It’s Day 16 of the 21-Day Mental and Spiritual Health Series!
Over the past two weeks, I have talked a great deal about how we should think and act in order to live our best lives and bolster our mental and spiritual health. I realize that understanding these concepts and actually living them out are two completely different things. Nobody is perfect, and we will all have our good days and bad days. What’s important is that we continually strive to work harder and to do better.
Consistently acting in love, thinking positively, and fighting against the influences of the enemy and the flesh is no easy task! All of these things take practice and often require significant conscious effort. We will never be perfect- but that should not keep us from trying our best!
Scriptures for Today’s Post
2 Timothy 2:15 (ESV)- Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
Colossians 3:17 (ESV)- And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
Proverbs 13:4 (ESV)- The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied.
Thank you for your great love for me. You hold me safe in your hands, and I will trust in you. I know that you desire for me to be in good health mentally and spiritually, and I decree and declare that I will actively seek to improve my health even when it seems daunting. Lord, I understand that I can never be perfect in my own strength. Instead of focusing on my limited ability, I choose to focus on continually working toward the goals that you set forth in your Word. I find peace in the knowledge that nothing is impossible for you, Lord.
In Jesus’ mighty name I pray,
