My Why

Dear Body,

Your make up alone is one to be admired. You have been created in the image of God. That alone is an honor. Not only did He create you in His image but once He was finished and looked over what He had made He was so very pleased! 

You are a marvelous design and one that is to be cared for because of who lives in you, Jesus! 

You hold within you the One who died for you. You are designed to reflect Him and live like Him. 

The nourishment you need comes not from bread alone, but from the living Word of God. 

You will never feel satisfied or nourished or balanced from earthly things or food. You need Jesus. You need the meat of His Word. You need to feast and bask in His presence. 

Investing in you, taking care of you is actually investing in Him and taking care of the Temple for which He lives in. 

Yes, your outward features are important, but it's what's inside of you that is of greater importance. 

You see one day you will die and soon begin to decay, but the one thing inside of you, your soul, it will rise and live forever wearing a new body, one that is perfect and whole and complete. 

So until that day comes, I have been  entrusted with you. And I want to honor the One that lives within you. 

I want to take such good care of you so I can then invest and take care of others. I want you to be the best you can be so I can be the best I can be for Him! 

You are far more capable then you realize. Not because of anything you can do, but because of who made you and lives in you. 

You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Let's do amazing things for the kingdom of God. 

Jesus finds you more than worthy and He loves you. So walk in confidence because of who made you.
