is self care acceptable in Christianity

Is Self-Care Acceptable in Christianity?
Self-care is acceptable in Christianity because Jesus taught that the second great commandment is You shall love your neighbor as you love yourself. (Mark 12:31) Therefore just as we are expected to love others, we also have to love ourselves. 

Self-care is one way that we Christians can love ourselves. 

This self-care is simply spending time doing things that improve our well being. It can be divided into spiritual, emotional and physical self-care.


Physical self-care involves spending time doing activities that improve our physical well being. These include exercising regularly and eating healthy foods.   

Spiritual self-care entails spending time doing activities that nourish us spiritually. These can include reading the Bible, praying and singing Christian praise songs.

Emotional self-care involves spending time doing the activities that nourish us emotionally. These can include:
a. Engaging in hobbies that we enjoy - from knitting to reading and baking 
b. Releasing people have hurt us and reorganizing our lives to avoid those who persistently hurt us 
Is Self-Care Acceptable in Christianity




How Does a Christian Woman Take Care of Herself?
A Christian woman can take care of herself by scheduling time to do things that make her feel better physically, emotionally and spiritually. 

For example she can schedule time each day to read her Bible and pray so that she can improve her spiritual well being. 

She can schedule time each week to get a manicure and pedicure or prepare delicious meals for her family to make her feel better emotionally.  

She can also schedule 2 hours each week to exercise so that she can improve her physical well being.

By spending time taking care of herself physically, emotionally and spiritually, a Christian woman ensures that she is better able to help others physically, emotionally and spiritually. 

This is best exemplified by a woman who does not take care of herself physically and she ends us becoming sick and developing conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure and their complications like a stroke because of eating junk food and not exercising regularly. As a result of neglecting herself physically, this woman is not only unable to take care of herself physically, but she is also not able to take care of her loves ones.

Therefore Christian women and men should schedule time to take care of themselves spiritually, mentally and physically.

how does a Christian fight fear

How Does a Christian Fight Fear?
A Christian fights fear by following these steps:
1. Pray and ask God to help you stop being afraid.

After praying believe that God will help you deal with the issue that you are afraid of because faith in God is the antidote for fear.

For example if you are afraid of losing your job, pray and believe that God will handle your financial situation and you will stop being afraid of what your boss will do because you have confidence that God will take care of you even if you do not have a job.  

2. Go through your Bible and find Scriptures that negate the thing that you are afraid of and use these Bible verses as your Christian affirmations and meditations for fighting fear. 

One good Bible verse is God has not given me a spirit of fear. God has given me a spirit of power, of love and a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)

To fight fear with this Bible verse, speak it to yourself silently whenever the thought of the thing that you are afraid of crosses your mind. You can also confess it loudly to encourage yourself when you have to face the thing that you are afraid of.

how to prosper under oppression


How to Prosper Under Oppression?
A good answer for how to prosper under oppression can be gleaned from Judges chapter 6 when the Israelites were living under oppression. 

The Midianites, Amalekites and other people from the East would come and destroy the crops the Israelites had planted and as a result they were greatly impoverished. However, God was able to help them by using Gideon.

We can therefore learn how to prosper under oppression by doing what they did:  
1. Pray 
Pray and ask God to remove the oppression because The Israelites cried out to God because of the Midianites. (Judges 6:7)


2. Confess your Sins 
Confess your sins because in response to their cries, God told them through a prophet, "I told you I am the Lord your God and you should not fear the gods of the Amorites in whose land you live but you have not obeyed Me." (Judges 6:10)

3. Do your Best 
Do the best that you can under your oppressive circumstances. Emulate Gideon whose God's Angel called A mighty man of valor (Judges 6:12) because he found him threshing wheat in a winepress instead of the threshing floor so that he could hide it from the Midianites. To understand the difference of those conditions read this article

Therefore, do not complain or decide to wait for the ideal condition so that you can begin working towards your prosperity. Begin doing what you can do in the midst of the hard, tough, restricting and oppressive circumstances like those of the winepress. 


4. Give God an Offering 
Gideon prepared A young goat and bread from an ephah of flour and brought them to God's Angel. (Judges 6:19)

Therefore give money to a Christian ministry that is serving God. 

Understand that giving God a young goat (which had the potential to give birth to other goats) and bread made from an ephah of flour which is equivalent to 5.9 gallons or 22 liters, was a sacrificial offering. This is due to the fact that such a large amount of flour and the goat were not easy to come by because when the Midianites came, they Would not leave any sustenance or ox or donkeys for the Israelites. (Judges 6:4) 

So give God a sacrificial seed.

How to Prosper Under Oppression


5. Build God an Altar 
Gideon built an altar for God and called it Jehovah Shalom which means The Lord Is Peace. (Judges 6:24) 

God also told him to tear down his father's Baal altar and the wooden image that had been erected beside it and build an altar for God on top of it. (Judges 6:25-26)

Therefore build an altar for God in your home. Read this article to learn some more. 

In addition, destroy the altars to false gods that have been built around your region. If you cannot destroy them physically, destroy them spiritually For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal. But they are mighty through God for the pulling down of strongholds. (2 Corinthians 10:4) These weapons are salvation, righteousness, truth, the Gospel, faith and the Word of God. 

To destroy these altars to false gods, first get saved by saying with your mouth that "Jesus is Lord" and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead when He died for our sins and you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)

Ensure that you speak the truth and do the right thing. Read your Bible and speak the Word of God over the area with the false altars since The Word of God is the Sword of the Spirit. (Ephesians 6:17)

For example you can pray, God has given me authority over nations and kingdoms to root out, to pull down, to destroy, to throw down, to build and to plant. (Jeremiah 1:10) 

I therefore plead the Blood of Jesus and root out, pull down, destroy and throw down these altars build to false gods. 

I build and plant an altar to the one true God, Jehovah Shalom, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
