Heart Disease- Body, Mind & Spirit

With the physical heart, we love to dream, feel heartache, love, die.

With the physical heart, the vessels can be regenerated, rerouted to create a path for healthy blood flow and heal the areas that need repair.

Our physical heart has divided chambers to improve the efficiency of blood flow to our organs.

With the Spiritual heart we: "Believe" and it's with our whole heart we are called to Love God.

For the spiritual heart, God has promised this in Ezekiel 36:26

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone (hardness, unwillingness to change, even for our good) out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh (softness, pliability, willingness to change by God’s grace, to be better and to love ourselves and others as God loves us).

HEART HEALTH – BODY, MIND, and SPIRIT 

Dr. Kara Davis is a board-certified physician of internal medicine and a pastor’s wife. 
The chance of losing your life to heart disease is 1 in 5. That’s greater than the chance of dying in a plane crash or a getting struck by lightning. According to studies, in the U.S., heart disease ends 600,000 lives each year and is the #1 cause of death. Dr. Kara Davis is a board-certified physician of internal medicine and a pastor’s wife. On many levels, she has seen how good and bad choices can affect overall heart health – spirit, mind and body. Our physical health is intricately linked to our spiritual, mental and emotional health. Dr. Kara says, “A positive or negative attitude has a strong influence on heart health. In scores of studies examining the impact…all the research that identifies a connection between a pessimistic disposition and coronary illness – the data is far too extensive.”
In Proverbs 4:20-23 (NIV), King Solomon tells his son to guard his heart, for it is the wellspring of life. Solomon was primarily talking about the figurative heart – the “soul” or “spirit.” However, he points an additional blessing, noting that wisdom will impart “health to a man’s whole body.” Dr. Kara says just as God’s Word blesses our spirit, soul, and body – we must look at the concept of wholeness the way God sees it. Often we tend to look at ourselves as separate parts that fit together to make one unit, like a jigsaw puzzle. With that mindset, we approach our health in a disjointed way. We are created by these separate parts that are inseparable. What affects one part of our being (spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical) will affect our whole being.
