“It will be healing to your body, and refreshment to your bones,” is one of my favorite verses in the Bible. What will be healing to your body, you might ask? Looking at the previous verse tells us. Proverbs 3:7 says, “Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and turn away from evil.” This proverb addresses our inner person, our heart, our roots.
I believe we were created to worship God. From the beginning of time, however, we chose to worship ourselves and lost our original purpose. We were wise in our own eyes and decided our way was better than God’s design. Our roots became dark and withered. We needed our roots restored! God’s son, Jesus Christ, came to earth to die for our broken hearts. He rose from the dead and conquered what ails our souls. He literally breathes new life into our roots when we turn to Him for forgiveness of sins. Love, peace and freedom replace shame, guilt and bondage. When we stop looking to ourselves for answers and seek our Creator, He lovingly brings healing spiritually, emotionally, and even physically.
In my journey towards greater health, restoring my spiritual roots has been the most significant. Restoring my sources for quality food has been the second most important. In America, the quest for quick, convenient meals has cost us dearly. We live fast, eat fast and forget to thank God and the farmer for growing our food. We often do not know where our food comes from, let alone what ingredients it contains. We have even replaced real food with combinations of chemicals that come in a package. Poor diet has caused rampant, chronic disease among young and old alike. It’s time to take responsibility for our own health. We need to restore our food roots too!
This blog is dedicated to restoring our spiritual roots and our food roots. I desire men, women, and children everywhere to experience God’s design for life and food. In my view, there is no greater way to live!
