Very soon we will be opening a nutrition and healthy living boutique. Preparations are already underway on the corner of 16th and Harvard in Tulsa. Watch for a grand opening announcement within the next few weeks. Our joy is to encourage people on their journey to health, to come alongside with hope to sustain the weary and inspiration for daily healthy living. The acronym “NATURE’S OWN”, which stands for “Nutrition, Attitude, Toxin removal, Undo the wrong, Rest and sleep, Exercise, Sunshine, Oxygen, Water, and again an emphasis on Nutrition”, helps shape our everyday approach to healthy living from a biblical perspective.
“Day by day these things I pray: to see you more clearly, love you more dearly, follow you more nearly. Day by day. . .day by day. . .”
You probably wouldn’t paint your face or body like this, but have you thought about what you may be painting your skin with?
When your pores are clogged by various creams, lotions, deodorants, and even some commercial soaps and makeup, the only way your body can cool itself is to force precious fluids out onto your skin to evaporate and cause a cooling effect. And when it is not compromised by what you put on it, your skin not only removes toxic waste from inside your body, but it also keeps bacteria and other bad stuff out. Help your skin keep the good stuff in and the bad stuff out of your body by not clogging your pores. Proper skin care is essential in healing and health.

We know how many seeds are in an apple, but only God knows how many apples are in a seed. We plant seeds of truth by spreading the gospel, as described in the parable of the sower in Matthew 13. Some seeds fall along the path and are snatched away. Some fall in rocky places where they are received with joy but have no root and soon wither. Some seeds fall among thorns where worries of this life choke them out. And some seeds fall on good soil where people hear the Word, understand it, retain it, and produce a crop. What places in your life are like valleys, mountains, or rough places that challenge your faith? Mountains are difficult challenges requiring endurance and perseverance. Valleys may be depressing events that lead to emotional fatigue, mental distress and physical exhaustion. In crooked places you don’t know which way to turn, you can’t see the path or discern the way. In rough places, like with illness and betrayal, the going gets tough; you can clearly see the way, but it is still very difficult to cope and keep going. When you hear the Word and understand it, you produce a crop yielding many times what was sown. Our job is to plant the seeds of truth. How many apples may be in the seeds you are planting and in the seeds from those apples in the future? Keep planting. Only God knows what the harvest will bring.
