Glorifying My Body for God




"Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body." 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

I'm generally careful about what I eat. I avoid certain foods and drinks because I know they are unhealthy for me. But at the same time, I'm not always so careful about how much I eat. With the kids being home for the summer, I've gobbled down their snacks and leftovers, in addition to my own meals. I'm ashamed to admit I've gained some weight these past two months.

I know gluttony is a sin. Food should be used as nourishment for my body, not as a garbage disposal or boredom fixer. Even so, I'm overeating and not exercising. While yes, I am constantly busy caring for the kids and finishing the daily housework, I'm not actually strengthening and toning my muscles. Nor am I moving enough to increase my heart rate.

I'm asking God to help me control my calorie intake along with giving me the desire to effectively burn calories. My body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, and I need to glorify Him with it. It's not my own and it was bought at a price. When I sacrifice my own desires for His desires, in the end, I will reap the benefits.
