The Minister of Weight Loss and Healthy Eating

“Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well” (3 John 1:2).

The purpose of my blog is to encourage and enlighten about our body and soul health with an occasional political article thrown in.

My understanding of soul health includes our emotional, mental, and spiritual health which effects our bodily health. If our emotions are out of whack, our bodies will be adversely effected in ways such as obesity, being overweight, and being careless about our health.

We live in our body. Our body contains our essential personhood. The Holy Spirit dwells in our body. Just as we can’t see our emotions or mind, we can’t see the Holy Spirit residing in our body. But, He is in there!

The Apostle Paul put it this way, “Didn’t you realize that your body is a sacred place, the place of the Holy Spirit? Don’t you see that you can’t live however you please, squandering what God paid such a high price for? The physical part of you is not some piece of property belonging to the spiritual part of you. God owns the whole works. So let people see God in and through your body” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20 MSG).

Like the Apostle John prayed for body and soul health for his readers, I pray for body and soul health for you and for me and ask that you pray the same for me.

I hope you will be encouraged through my own insight and what God has revealed to me about body and soul fitness and what I have learned from others.

May our Lord richly bless you as we together press forward toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:14).
