For whatever it is worth I decided to put in writing what I have said to several of our members. Take time to be Joyful & Happy, your health depends on it.
Maintaining a healthy, infection free body means each of us must find an appropriate way to deal with all the emotional upset humanity is facing each day. Over the past few months I have had to counsel several of our female members through their first painful bladder infections. The cases of hives or other skin outbreaks is also on the rise. The reason for an increase in these issues is not a surprise. The whole body is impacted, becomes acid, when the strong negative emotions of anger, hate, or fear are allowed to flow through us. Strong negative reactions when allowed to rule the heart and mind equate to drinking poison.
“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.”Proverbs 17:22
The impact of all this societal upset can have a powerful and hurtful effect on our physical health. An emotional gut punch, or a strong burst of anger will effectively wipe out your immune system. To state this as plainly as possible, you will have no ability to fight off any invaders that choose to enter your body. Whatever is floating around will find a welcoming home in your body.
The immune system is not the only one effected by strong negative emotional upset. For women, the hormone levels are depleted, is some cases completely wiped out. Hormonal imbalance will bring on hot flashes, irregular cycles, mood swings, ect. Abnormal weight gain can also be brought on when the body’s hormone levels are compromised.
Our reaction to the events surrounding our lives is a choice we can and should control. Choosing to surrender to anger or fear is the same as choosing to drink a glass of slow acting poison. The Father has promised to never leave or forsake His children. Rest in the truth that is His love for you. The world may fall apart but the child of the Father need never be afraid or angry. His never failing love is your protection, He has your back, front, and both sides. You are surrounded, safe, secure, all is well.
