Jesus in Nazareth | Luke 4:16-21

Today's Bible study has brought me to the book of Luke 4:16-21.   Luke 4:16-21 He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up.  As usual, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath day and stood up to read.  The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to Him, and unrolling the scroll, He found the place where it was written: The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor.  He has sent Me to proclaim freedom to the captives ad … [Read More...]

Keeping the Sabbath

Keeping the Sabbath day holy is one of the "Ten Commandments" (number four to be exact) but perhaps one of the most neglected.  Compassion for God's people poured over me today as I sat in a filled church this morning (Sunday), because I can't help to think that the Christian church as a whole is missing the mark in this regard.  God loves His people so much and has so much more for them than just Sunday morning "worship."  True worship is a way of life, not an upbeat praise song.  And I often … [Read More...]

The Book of Ruth – Bible Study

The desire of my heart on this snowy Shabbat was to study the Book of Ruth.  This is the story of a kinsmen redeemer, a picture of our own kinsmen redeemer, Jesus Christ.  Here are some of the things that I've learned from today's Bible study. Bible Study on the Book of Ruth Chapter One:  Famine In the first few verses of this book, we learn that there was a famine in the land of Judah.  This famine drove a man named Elimelech and his wife Naomi, along with their two … [Read More...]

The Vision.

Everyone is searching for something. But, we often fill our time and waste our energy with junk that the world is selling. The media assaults women, young and old, into believing they are too fat, too ugly, too busy, or too unworthy of health, wholeness, and joy. Most recently the media is pushing women to embrace the extremes, even glorifying “plus-sized models,” in place of healthy, whole and naturally beautiful women. Is anyone else upset by this?

It cannot be denied that women seek beauty and wholeness. The boom of health, fitness, beauty, and food blogs alone over the past three years can vouch for that! Let’s face it: we are obsessed with control and seeking beauty. And if we don’t see ourselves as beautiful enough, we justify it ourselves through our busyness, budget, family, job, stress level, etc., etc.

I had yet to find a food blog or website focused not only on health and fitness tips, but on the wholeness offered by Jesus, Yeshua. True, many alluded to the need for a spiritual wholeness or spiritual connectedness, but I’m not talking about the emptiness of blanket meditation, yoga, zen, buddhist, earth-worshiping spirituality. I’m talking about our Messiah!

Yeshua said, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry. And whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35

Healthy, whole living cannot be achieved through diet and exercise alone, but needs to center around Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Every other lifestyle decision or healthy choice is second (even third) to honoring Christ and getting to know Him better in our day-to-day. We do this through

quiet prayer,

scripture study,

and fellowship with other believers.

 

Only then can we achieve the wholeness most are searching for through diet, relaxation, and exercise.

The vision of To Eat Pray Love is to offer a platform for women to share healthy recipes, health and fitness tips, bible study, prayer requests and prayer for each other, words of encouragement, and personal testimony.
