You do know that your body is not your own right? Scripture tells us so:
1 Corinthians 6:19 KJV
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
Now that I have reminded you that your body is the Lord’s Temple, perhaps you can start to look at fuelling it with food more respectfully, intentionally. I certainly did.
When I got this revelation, I instinctively became more mindful of what I ate. I love and respect God, I believe that as you are on the Hopelify platform you do too. My love and respect for God, caused me to be more inclined to THINK about the foods I ate. I believe that you will too.
Seeing my body as His Temple, HELPED me to gravitate towards eating more of a wide variety of healthy foods. These are typically the foods our good God has so graciously blessed us with. They are real, healthy, wholesome, and minimally processed.
I must say that this revelation has been instrumental to me being able to get a better grip, on looking after my body, His Temple. I eat better and exercise regularly. As we all know, exercise also plays a role in keeping our bodies healthy.
The benefits of seeing and fuelling my body as His Temple made a huge difference in my healthy lifestyle journey. I had been on this path for many years, but did not enjoy the level of ease that I do now.
It certainly is not eating moderate amounts of predominantly real foods that causes us to put on weight and/or ails us…it is often eating without discretion processed foods that is the problem.
