Honestly, How Healthy Are You?

Before Moses died, Scripture says; Moses was one hundred and twenty years old when he died, his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated. (Deuteronomy 34:7)

The Bible tells us that the eyes are the windows of the soul, the light of the body.

What this means is Moses did not die of an illness nor was his body feeble or his mind weak. God was ready to take him home, Moses had fulfilled his purpose. Joshua passed on at age 110, after he came off the battle field. caleb went full bore battling giants in his late eighties, until the Lord called him home.
These heros of the Bible never spent time in doctor's offices or hospitals for cancer or any dis-ease. You were created in the image of God (Genesis 1:26) for a reason ~ to be a reflection of God to the world for His glory. Are you healthy? or do you think you healthy simply because there's an absence of a grave disease in your life?

Good health is a lot more than absence of disease in your life. Good health is waking up in the morning feeling rested and ready to attack the day. Good health is having the energy to keep up with the job, the family, the kids your involved with daily. Good health is having something left in the tank after you've put in a full day of work. Good health is thriving, not just surviving.
God intended us to prosper, living long and abundant lives. Enjoying everyday life!

Just think about the times we have eaten pizzas, doughnuts, ice cream, which makes ones arteries harden. How about those potlucks with main dishes such as mounds of fried chicken, pork drenched in a molasses~based sauce, greasy onion rings, potatoe salads, coleslaw, and, oh me oh my, those desserts...three layer German chocolate cake, apple pie with whipped cream, cobblers!

Think also about those holiday meals that are cooked every year. Turkey, ham, dressing, potatoes and gravy. Then to top that wonderful meal off, we have all the desserts and snack foods.

No wonder the church has it's share of sick and hurting people. It is mind boggling the number of people seeking prayer for cancer treatments, heart ailments, arthritis, and liver problems. Ill health is the number one subject of prayer requests! Children fighting cancer, diabetes and heart problems, thirty year olds battling with Parkinson's disease, having heart attacks, fifty year olds exhibiting disorders like dimentia and Alzheimer's disease.

Don't we realize that we are setting ourselves up for debilitating disease and/or early death by making poor choices in what we eat and how we live? Sure we do. We live in the information age.
Why aren't we as healthy as we should be?

God spoke through His prophet Hosea thousands of years ago. In addressing the moral and spiritual decay of the nation Israel, the Lord said; My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge because they have rejected knowledge...(Hosea 4:6)

Too many people go through life without realizing that at least 8o per cent of diseases are lifestyle related.

How can I have fun during the holiday’s without gaining weight? As most Americans are well aware, the holidays can be detrimental to dieting. In fact, the average American gains five pounds between Thanksgiving and New Years, but it does not have to be this way any longer. You can get a head start and follow the tips below so that when Santa Claus comes to town, you can be a little bit naughty and still look nice for the new year.

Be Prepared to Party:
Have a serving of Biometics Pro-Fit Plus or Body’s Best before you head out. Filling up on protein, fiber and water before and during a party decrease your appetite. You can avoid overeating by curbing your appetite before the party starts. Do not choose to be “on or off” a diet. Chances are that while you are at a party, you will break any strict diet. On the other hand, if you are “off your diet,” all restrictions are off and you may over eat. The key to permanent weight loss is not in dieting, but in changing your attitude towards nutrition permanently.

Keep It Under Control:
Chew thoroughly and use a small plate. You can only fit so much on a snack-size plate and the food that you choose will digest more easily if it is chewed well. Finish dinner within an hour. Begin any holiday feast with a salad and be sure to eat your entire meal within an hour. By stretching out the length of the dinner, you will be inclined to eat more. Don’t eat for the sake of eating. Just because everyone else is doing it, it doesn’t mean that you have to. If you do snack, choose salty foods over sweet foods.

Leave the Party Behind You:
Once the party is over, the eating frenzy is too. Just because you break your normal eating habits for one evening does not mean that you can continue to do so. Get back to your daily routine the next day. This includes your exercise schedule. Do not wait to get back to the gym. Your metabolism will remain high if you continue to exercise.

Amen to all of the above.

We are not supposed to be sick and die from awful diseases. That is not Gods plan for us.

The word of God above all other books will teach us how to live and eat for a long and healthy life.

Thank you for sharing this , so many are so lost.

Gods beautiful blessings for your day Debbie.
