LIVING A HEALTHFUL LIFE
And hope does not disappoint us because God has poured out his love in our hearts by the Holy Spirit He has given us...
What is Forgiveness: It is a gift that contains the power to restore damaged relationships given by someone who has been offended to the person who caused the offence. It is a decision to choose mercy over justice.
Managing High Blood Pressure: Hypertension can occur as a result of an increased workload on the heart which increases the force of blood pushing against the walls of the blood vessels. For the majority of people, the cause of high blood pressure (essential hypertension) is unknown.
Knowledge of God: There are many ways in which God is seeking to make himself known to us... Nature speaks to our senses without ceasing. The open heart will be impressed with the love and glory of God as revealed through the works of his hands.
“To keep the body in good health is a duty…otherwise we shall not be able to keep the mind strong and clear.”
The relation that exists between the mind and the body is very intimate. When one is affected, the other sympathizes. The condition of the mind affects the health to a far greater degree than many realize. Many of the diseases from which men suffer are the result of mental depression. Grief, anxiety, discontent, remorse, guilt, distrust, all tend to break down the life forces and to invite decay and death.
Disease is sometimes produced, and is often greatly aggravated, by the imagination. Many are lifelong invalids who might be well if they only thought so. Many imagine that every slight exposure will cause illness, and the evil effect is produced because it is expected. Many die from disease the cause of which is wholly imaginary.
