My son, pay attention to what I say; turn your ear to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body.” (Proverbs 4:20-22)
When I was recently diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment, I struggled with the diagnosis for a short period. Unfortunately, I sustained a concussion in 2009, and my recent diagnosis is a long-term side effect.
Some of the recommendations for my Brain health were to exercise, read, keep blood pressure in check, utilize brain games, quizzes and do crossword to help slow down the progression of cognitive function.
“Do not be anxious about anything but in every situation by prayer and petition with thanksgiving; and present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus.”
Sister Copeland never fails to send me specific devotions at the right time. A couple of days ago she sent “God will come through for you!” I believe it! Do you? “Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.” (3 John 1:2)
Philippians 4:6-7 is very comforting. I follow physicians’ recommendations because God allow them to attain education, knowledge and experience to care for the temple of the Holy Spirit. However, my spiritual focus is eating more daily biblical food to nourish not only my brain and body, but for my soul which is more important.
