Welcome to Westwind Ministries!
BEFORE you sit down to a meal think about how the food will affect you nutritionally. How well your body will respond to it. What kind of fuel is it for God’s Temple.
Pray before you eat ask for the Holy Spirit's help so that you do not over eat. Don’t forget that self control is a seed that is in you—you need to water it and cultivate it.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (AMP)
19 Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own,
20 You were bought with a price [purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body.
Points to remember:
Don’t Clog your body with stress and negative feelings.
REMEMBER—God can also use sickness to slow us down and get our attention.
The flesh and the spirit are continually antagonistic , they are always at war.
How we feel about ourselves has a direct effect on how we look.
Eating right is a lifestyle.
Willpower seems to leave when you need it the most.
Change your lifestyle.
Love your body
For every pound you loss you take three pounds off of your knees.
BE AN INVESTER NOT A GAMBLER.
People take better care of their cars than their bodies.
MAKING THE RIGHT DECISIONS IS A DAY to DAY process.
Do not use food as your comforter.
Remember: Gluttony is as much a sin as any other addiction.
1 Corinthians 6:18 (AMP)
Every sin -- The Greek is forcible. "Every sin whatsoever that a man doeth." Every other sin; even gluttony, drunkenness, and self-murder are "without," that is, comparatively external to the body (Mr 7:18; compare Pr 6:30-32). He certainly injures, but he does not alienate the body itself; the sin is not terminated in the body; he rather sins against the perishing accidents of the body (as the "belly," and the body's present temporary organization), and against the soul than against the body in its permanent essence, designed "for the Lord." "But" the fornicator alienates that body which is the Lord's, and makes it one with a harlot's body, and so "sinneth against his own body," that is, against the verity and nature of his body; not a mere effectcontradiction of the truth of the body, wrought within itself [ALFORD]. on the body from without, but aA Commentary: Critical, Experimental, and Practical on the Old and New Testaments.
