Anyone who follows my posts or have read at least one of my posts knows I am sincere about my health. Last night I attended our first night of four Nutritional Workshops entitled “Take Back Your Health” facilitated Michael Sloan, at our church, Green Grove Baptist Church in West Berlin, NJ. Some of the highlights for me was confirmation about watching what you eat, and adding exercise to your daily routine.
He began by reminding us the we have the ability to heal ourselves by faith. He cited Jesus commending those who he healed:
Matt: 9:11 Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment.
Matt: 9:29 Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you, and their sight was restored.
Luke 8:48 Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.”
However, there are many of us who have lost loved ones who we believe were strong in their faith, yet they still died. What about them. Well I believe there are two ways of looking at this. 1) All things come to pass because it is God’s will. 2) Faith without Works is Dead.
Mr. Sloan is teaching us how to reverse disease in our body by using our immune systems to accomplish this feat. God gave us our immune system for this purpose. The foods we each and exercise assist our immune systems.
Wow…as I write this “The Doctors” will be talking about will “Faith Heal You?”. I will definitely tune in. I believe Faith is the magic pill.
Walked this morning. I am walking with someone who is 40 years younger than myself. Mr. Sloan said if we are out of shape and we begin to exercise, we are starting out at square one. Although my young partner is younger, she admits to never walking. So she and I are walking as equals. If you do not use your muscles, you will lose your muscles.
If you do not use the gifts God gave you, you will lose them.
Praise the Lord, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
