Things of God

"I wish above all things

that you will prosper and be in health,

even as your soul prospers."  

1 John 1:2

How Healthy is Your Soul?

Have you had a Spiritual Wellness check-up lately?  

 

Are you Spiritually Active? Do you get enough Spiritual Exercise? Are your spiritual muscles growing stronger One Tree at a Time?

 

What about your Spiritual Nutrition?  What is your soul feeding upon?  Are you living on spiritual fast food?  Or are you enjoying spiritual feasts?

 

What about your Spiritual Rest?  Are you taking the time to be still and know God?  

 

Have you identified your Purpose in life?  Does this purpose give Meaning to your life?

 

Why is Spiritual Health Essential for being Positively Healthy?  

In order to be Positively Healthy, we have to be healthy in all areas of our beings: physical, mental, social, and spiritual. Studies show that there is a positive link between spirituality/religion and health.  Consider a few of these findings:

  • Religion may reduce stress and increase longevity.

  • Religious involvement is associated with greater purpose, optimism, generosity, and gratitude.

  • Individuals involved in church activities more than once per week had a 55% decreased risk of dying than those who didn't attend church.

  • There is a significant positive link between having a Sabbath rest and emotional/mental health. 

The Importance of Spiritual Meaning

Health is enhanced when it is filled with meaning.  Going through the motions of spiritual fast food does not satisfy the soul or improve health and well-being.  Only a life filled with spiritual meaning can significantly improve health and well-being.
