“You make known to me the path of life; you fill me with joy in your presence. (Psalm 6:11)
I saw this Facebook post by someone I follow on Instagram as a health enthusiast:
I am exactly where I need to be. In every aspect of life –
physically, spiritually, mentally, emotionally.
(by Erin Parekh)
It hit me. Maybe what she said is something I should ask – of God.

If I had asked this question a couple of years ago, I wouldn’t have been so sure. In many ways, God did me a favor when He allowed an MS diagnosis and the subsequent cancer discovery.

You will be like a well-watered garden,
like an ever-flowing spring. (Isaiah 58:11)
Mental and emotional stability seem to align automatically when you follow the Lord in a lifestyle of health – natural by-products, so to speak. As I pondered this post, I wondered how you would answer the question I posed to God about myself.
Can you be honest with Him about all these areas and listen to what He says? What He might want you to do? Areas He may want you to address? Let the Holy Spirit be your guide.

I pray you get it straight with the Lord today. You deserve the honesty that these areas will bring. God loves you and wants always the exact best for you. His exact best for you. So, what do you say?
Because He lives~
Are we where He desires us to be in our
