I feel very honored to be asked by Better Me Tribe to blog on the spiritual aspect of life. This is a very important part to living a full and balanced life during our short time on this earth. I will do my very best to articulate the wisdom to you I have learned by writing this blog. I trust you will enjoy this journey as much as I have, and enjoy the full and abundant life that God promises.
It is best to start with the basics. Better Me Tribe is about finding the better you so let’s first breakdown what makes you YOU. First of all we consist of three parts which are mind, body and spirit. Have you ever heard that we are created in Gods image? We are a triune being like God and can have His likeness and His character traits. Genesis 1:27 says: “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” You see God also has three distinct parts; the Father, the Son and the Spirit. 1 John 5:7 says: “For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.” Isn’t that interesting that we are so similar as the one who created us? Wouldn’t you think that it is safe to say all parts must be strengthened daily in order to fully thrive? If we strengthen our minds and not our bodies the mind will not function to its fullest and eventually bring death to both mind and body. If the spirit remains broken or dead both mind and body will die. So we could easily say that exercise strengthens the body, using the mind and memory exercises strengthen the mind. But what strengthens the spirit? This is the very area we plan to spend a bit of time together, and if you have read this far I would gather that you are very interested in taking life to the next level.
Congratulations on coming this far you are taking the next step. Every journey begins with the first step. What is the first step then? Well, it is simply FAITH. The spirit works on a level beyond the mind and body. It lives forever where the others do not. The spiritual realm is unseen openly by the ordinary five senses and can work outside of them. You see the world we see is only the outcomes and results of the unseen world. Hard to believe but it is true. We are living in the today that our choices have created in the past. This is where faith comes in. Faith is the connection that we have with the spiritual world, and the stronger the faith, the stronger the spirit. The spirit thrives on faith in the truth. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”- Hebrews 11:1. Hebrews says that faith is the substance of the things we hope for, so as we hope and incorporate faith and more things come to fruition then we are given more evidence. More evidence means faith is ready to grow. It is the understanding that there is so much more than we can see. So much more to come and knowing that it is yours freely to take. So how do we take the faith to the next level? We have to begin at the first level. What’s the first level? Search for the truth. The very fact that you begin searching for truth is faith! Begin exercising your faith to bring the spirit alive. Let’s just say the search for the truth of who you really are begins with exercising your faith. Would you be willing to take the journey with me? Let’s bring our spirits to life starting with faith! This is where the power has been given to change our world!
