Bible Truth # 1.  We are temples of the Holy Spirit.  1 Cor 6:19-20.

Key words — Balance, Foundation, Temple, Build, Up, Open, Focus

PERSONALIZED CONFESSIONIn Jesus’ name, I ask my Heavenly Father to help me take better care of my body.  I open myself to the Spirit of the Living God to help me focus on that choice.  I believe God created me and knows how to build up my temple (body) and I believe with all my heart He will help me to do it.  Jesus is my foundation and the balance I need in my life. I dedicate this I AM exercise pattern to my Creator; thanking Him, praising Him, and worshipping Him for all I am and all He is helping me to become.
