Second, allow me to introduce you to Pearl!
The grittiness of life has helped shape Pearl. Her luster comes from layers of experience and HOPE from the beloved Word of God. Pearl has parented children with learning issues, has navigated the genepool of mental illness, and has dealt with marital conflict and sexual fulfillment issues. Pearl focuses on sexual intimacy and restoring waning female libido. She wishes to share HOPE with her beautiful readers to help them understand their men, marriage and sex. Swim on over to Pearl’s OysterBed where the water is fine!
So let’s give Pearl a big welcome to The Alabaster Jar because she wrote this post just for you!
OK, don’t hate me. But, I have to say a dirty 8 letter word…EXERCISE.
“And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will restore you himself and make you strong, firm and steadfast,” 1 Peter 5:10.
“Did you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own…You were bought with a price, therefore honor God with your bodies,” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20.
ULTIMATELY, I gained the ability to better serve the Lord. Exercise helped improve my marriage through more satisfying sexual desire and ability. Mr. Muscle and I can mentor a happy godly marriage to our children and the world.
- Exercise helped improve physical and mental health, so that I could look to the needs of others.
- Exercise is cheaper than prescription drugs for pain and depression.
- Exercise isn’t a cure-all, but it’s pretty darn close.
Do you need to make some lifestyle changes, like me?
You CAN do this, I KNOW you can because the Lord will help you!!
PRAY about becoming healthy. Health is a healing balm and it is pleasing to God when you take care of His Temple. How many miracles of healing did Jesus bestow? Let the Holy Spirit partner with you in this journey. Exercise God’s Spirit. Tap into the self-control and diligence the Spirit can provide.
JUST MOVE, find your favorite (jazzercise, zumba, swimming, walking, biking, vigorous sex). Research states the type of exercise doesn’t matter to reap benefits. Consistency is important. START SLOW and work your way into it! A 10 minute walk each night for a week, 20 minutes the next week, etc.
(Disclaimer: Before beginning any exercise program, consult with your physician.)
Final Prayer for you, beautiful ladyfish:
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit,” Romans 15:13.
