GPW Minute for 8/14 - Physical Hope!

Hope and Physical Wellness  (Hope is the feeling you have that the feeling you have will get better) A WORD FROM THE LORDNot only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;  perseverance, character; and character, hope.  And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans 5:3-5 A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT Exhausted, tired out, in need of a nap can become a way of life. God gave us the gifts of sleep, rest and recreation to renew our tired bones! WE’RE PRAYING FOR YOU “Thank You, Father, for the restoration of sleep that prefigures Your final restoration of a tired and broken universe. Amen.” RENEWAL MOMENT Take a deep breath. Exhale Slowly. “Lord, have mercy.” Thanksgiving for the renewal of sleep and rest! MARKER OF WELLBEING: Physical As I grow in God’s grace of Physical SELF-CONTROL, I am finding joy in the VITALITY that flows from practicing healthy choices.
