Your Hope-Filled Perspective with Dr. Michelle Bengtson podcast

Dec 30, 2021

Episode Summary:

In this episode, we’re talking about the power of forgiveness in health and healing. Our guest is Wendie Pett, who is passionate about motivating people to make fitness and good nutrition part of their daily routine. Her goal is to help others get healthy and healed so they can fulfill their God-given mission.

Quotables from the episode:

  • We can’t show up to only be physically fit, but our mind must be fit as well.
  • We often tell ourselves an old story that no longer serves us well.
  • Forgiveness is the key that unlocks the lock to improving our health and wellbeing.
  • We often look to fill a void that only Jesus can fill.
  • Fear of change or feeling vulnerable often holds people back from becoming healthy and whole. We have to dispel the lies we tell ourselves.
  • Be intentional about moving throughout the day. Your body is your best gym.

Scripture References:

  • Ephesians 4:31-32 NLT “Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.”
  • 2 Corinthians 5:17 This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
