God Centered, Balanced view of Healthy Lifestyle

“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.”

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

By Pneff

Everyone is striving for perfection. Striving for the best body, most perfect complexion. Wanting to be the most beautiful, have the best hair and outfit. What we forget though, is that God has given us our bodies. Perfectly, originally designed by Him for each one of us specifically. We are souls and have bodies. Because God has given us our bodies we need to be good stewards of them and use them to please Him; to treat our bodies with respect and balance. Andie does a great job in CanYouStayForDinner? of explaining how balance finally clicked for her and helping others try to figure it out too.

Balance is such a hard concept for myself, and others to figure out. Living life, trying to eat right, exercise and do all the other things that come with the life of a college student gets pretty tricky. It’s difficult to figure out where to spend your time and what you concentrate on each day. It gets harder and more difficult to focus on what God has planned for our day and easier to focus on what the world wants. In this blog I am going to be focusing on having a healthy mind, body, and soul. Learning how to find balance between all three and my journey on trying to figure it all out.

    I find this a very helpful subject in that we all struggle through this. Even though sometimes we don’t realize it, the world wants to pull us in a different direction and it takes so much to allow god to be fully in control of our lives and how we live each day. I know that personally I struggle with this and am looking forward to reading your blog post.

  3. I agree with you it is hard to find the right balance as a college student.

  4. This is a really great post. You did a good job of giving a little bit of advice in your first post, but also letting the reader know what your following posts are going to be about.
