Love Your Body Month Recap
As this month is coming to an end so quickly. I thought I would throw up a quick recap of what we talked about this month! If you have an exercise routine, post idea or question please feel free to comment. I want this blog to be a place were you can come and learn how to live both a physically and spiritually fit life. If you are making that choice to live a fit life both in the physically and spiritual I think it’s important to seek knowledge in both departments and a lot of times they work hand in hand and that’s what I love about fitness for our body and spiritual fitness for our hearts!
This concept of Love your body is so broad. It could boil down to so many different area’s in your life both physically and emotionally. Whatever your struggle I hope that your were really able to work on these area’s and when I mean work I mean gradual change.One day at a time. I think sometimes when we try to change area’s in our life we try to change too much to fast. It’s not something that is going to happen over night but over time if you really focus on Loving yourself as God loves you will be radiating a love for not only yourself but those around you. (We will revisit one topic in March about last weeks post (eliminating one bad habit and adding a good one in its place). Don’t worry I haven’t forgotten keep up the hard work ladies! We are in this journey together to help each other live both physically and spiritually fit lives!
Matthew 5:5 ” you’re blessed when you’re content with who you are-no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought.”
The bible affirms self-acceptance by exhorting believers to love others as themselves. Matthew 22;37-40 “Jesus said unto him, thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all my soul, and with all my mind. This is the first and great commandment. and the second is like unto it, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”
The bible teaches that when we genuinely open our hearts to him, God accepts us just as we are. And, if he accepts us-faults and all-then who are we to believe otherwise? God Loves us and wants the best for us, He wants us to live a healthy lifestyle. We can start this journey today, remind yourselves daily of the benefits you will earn when you start loving your body and establishing healthier habits and thoughts.
