For many of us, with the new year comes our renewed desire to put more energy into caring for our spiritual lives. We want to pray more, read the Bible more, get closer to God, and experience a greater sense of spiritual growth. We want lasting change but struggle to find change and keep change.
I do believe that God can change any person from the inside out but the question remains what explanation do we have for people who have faith in Him but are still struggling to see power and victory in our lives?
Today I’m joined by Alisa Keeton, health and wellness extraordinaire. Alisa is the founder of Revelation Wellness — a 501C3 non-profit ministry dedicated to educating and inspiring people to live healthy and whole lives in Christ. I spent time with Alisa on her podcast recently and the conversation was so good I wanted to keep talking to her and invited her to join me on mine. Alisa and I discuss why lasting change is hard to come by and what kind of mindset is necessary in order to truly experience it — particularly as it relates to growing in our faith.
Lasting change of any kind, especially in our spiritual lives, starts and ends in the mind. Alisa gets down and dirty with the physiological design of our brains, the reasons change is hard, and the choices we all have to make to be kind to our bodies and our souls.
While we know that God’s love transforms, we wrestle with our part in accepting His love and allowing it to change how we process our individual realities.
When we choose to prioritize our faith in order to renew our mind (Romans 12:2), it changes the way we think and that ultimately changes the way we live.
