Girls Night Out!

There is no doubt that being in shape spiritually is the most important kind of fitness. But being in shape physically is very important as well. Some people know the Bible well - they pray often and they know what to do, but they don't have the physical energy to do anything at all. All three parts of your being - physical, emotional and spiritual - should be healthy and in sync for you to function most productively. Your body is the temple of the most high God, and you must honor Him with the care you take of it. Seek a balance, and try to be healthy and God-honoring in every part of life.

For God has bought you with a great price. So use every part of your body to give glory back to God because he owns it” 1 Corinthians 6:20 (TLB).
All of us have prioritized our lives in some form or fashion, whether consciously or unconsciously. Maybe you don't do it purposefully, but you organize your life based on a hierarchy of needs and interests. The Bible makes it clear that maintaining physical health should be one of the highest priorities for us. God created you to be active, healthy and ready for what He has for you. God has great things planned for you, but you won't be able to accomplish them if you're unhealthy and unprepared. The apostle John wrote to a close friend and made sure that he knew physical health was just as essential as spiritual health. Being physically health is not just a good idea - it's a good spiritual idea!

“Dear friend, I am praying that all is well with you and that your body is as healthy as I know your soul is” 3 John 2 (TLB).
A good friend of mine Lori N. pointed out something to me that night. That even though I see my self differently when I look into a mirror not beauty all kinds of faults, to take the time to ask God to see myself through his eyes.
The MIRROR now is not my worst enemy!

Thank YOU for a GREAT Fun Night Ladies!

Just remember that the evil one knows how to bring you down...don't let him. God thinks you're awesome and you are HIS!!! I constantly have to see myself through Him. I am my worst critic. He is good and you're beautiful, baby :)
