My daughter always tells me that you can’t outwork a bad diet! In other words, I shouldn’t go and eat 2 Big Mac, fries, and drink a supersized Coke! All the exercise in the world can’t overcome a bad diet like that! Know this, a healthy body needs a good diet and consistent exercise. Getting in shape does have it’s benefits. You feel so much better, you have more energy, and you exercises your heart. But the same can be said of a healthy mind. A healthy mind produces joy.
Philippians 4:8 says, “Finally, brothers, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things.” What are we filling our minds with? Trash in-Trash out! Busy your mind with the things of God. Fill your mind with gratitude, thankfulness, victory, and God’s Word. Guard your heart, eyes, and your mind today! Let your eyes look straight ahead and fix your gaze on Jesus Christ! God bless.
