This past month I have been practicing a balance between work, home, and building a business. My role at work has developed into a leadership role. My health and wellness business will be starting, and the kids will be back to school soon. Needless to say I need my well being to be balance.
Wellness is the glue that keeps life together. I love to keep my focus on God's path for life.
Please note I’m about to embark on a journey in the Bible. This is my opinion only. There is no one size fits all for a balance of health and wellness. This is just one of many ways I can balance my life.
I decided to check out bible plans on YouVersion and found the Bible X: The Wisdom books. This plan reviews four books, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Job. Listed below is a high-level summary of each book. Psalms - a book of songs of praises, lament, and thanksgiving It read like it was a door opening for my soul to recognize God. There are so many expressed emotions through songs.The songs are related to positive or negative life changes we, as people, may go through. At the end of it all, we end up giving God thanks.
Proverbs - explanation of foolish vs. wisdom These are examples of the day-to-day decisions we have to make in life. We control our environment, social network, and even how we physically take care of our bodies.
Ecclesiastes - teachers point of view on how everything is meaningless The moral of the book is to be content with what we have and enjoy it in moderation. We also need to understand our limits for our mental and physical.
Job - an example of a man who had it all and lost it with a blink of an eye Reading Job made me see him as an example of our friend of a friend. You know someone who always has a story to tell that sets an example of how you should or should not be. Job had everything in the world and lost it. He was Bill Gates rich or Steve Jobs rich.
After I read the books of the Bible I started thinking of my wellbeing. It made me realize we can lose everything we cherish. We can become physically weak and the mind can begin to break down. While we are going through the storm like Job, we can continue praising God. In the end, we may end up getting three times than what we started. Not because we asked for it but because we stayed focus on Him. He tests our faith with good and bad life changes. How does this equate to our wellness, you ask?
