A House Divided against itself... can not stand

Mark 3:25 (New International Version)

25If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

Mark 7:20 (The Living Bible)
Jesus said "It is the thought life that pollutes".

As one lamp serves to dispel a thousand years of darkness, so one flash of wisdom destroys ten thousand years of ignorance
- Hui-Neng

SEE the Light!

John 8:12
 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.

We are, our own enemy.  We are born "carnal" with an earthy life,
but but hold within us a "spirit" that has eternal life.

The bridge between our Carnal and Spiritual being is our Mind.  This creates a BALANCE!

Genesis 2:7 


7 the LORD God formed the man  from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.

We are a "body" but we are also a  "spirit" .... 
 OUR mind (thoughts).... is what connects (like a bridge) our Body and our Spirit.   OUR WILL (comes out of our thoughts)  is our choice to create the Harmony between our Spirit and our Body or choose (yes, it's our choice) disharmony.

EVERY decision we make is a product of our thoughts.  
EVERY decision we make is rooted in our desires.
EVERY desire we have comes from our heart
Our heart is the center of our home (body) it is our life...

When what our body wants something that our spirit knows is wrong than we are divided.   This is when our mind (our "will") has to make the decision.  Do we follow the desire of our body... or the wisdom of the spirit... or  
There is no "or".  WE make a decision every moment of our day to
act on what our BODY say's it desires or or Spirit say's it desires.

Harmony in our home (inside us) is when our Body and Spirit sing the same song of desire.

It is our MIND - "thoughts" that conduct 
the harmony between our Body and our Spirit. 

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Ok,   let's see if I have this ...

We are created by God with a Body and a Spirit... 
Our MIND is the Master conductor that creates the
harmony of our 
 body and spirit  

The battle then is in our mind, in our thoughts....

MY thoughts  / My Desires


Where is my DESIRE?
My DESIRE to be HEALTHY, WELL  full of love and laughter.  

To make choices today that feed my SPIRIT, MIND and BODY. 
To see the world through the EYE's and EAR's of Christ.

TO CENTER myself and desires in Pleasing CHRIST.

TODAY:  I WILL make choices that reflect my desire to be a LIGHT in this world.
I will take care of this body, my home, HIS Temple.  I will not defile it with NON nutritional foods.  I will not be lazy but active, exercising my heart, muscles and mind.

I WILL MAKE the right choices today that bring my body and spirit HARMONY!

MY thoughts will be centered in the the WORD of God 
I will make His will, my will
 His WORD is my strength to do His Will

Salute!  To your Health and Wellness

Your will Lord, not mine be done today
