Wellness Challenge - Day 2

Congratulation! You survived Day 1 and now it is onto Day 2!  Drink down that tall glass of water and let’s get started!

Do you ever feel like when you try to do good, you are suddenly attacked?  I can assure you that at some point during this challenge the devil is going to try to make you lose your passion to live a life of wellness.  He is going to try to magnify every little insecurity you have, spewing lies of “you're not good enough or worth it” and reminding you of every time you have failed before.  Fear, anxiety, and worry will all be yelling at you, but those are schemes of the devil.   We must arm ourselves and be prepared against the devils attacks!

ANOINT: Apply White Angelica essential oil blend on your hands and rub it down your crown, behind the ears, down your neck, and out across your shoulders like angels wings.

***White Angelica is a unique blend of Bergamot, Geranium, Myrrh, Sandalwood, Rosewood, Ylang Ylang, Spruce, Hyssop, Melissa, and Rose helps create a frequency field to ward off the bombardment of negative energy.  The aroma of this blends of oil may be a tremendous aid in times of mediation.***

STUDY: Read and re-read Ephesians 6.  

JOURNAL: We are going to try some journal art. I am certainly no artist, and you do not have to be either, but I think pictures are sometimes more powerful than words.  Draw yourself, and clothe yourself in the armor of God. Then draw the flaming arrows of the evil one coming towards you.  What might some of those arrows look like (i.e. worry, fear, etc.).

PRAY: “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.” –Ephesians 6:18-20

SHARE:  If you have children in the home with you, share your drawing with them.  Read Ephesians 6 to them and help them make their own drawing.  For older children you may even get a glimpse into ways they are being attacked and know how you can direct your prayers for them.  Would you also consider sharing with our group, either on the Facebook page or Instagram tag #WellnessChallengeArmor.

Day 2 Checklist:
✔️Bible Study, Journal, Pray
✔️Drink 3+ glasses of water (the goal we are working towards is to drink half of your body weight in ounces daily)
✔️NingXia Red shot
✔10 minute walk
✔️”Clean” Dinner

So let's talk about dinner for a minute.  The goal is to consume a whole foods meal that is nutrient dense and free of processed foods, preservatives, dyes, processed sugar (honey and maple syrup in moderation – let's not pretend that we are Buddy from the movie “Elf”!).  Focus on non-GMO, whole foods. This could be as simple as baked chicken seasoned with Rosemary, rice tossed with broccoli, and a hearty salad.  We will be sharing recipes and ideas on our ptivate facebook group.
