Those are the words on my hand today. We weren't created to just do our "own" thing but to live every day FOR Jesus. In our homes, work, church, community, and neighborhood. Let us live FOR Him today. Let us live to honor and please Him with the words that we say, with how we treat others, and yes...even how we care for ourselves and our bodies. There was a time where I only submitted myself partially to the Lord. I gave Him the pen to write my love chapter, career chapter, friendship chapter, and family chapter. BUT, when it came to my health chapter, I just didn't see what the big deal was if I took control of that myself. God wouldn't really care if I didn't eat all that well or didn't exercise all that much? Those are such temporary issues...why should they matter?
They matter because He entrusted me with this temple. They matter because my health can either support my mission to serve Him or it can be a barrier to what He calls me to do. It matters. All of me matters to God. My mind, my spirit, my body.
Friends, I challenge us to realize that we are not our own. Dying to ourselves and living for Christ knowing that true life is following HIM and death is gain because we get to BE with Him. May we honor Him with ALL we are. He does not want pieces...He wants everything. May we give our utmost for His highest.
