Fifty-six days seemed like a long time for a health program, until I began working through the book.
The Wellness Revelation, (by Alisa Keeton, founder of Revelation Wellness, published by Tyndale House Publishers, Inc., 245 pages), is not just another get-healthy book. It is a two month transformation in the way you think, act, feel, eat, move … The three requirements are to 1) show up, 2) Do the work, 3) Be real. This plan can be done with the book, with a church body or with a trained Revelation Wellness instructor.
Some of the basics of the program are similar to others I have worked through including moving/exercise, keeping track of what I eat and challenging myself. But this program is different in the approach: gentle, slow, thoughtful, prayerful. It also contains the elements of response, renewal, relating and reciprocating.
This is not a complete review. This is merely part one of a fuller review at the end of 56 days. I feel this book deserves my complete immersion into the program.
So far I have realized on thing, like I’m coming out of the dark green fog of self-sufficiency and pride: It’s not about me doing more. It’s not about me getting better. It’s about me letting go, letting go and not adding to God’s perfect grace. It’s about accepting myself for who God says I am.
God takes control as I release it.
See you in a few months, DV.
