Over time, science has explained more and more how our minds connect to the body. The impacts of emotions are seen physically through the nervous and immune systems. Therefore, good physical health and good emotional health and good spiritual health are all interconnected. This is reaffirmed in Proverbs 17:22 “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”
Even Jesus stated the importance of connection and health between the mind, body, and spirit as he warned his disciples: “Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak” (Matthew 26:41).
God creates our bodies, souls, and spirits for His glory. We should strive to honor God with our bodies, praise and magnify Him with our souls, and worship Him in spirit and truth.
Maintaining health between these three elements can be difficult, but coming together as a group can help us stay accountable and consistent. Grace Fellowship Church encourages this by hosting a faith-based yoga class. Body, Mind, and Spirit occurs every Tuesday night (5:30-6:45) and Wednesday morning (9:00-10:00) in the upstairs auditorium. You are invited to come connect with like-minded individuals as we pursue physical, mental, and spiritual wellness.
