Anyone that reads my articles know that I view overall optimum health to be composed of three different areas:
*** Physical Health - the body
*** Mental Health - the mind
*** Spiritual Health - the soul
Last evening, I was at a local library with my grandson. I have to be attentive to him because he will put on earphones, watch funny situations, and laugh heartily. Some adults laugh with him. Others are using computers for job searches. Also, a girl that attends school with him is often at the library, and they interact with each other.
I was sitting at a desk doing research so that I could compose future articles. When my phone would ring, I would walk outside to speak so that I wouldn't disturb others. As I re-entered the library, I mistakenly sat down at the wrong desk, realized what I had done, and moved to my desk.
A tall gentleman approached me and began to talk to me. At first, I totally misinterpreted what he was saying. He is from Kenya and is attending the University of Kentucky. His comment was that I must be studying something as difficult as he was studying because he noticed how hard I was concentrating.
When I asked what he studies at UK, he said, "I study medicine." I then explained that I was a RN, no longer worked actively in the field, and write articles on the internet. He wanted me to write down how he could get to my web-site. When I told him that it possibly wouldn't be what he expected to see, he stated that he is a Christian and attends Southland Christian Church.
As I turned around to return to my desk, it was almost as if God was smacking me on the head. To grow spiritually, I need to study the Bible just as intently as I studied the books in nursing school.
When I was a child, the only Bible that I had was a King James Version. Today, there are numerous versions that are composed in such at way that they are more easily interpreted by the reader. Even though I memorized verses in the King James Version, I now prefer to use the New King James Version.
My grandson likes for me to read to him at night as he falls asleep. The Bible that I purchased for him as a Christmas gift is Max Lucado's Daily Devotional Bible with my grandson's name engraved on the front. He really likes that feature. I purchased it at a Christian Book Store in the Fayette Mall area.
There are numerous versions of the Bible that are available for consumers. Below I will list three:
*** Contemporary English Version
*** English Standard Version
*** International Children's Bible
If you are looking for a local church to attend that offers numerous Bible study sessions, I would like to cordially invite you to attend the church that I attend. Consolidated Baptist is located at 1625 Russell Cave Road in Lexington. If you truly want to know what the Word of God says, you definitely will enjoy Consolidated Baptist!
