Proverbs 14 — Mission City Challenge

peaceful heart

30 A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body;
    jealousy is like cancer in the bones ~ Proverbs 14;30

This is so true and probably deeper than most of us even realize. A man or woman with a heart that is divided, without peace, troubled and broken usually do not take care of their bodies. You can find so many in poor health, overweight, bad hearts, high blood pressure, and a multitude of different medical problems trying to mask the pain.

I have found in my life and in the lives of many others that when your heart is full and healthy, satisfied and has purpose the body falls into follow. What is in your heart dictates what is in your mind and what flows in and out of your body.

And the second part of this is “Jealousy is like a cancer in the bones” Oh man that’s so true — jealousy stems out of an unhealthy heart, Matthew 15:18
 – But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man ‘unclean.’ It will drive a man or women to extreme’s in life. A very sad way to live a life that is usually troublesome till death….. BUT you DO NOT have to live this way!!!!

John 14:27 – 
“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.

Philippians 4:7
 – Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

Now go out and have an EPIC day today!!!!
