" My child, love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind, for this is the first and greatest commandment..."
Worshiping and desiring me is a form of self-care
Just as you desire a good earthly life in the name of self-care, worshiping and desiring me is also a form of self-care. Desiring and walking with me will provide nourishment in all aspects of your life, spiritually, mentally and physically. Take care of your spiritual health as you do for your mental and physical self.
Beloved, feeling at ease and at peace is a form of self-care. From spiritual nourishment, you shall feel nourishment in all aspects of your life be it physical or mental. Give your body, mind and soul as a sacrifice to worship me. Just as you engage in a healthy lifestyle by eating healthy, working out regularly, drinking water among other healthy lifestyle choices as a form of self-care, worship me, desire me and accept me as a form of spiritual self-care.
Love me and obey my word and commands as a form of self- care
My child, live a life that honors and glorifies me. Follow my commands and teachings to receive great rewards from me. Accept my salvation through repenting and confessing of your sins. Seek me at all times and I shall raise you above all your problems and battles.
Dear one, as much as you put your physical health and self-care into consideration, put your spiritual self-care first and into consideration as well. Spiritual self-care is achieved by accepting and walking in my light, living a righteous life that serves and worships me, repenting and praying for the forgiveness of your sins and accepting my salvation and redemption through my son Jesus Christ.
Avoid evil and sin by changing your lifestyle
Just as you avoid an unhealthy lifestyle, such as bad eating habits, poor sleeping habits and minimum consumption of water to promote self-care, the same way you should depart from evil and sin as a form of spiritual self-care. Sin corrupts your soul and leads you to darkness and so you should adapt a lifestyle that disregards sin. Repent and pray that your sins be forgiven and receive my salvation to shed light, life, joy and peace in your spiritual life.
When you promote spiritual self-care by accepting me and my ways, you can be guaranteed that every other aspect of your life will be catered for. I shall lead you, protect you from evil and temptations that often lead to sin. Lead a lifestyle that worships and glorifies me and you can be assured of living a righteous life full of my promises and blessings.
Practise self-care in your daily life
Avoiding stress promotes self-care in general. My child, worry not for I shall carry all your burdens. Cast your problems and worries unto me for I love you and care for you. No burden or problem is greater than me. Cast all your anxiety and fears on me. I will sustain you and never let you fall. I will keep you strong and victorious. Prayer is the way that you cast your burdens unto me, so pray always.
Dear one, just as you take those vacations and trips to relax and recharge to promote physical self-care, the same way you should recharge your spiritual self-care by; visiting the church, reading my word and praying to me. Visit my house to listen to my gospel as it will encourage you and strengthen your faith in me. You shall find comfort in my house. Seek me and I shall grant you the peace you require and need for your self-care. I encourage you my child to take care of yourself, body, mind, soul and spirit for I dwell in you through the Holy Spirit. You are my temple and I live in you.
Reflect on These Words Today:
“Cast all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.”
(1 Peter 5:7)
“If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.”
(1 Corinthians 3:17)
