The Healthy Pastor: Take Back Your Power

51vgqldEQML“I’m sure you have experienced circumstances in your life that can help you justify the condition you are in. Most of us have. But playing the victim is the easy way out. At some point, you have to make a decision to step up and say, ‘This is my life and my health. I am the only one who controls what goes in my mouth. I will not give anyone else or any unfavorable circumstances that much power in my life any longer.’

Take ownership of your actions, seek out some wise counsel if you need to and look to God for the strength to help you make essential changes in your life. It’s time to break Satan’s hold and move into victory.”

– Nelson Searcy, Steve Reynolds & Jennifer Dykes Henson
