My reasoning to live healthy... I do not want to be DISQUALIFIED! Some people have their own reasoning for living a healthier life but my main reason is for me to truly live out my purpose and His will for my life
1 Corinthians 9:24-27
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.
My body needs to be healthy because it is a way I praise My Heavenly Father... My body is my gift to Him
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.
Changing my mindset
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Everything I do (like exercising) or even eating should GLORIFY my Father!
1 Corinthians 10:31
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
When I am tempted.....
1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
When I feel discouraged...
And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you
Remember I need to rest...
And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done.
