In today's culture living a healthy life style is striving to be abnormally skinny or crash diet to become thin and "healthy" looking. Not many take a step back to actually view the miracle that is our bodies and to appreciate what our bodies are really capable of doing for us.
Your Body is Divine....
WIth 206 sturdy bones,
more than 650 dynamic muscles,
12 perfectly synchronized organ systems,
and over 10,000,000,000,00(trillion) life-giving human cells.
Your Body is Miraculous...
Every day your heart beats over 103,000 times,
your respiratory system powers 25,920 breaths,
your body produces a consistent 98.6 degress of heat,
and your body produces almost 200 billion new blood cells each day.
And that's just the Beginning....
Every day your mind, body, and spirit work together to give you the fortitude to fulfill family, church,work, and community obligations. You take good care of everyone else; it's time to take care of you.
Make a promise to yourself - right now - that you will appreciate your body as the precious gift from God it was meant to be. Satan is jealous of your physical body because he doesn't have one - and he'll continually try to seduce you to abuse, neglect, and despise yours. Don't let him.
