I’ve been in pretty good shape every since I was a teenager, had a large network of friends, managed money well, was very well liked, very stable emotionally, and mentally/intellectually was ahead of many of my peers. Most would say that I lived a very healthy life. THERE WAS STILL SOMETHING MISSING & I DIDN’T FEEL FULFILLED DURING MY “MOST SUCCESSFUL TIMES”.
Through a series of events in which I felt God pursuing me aggressively & passionately, I finally had to come face to face with the unhealthy lies that I hid behind, and take off the mask that society persuaded me to chase after and put on.
I can vividly remember deciding to take off my “mask” and entering into a Relationship with Jesus Christ. From there God has shown me what it means to be WELL & WHOLE. I have purpose in knowing that I was made to glorify God. I have identity in knowing that I am made in the image of the God of the Universe. I have peace in knowing that my Creator LOVES ME SO MUCH. I have worth in knowing that God gave His most prized possession for ME, even when I didn’t want anything to do with Him, and that covers all of my hang-ups, failures, greed, selfishness, and hurt. I NOW KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO BE WELL, HEALTHY & WHOLE. WHILE I TRAIN MY BODY TO BE IN TOP SHAPE, I KNOW THAT THERE IS YET A TRAINING THAT FAR EXCEEDS BODILY EXERCISE AND WILL REAP A REWARD SO GREAT. THIS IS THE VERY REWARD MY HEART HAS BEEN WAITING FOR MY WHOLE LIFE!
1 Timothy 4:8 – For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.
