Heart Health: Part 1 Guard Your Heart Against Bitterness
February is Heart Health Month. According to #Go Red for Women, heart disease is the number killer of women in American. The website, www.Goredforwomen.org states that 1 in 3 women die from heart disease a year. During this month’s episode we will discuss the health of our spirit (inner man), physical and mental well-being.
We start off with a discussion on rooting out bitterness. Life can kick us in the gut at times, but we must learn how to recover without allowing the seeds of resentment to plant itself within the foundation of our spirits. Hebrews 12:15 states, “looking carefully least anyone fall short of the grace of God; least any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled;” (New Kings James Version)
True resilience is the ability to endure tough times without it changing the core of who you are in a negative way. Our struggles should make us stronger, not weaken us.
Key takeaways include:
· Never internalize personal attacks
· Learn instantaneous forgiveness
· Acknowledge your pain and embrace it
· Confess your feelings to God
· Praising God is fuel to recharge your spirit
· We strive to produce the Godly behaviors of the Spirit
It is urgent that we position ourselves to bring forth the positive behaviors of the Spirit, such as kindness, patience, longsuffering, forbearance and peace. Our walk with God is a lifetime commitment. Preparation includes our total being to successfully run a marathon of faith. We will get a reward that is priceless.
