Get Healthy

If I were to ask what is your description of healthy eating, I'd probably get lots of different answers. Some might say no sugar, while others may say no artificial sweetener is healthier. Some may say eating fruit is healthy, while the no carb people would say not to eat many fruits. Some may say eating protein is good for health, while others might say only vegetables, no meat.

The truth is, the healthiest eating plan is the one you can stick to. No I don't mean diet of ice cream and chips. I just mean that you & I could pick completely different healthy eating plans and both be equally successful.

Getting spiritual healthy is the same. Some may wake up early to spend time with God, while others wait for the quietness of night when the rest of the family sleeps. Some may read directly from the Bible, while others prefer the help of a Bible study book or devotional. Contemporary worship or traditional. Attending a Baptist church, others Methodist, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Christian or non-denominational, to name a few.

The truth is there are many ways to be spiritually healthy in Christ. To say that "our way" is the only way is wrong. There only "one way" is Christ. No one comes to the Father, except through Him. But the ways we choose to worship and pray, as long as they are Biblical sound, can be as individual as we are.

The important thing here is to choose a plan! You won't get healthy on the chips and ice cream plan. You have to pick a real health plan. So pick a real spiritual plan and stick to it! Here's to a healthy relationship with Christ!

We are in complete agreement on this issue.

I like this post and agree. Given that the scripture is living and breathing, what is "Biblically sound" can also look different at various points in our spiritual growth.

Nice Post

Seriously, if I don't make a plan and stick to it.....well, the junk food just takes over.
