30 Days of Manna

According to several studies, people with a faith-filled life tend to live longer, experience more contentment, and are healthier than their counterparts. There is not a singular prescription to improving my health because it is multi-faceted, which is why I am approaching it from two perspectives: physical and spiritual. I believe they are both connected, and this is supported by the studies’ claims, and essential to overall health.

Though most people believe I have a positive attitude and outlook on situations and circumstances, my inner voice is a cruel critic.

In Galatians 4, Scripture warns about losing our great attitude. I am the first to support others, yet rarely encourage myself. Why is that?

Paul, the writer of Galatians, associates doubtful, depressed believers with young children. Being a parent myself, I am constantly reminded of the encouragement and redirection needed to keep my son focused, safe, and healthy. As a Christian, I need mentors and spiritual advisors to keep me on track. As a woman trying to improve my overall health, I need positive, authentic, and honest people in my tribe to support me.

it’s always good to have people concerned about you with good intentions. ~ Galatians 4:18 (Common English Bible)

Paul explains to Christians – young and old – that a support system, or living within a community of believers, is crucial. .

I’ve explained before that I am blessed to have some amazing people in my tribe. They don’t always speak words I want to hear, but they always speak the truth and tell me what I need to hear. And I am thankful for each and every one of them.

Surround yourself with people who see greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself.

    This is so very true!!!!!! I am a cheerleader for so many people, but am so very critical of myself. Why do we do this?????? I am constantly a work in progress….and this is something that I need to work on……really hard!

      You’re preaching to the choir, Sister Jules! I think we need to get some pom-poms and cheer for ourselves. 🙂
