A healthy person works out every day to keep the body in shape . . .but a spiritually healthy person kneels in prayer to keep the soul in shape.
Healthy people have faith, hope and love that they are strong enough for the journey . . . but spiritual healthy people have faith, hope and love that it is in the journey that they will become strong.
Welcome to Healthy Spirituality. My hope for this blog is that the words nurture you closer to God and help you discover his wonder and his unconditional love he has for you.
Healthy spirituality can be defined in many different ways. For me and this blog, it is the sense of wholeness only possible through a relationship with God. We are never complete without him and He continually pursues us to draw us back to him.
The foundation of spiritual health always is in prayer – listening and talking with God. Another component is paying attention to and learning God’s word. Studying the stories God gave us in the Bible and most importantly, studying the life of his son, Jesus, gives us guidance and discernment on our walk in life.
And we can’t forget our own story. I believe God has planted deep within our soul, a story, our core essence, created by him, unique only to us. Our journey on earth as humans is to discover and sing that song God has placed within us.
“We had thought that we were human beings making a spiritual journey; it may be truer to say that we are spiritual beings making a human journey.”
