Biblical Healing and Whole Wellness 

 

It is imperative that we recognize our lifestyle and eating habits pollute our temple, break down our immune system and cause us to be sick. Sickness is simply the body reacting to us putting something into it that God did not intend or design for it to have. Until steps are taken to recognize and remove the cause of disease and suffering, only degeneration an early death will result. Bible puts it this way and we must learn “be not deceived, God is not mocked, for whatsoever a man soweth that shall he reap” Galatians 6:7. We cannot eat the diet of this world and enjoy perfect health and vitality. The choices we make determine whether we live in sickness or health.

If we choose to have abundant life, it will be necessary to change the diet and lifestyle to which we have been accustomed or addicted. Although it initially may sound difficult and restrictive to obtain optimal health it is the only choice we have. Our heavenly father set laws for our infinite good to preserve life and allow his children to attain their highest possible state of wellness. He made no boundaries on what we may attend, but our diet and lifestyle choices often limit us when we knowingly or unknowingly violate his natural laws. When we bring our lifestyle into alignment with God’s laws, most physical problems just simply begin to be washed away.

Yes, God wants his children to be well, and he is able to heal our broken bodies just like when he walked among us. However, we are called to be reverent of his natural laws! When natural laws are violated, we reap the consequences of our actions. Many Christians want to live the way they like, eat what they want, and then they get sick and some blame and question Him. But God very clearly warns us and calls us to reject worldly was the flesh and driving selfish nature of want and need placed in us by sin. As we humble ourselves and become obedient to our creator and the natural and physical laws he established, we will realize that it is a privilege and indeed an honor to serve God and honor his Holy temple.

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and destroy: I come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” John 10:10

In today’s world most have strayed so far from the guidelines we have been given in the Bible. We have violated all the natural laws God provided at the time of creation, and we have become complacent about our health. We except illness as a normal part of life. So let’s consider some of the reasons why it is imperative for us to get back to a biblical understanding of nutrition and lifestyle. Too often we feel the need to seek physicians, whom we have been taught have the cure for all our ills. When in fact what Physicians do is address, alleviate and suppress symptoms. However, prevention and maintenance are much easier and certainly more cost effective. But that would affect the powers at be bottom line. So it is not the primary focus. Having a population that remains generally unwell is much more profitable than a population that is objective and aware. Is important for everyone to learn how to more effectively implement these natural laws that God has given. God set before us life and death and asked us to choose life. He did not leave us with out some guidelines to follow. These guidelines are quite simple and are found in the Bible and in nature all around us. These guidelines do not stress the body nor will they tax the emotions, even though they contain tremendous powers. The guidelines God gave us are

-proper nutrition

-pure air

-pure water

-active lifestyle

-sunshine

-adequate rest

-thankful and grateful faithful spirit

The sad and unfortunate truth is as a people we have adulterated and negatively impacted every single one of these required sources for life. There is no longer any pure source of nutrition due to pesticides and soil nutrient depletion we have adulterated our food source with GMO’s. Our air is laden with toxic irritants and our bodies are under constant attack. There is no longer a pure source of water on our planet. And our lifestyles are that of sedentary complacency. Often with attitudes of blame and Great lack of responsibility. If we believe he created us than we realize the reality is that someone designed and created us. And if someone designed and created us we have just like a vehicle requirements to maintain our optimal performance. They cannot run on just anything and remain functioning at top capacity and capability. If we don’t change our oil for example eventually our vehicle will fall into disrepair and stop working We in our ignorance and unbelief, have totally changed and adulterated gods plan, and the result is sickness, disease and unhappiness. We can’t serve the Lord in a sick body, so it is time to take responsibility for our own bodies and health and not leave it up to anyone else or blame other people or outside causes for our declining state. God has not failed us. He is the same yesterday today and forever. We my friends are the ones who have gone astray. I invite you to truly meditate upon this. Digging to his word and ask him what he has for you to do in this area.

Supporting Family Healing

How I support our families healing. Firstly I work very hard to reduce our toxic load and ease stress on our body systems. I explain it to them like this. Our bodies all have their our individual personal army. But we only have one and it protects and fights on behalf of us against all and any threats. Weather they are chemical threats like stress and emotional imbalance or a physical cut scraped bruise or boo boo. But also a threats from a potential germ invasion 😳🤒😷 even potential genetic traits can be allowed to develop fully.
So if our bodies are taxed by trying to manage our every day life choices. That tax on our system weather it’s from synthetic fragrance, chemical based products, inflammatory foods, foods that encourage overproduction of mucus, caffeine that simulates our bodies synthetically and can irritate emotional imbalances. The list could go on and on and ON. We are reducing our army’s resources taxing it and spreading our army very thin throughout our bodies. This does not then allow for much retroactive work! Or allow it very effective defences in our everyday life.
I am very conscious with our diet and the products used in our home. I research and use high quality targeted age appropriate supplements to support their specific needs. I do extra things daily like spraying our beds with a on guard sheet spray to protect us form any allergens that may have been trying to settle in our beds.
I have the kids regularly smell our apothecary of essential oils and have them share the oils they are drawn to as well as the ones they are not digging that day. I turn to my incredible emotions and Essential Oils wheel to see how best to support them that day. If there is a real heavy emotion attached to a oil that day. I try to carefully give some support in that area throughout our day and give them the opportunity to talk if they are feeling moved to do so. This is a area that I would say has made some of the deepest change. The insightful deep meaningful conversations that I have been blessed to share with our boys as a result of the essential oils are invaluable and immeasurable. We have prayer and quite time together daily to ensure we all remain connected to our faith and find peace in our day with him. We stretch our bodies and do deep breathing exercises as a family in our first school break. We use prayer and positive affirmation to begin encouraging new emotional track work and chemical reactions within our body as they rally to the various causes of our day that happen both to us and around us. I try to ensure their day flows with consistency so they may find comfort in expectation of what’s to come and know what to expect and what’s expected of them.
Lastly I’m human and when I fail I try to be vulnerable honest and offer sincere apologies. I try to talk at their level obviously and ensure it appropriate about what might be going on with me and how I might be feeling. Kids often have these big feelings and emotions running around their heads that they couldn’t even begin to explain or put words to because they don’t understand them or where they came form. Including them on my emotional process and how I connect feelings to events and experiences allows them to explore their little lives and gives him an example about how they might begin to unpack what might be bothering them.
