Keeping Ministry Professionals and Lay-Leaders in Ministry through Biblical and practical self-care. Today’s quote is from Part 24 of the blog series.
“Consider the following consequences to not taking care of our physical selves: being overweight or obese, tooth decay, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease and stroke, diabetes, osteoporosis, some cancers, depression, eating disorders, lack of energy.” — Julia Bruce
Wellspring’s Verse of the Day: 2 Thessalonians 3:3. But the Lord is faithful; He will strengthen and guard you from the evil one.
Our emotional-self benefits from spiritual self-care with less stress, anxiety, and depression as we release our cares and concerns to the One who is in control of the universe and who has good plans for us.
As we pray, study God’s Word, and sing praise songs, our anxiety, stress, and depression levels are lowered because our focus is on Christ who is always in control of our circumstances rather than focusing on our problems and difficulties.
