Many of us are like me….born in a family/culture that eats a certain way that has transferred into adulthood as the normal way of life(although it’s not the healthiest).
Well….I have a strong desire to change this norm of my life and I’ve had this desire since I gave my life to Christ in 2011. Once God chose me, He changed my desires. One of those desires was my pleasure in drinking excessive amounts of liquor and eating chilli cheese fries from Coney Island after leaving the club too many times to count. I no longer wanted to do it and as a result i shed 30 pounds. ~Side note: After seeing the benefits it encourages me to do more and more that pleases God while constantly asking Him to conform my desires to His.~ This health journey has been an ever going, up and down process, much like my natural hair journey 😏
The last few years and most recently the last few weeks I’ve decided to act on what I really desire, being healthy. Not that I havent been acting on it in the pass, I’m just taking another step that will benefit my well being. I truly truly desire to be healthy and wealthy in the natural and in the spirit.
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
3 John 1:2
This scripture supports my decision and it’s been a staple in my health journey as well as…
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
1 Corinthians 3:16-17 KJV
I wish I would’ve recorded my natural hair journey a little more because I have fond memories and it was and still is definitely a journey. So now that I’m at a pivot in my health journey AGAIN…I think I should be more intentional about recording it. After all, this is “the journey” blog…
Come with me if it’s your desire as well, and if not still come with and I pray that you are inspired to make some small and lasting changes that create big and positive change in life.
I love y’all and I would love for all of us to operate as close to how God created us as possible. Pray for my journey and I’ll be praying for yours(whatever it may be).
