Well, we’ve reached the end of the “wellness is worth it” series! Thank you SO much for joining me over the past few weeks. As we wrap up, I want to leave you with this: don’t make the mistake of underestimating your resources!

never underestimate your resources

You have the same access I do to a God that delights in giving beauty for ashes, joy for mourning, and peace for pain. He knows all about you and loves you dearly. He tells us: “[God] who did not spare His own Son but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also with Him graciously give us all things?” (Romans 8:32)

I hope you’ll follow the tips for supporting your physical health. And, I hope you’ll learn from my journey and apply the keys to emotional wellness we’ve talked about. But, most of all, I pray you’ll ask the One who made your heart, to mend your heart. Because your physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness is absolutely worth it!

Have you felt crummy for a really long time? Is your heart broken because of a relationship that has fallen apart? Are you tired of being tired all the time? Are you discouraged because it feels like, whatever you do, it’s never enough?

I know I don’t know your circumstances. But, I know it’s no accident that you are reading this. The fact that you’ve followed along to the end tells me that you are a strong person and there’s still at least a flicker of hope alive in you. Hopefully I’ve shared some things that sparked your interest and gave you some things to think about. I pray you have renewed hope that, regardless of what or who has hurt you in the past, your heart CAN mend. Never underestimate your resources!

As you think about where you are today and where you want to be tomorrow, think about this quote by Ann Voskamp:

“You don’t need to be perfect. You need to simply feel His perfect love. You don’t need to be in control. You need to simply be in Christ. You don’t need to be more because He is all you need.”

I’ve created this playlist on YouTube, sort of a soundtrack for healing. I hope you’ll enjoy it and let these songs fall around your shoulders like a warm blanket on a frosty morning. I listen in whenever I’m feeling fragile and need to be reminded that somehow, in some way, God has a plan for my life and it is a good one, because He is a good God. Enjoy!
