Saturday, April 13: Start a New Healthy Habit!
Today’s challenge is to start a new healthy habit. This is something that all of us need, so what is the first thing that comes to your mind?
Some of us might be thinking about our physical health, such as physical exercise, a healthier diet, or stopping that worst habit. Or maybe we’re thinking about our mental health, such as reading good books, interacting less with social media, or removing junk entertainment. Or we might be considering improvement of our emotional health by loving on our beloved, spending time with friends and family, or maintaining a positive attitude.Hopefully all of us are at least thinking about one new healthy habit for our spirit, such as regular prayers, bible reading, or volunteering in a church or ministry activity.
Why is today’s challenge important? Because all of us need to strive to become healthier.There’s plenty of people who haven’t participated in “giving up something for Lent”, so if that’s you, consider doing it now and continuing it until Easter. Others of us started some healthy habits at the beginning of Lent, but then tripped up along the way. If that happened to you, take another jump at it and continue it every day until Easter.Others of us have been successful sincewe began at the start of the Lenten season, so if that’s you, simply add one more to your list today.
Today is the perfect day to start something healthy.Let’s say a prayer and thank God for all the blessings He has already provided, then let’s start a new healthy habit today!
“And so, dear brothers and sisters,I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” (Romans 12:1-2, NLT).
