from His Princess, Love Letters From Your King by Sheri Rose Shepherd
My Princess ... Take Care of Your Temple
My love, you are My special treasure. You are My royal temple,
and I---your King---dwell within you. I created you to be a royal, holy
place where My Holy Spirit lives. I want you to be a glorious, shining
example of My handiwork for the entire world to see. Although your eternal
King resides in you, your body is still in need of rest. Take time for
yourself; your mental and spiritual health depend on it. Your're not being
selfish by doing this, so don't let others make you feel guilty about your
decision. My princess, you and I will work in complete harmony with a
divine purpose and a royal commission---to touch the hearts of those around
you. In your quiet times, My precious one, come into My presence, and let
Me refresh your temple with My spiritual strength. It is My good pleasure
to give you all you need.
Your King and your Caretaker
I read this today and just had to share it. Sometimes, well lots of times, I think of my body more in terms of what kind of outer shape I'm in. When I think of it in terms of that God resides there...it's His temple... it just gives me so much more purpose.
Let's make it a goal this week to take great care of our bodies, God's temple.
Stay Sweet and Beautiful:)
