“Healthier today than I was yesterday. Healthier tomorrow than I was today.”
The Wellness Ministry of First Family Church exists to offer opportunities for everyone to pursue their healthiest potential. Regardless of where you are in your wellness journey, each day you can take a step toward a healthier you. By utilizing small, simple, practical, effective changes, you can begin to move toward a better quality of life, more energy, a more sound mind, and a deeper relationship with Jesus and those in your community, family and workplace.
The physical, spiritual and mental aspects of our existence are all of equal importance and value. Each influences the other. When we are physically ill, we can fall into depression which can lead to isolation from the God who loves us. When we are tired or hungry, lonely or afraid, we are more open to spiritual attack, more vulnerable to temptation. Unconfessed sin and unresolved anger can manifest itself physically in fatigue, pain and other illnesses.
Taking a holistic approach to dealing with wellness can have better outcomes and more long-term results. Pills, potions, diets, and gimmicks may work in the short term but they don’t help us face the real issues that cause our health problems. Caring for our being as God has instructed us in his Word and using solid, scientifically sound health and medical information to improve our health will result in healthier lives and glory for our Father in heaven.
