Body, Garden, God Series- Part 1: The Incredible Human Body
Have you ever stopped to think about the incredible creation you are?
You are fantastically fashioned in a purposeful way by a designer with eons of experience. Before you were born he knew you. He knew the shape of your eyes, the way your cheeks dimple when you smile, he knew the very second that your tiny heart started its very first rhythmic beating.
I bet he paused for a tiny moment in history, with bated breath, as your heart fluttered to life, a small smile lighting his face for just an instant as he welcomed you, his new masterpiece, into being.
Are you aware that you are not an accident?
You are not a mistake. Not the result of a murky pool of mud and a long process of evolution, but the masterpiece of a personal designer.
He brought you into being because he desired a relationship with you.
If you are in a room where there are other people, stop what you are doing and take a look at them. Go on, do it! See how their chest rises and falls with little conscious thought. Their skin holds 60000 kilometres of blood vessels, hundreds of muscles, bones and organs together in such a miraculous way that they can walk and sit and lie down without all their insides falling out!
The human body is the most complex machine there is, yet often the least cared for and nourished- and I am not just talking about food here…
Did you know that you were designed for health, happiness and a life of abundance?
What if I said it’s not too late to make a change?
Our bodies are the physical toolkit we have been blessed with to help us live the life we were intended to. What is inside this outer shell still stumps scientists today. Why do we think, feel, cry and laugh? You, my reader, are truly an epic masterpiece inside and out!
It’s time to get off the consumer treadmill, stop letting screens rule our lives, and ask hard questions. It’s time to start believing you can pursue your dreams and live on purpose. We need to fuel our health for GOOD. Not only physically, but emotionally as well.
Science is now testament to the fact that our bodies have an absolutely magnificent capacity for healing. Not only from cuts and scrapes, but from chronic disease and mental health states as well. We all know that when we graze our knee, it heals. We don’t do anything for this to take place…or do we? When we are healthy we give our bodies the best fuel for healing. This means that we actually are contributors to the way that little graze heals.
This is what I know about you. You are loved. Cherished and created for a purpose. I hope this blog will inspire you to choose purposefully how to fuel your body for optimum physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. To learn and appreciate more about the intricate and miraculous machine that is the Human Body.
Stay tuned for the next post in the series…Part 2: Our Amazing Garden.
