Welcome to Celebrating God’s Grace, a Women World Leaders podcast. I’m your host, Janet Berrong. Thank you for joining us today as we celebrate God’s grace in our lives, in ministry, and around the world. It’s an honor for me to be here sharing with you today. Some of the things that are near and dear to my heart, health, wellness beauty in Jesus. Wow, what a combo, right? While they really do go hand in hand. For many years, I’ve worked in the health and wellness industry. And I’ve witnessed the restoration, transformation in healings with the application of these principles, eating fresh living foods, getting enough physical exercise, and spiritually being in alignment with the Word of God. God made us to be healthy and whole, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Today I want to focus on the physical health. Have you ever heard this saying, If I knew I’d lived this long, I would have taken better care of myself? Well, in a sense, it’s funny, but in reality, it’s the truth. Physical health has three key elements, which include the physical activity, rest and nutrition. To have a good standing on physical health. We need a balance of these three elements. God teaches us that our bodies are the temple. In first Corinthians 316 through 17 says, Don’t you know that yourselves are God’s temple, and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person. For God’s temple is sacred. And you together are that temple. It is found once again in First Corinthians 619 through 20. Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God, you are not your own. You were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. Not only do we want to take care of our temples for our own physical well being, but we are physical representation of God. Recently, I attended some local American college football games, it reminded me of how much they have to train to be in and win the game. They have to be physically fit, and emotionally and mentally focused. I see that for my daily life as well. If I’m not fit for the day, I get tired and weary physically, then it starts to affect me mentally. Regular exercise has been proven to reduce stress, ward off anxiety and feelings of depression, boosts self esteem, improve sleep. Exercise also has the added benefits of strengthening your heart, increasing your energy level. It lowers the blood pressure. It improves muscle tone and strength. It strengthens and builds bones. It helps reduce body fat. It makes you look fit and healthy. If you’re anything like me, you have to have a plan. And my plan is taking time for self care works best in the morning. And that means nothing else gets in the way that day. If it’s meal, prep, exercise, and quiet time with the Lord. I know he wants only the best for you my beautiful sisters. Until next time, keep your shoulders back your eyes on him standing tall and confident. Philippians one six reads. I am certain that God who began a good work within you will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. Father, so many things happen to end up intimidating women who have committed themselves to serve you. the busyness of life and the attacks from the enemy, cause many women to second guess themselves and some of them even give up on the desires to serve you in ministry. Father God, let your divine power be upon these women who are devoted to serving you in different capacities all over the world. Remind them to be encouraged when the storms of life are against them in the name of Jesus,
