In Part 1 of this article, “6 Keys to Living a Healthy, Happy Life,” you learned the first three keys. If you missed that article, go back and read it here [link to http://bit.ly/1FqQVnK ]. Now, let’s continue learning the keys to a successful, fulfilling and healthy life.
Key #4 to Living a Healthy, Happy Life: Keep God’s Word
Proverbs 3:1-2 clearly explains the importance of this key. It says: “My son, forget not my law or teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments; for length of days and years of life [worth living] and tranquility [inward and outward and continuing through old age till death], these shall they add to you” (The Amplified Bible). If you want to live a life of peace and tranquility even when the whole world around you is falling apart, then you must follow God’s Word.
Key #5 to Living a Healthy, Happy Life: Receive Forgiveness
First John 1:9 says, “But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.” If you have made mistakes—and everyone has!—then ask God for forgiveness and receive that which is available to you by the blood of Jesus. Then change your ways. Doing so allows you to take what belongs to you in Christ…which is healing, health and well-being.
Key #6 to Living a Healthy, Happy Life: Forgive
Matthew 6:15 says, “But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.” This scripture makes it clear that you need to forgive those who have sinned against you. It’s the only way that you can get free from the pain and anger that can keep you bound to your past.
You can live the healthy, happy life you were born to live. God ordained it. Jesus paid for it. And by remembering these six keys, you can have it!
