Experience 7 areas of your life more abundantly

Are you being pulled in so many different directions that you don't know where to start? 

Find the freedom that comes with living life more abundantly.
 
For those of you who do not know me, my name is Paula Behrens and I have served as a pastor in the church for over 20 years. I have just recently retired from the pulpit and am now serving in a different way – helping people find whole-self wellness: Joy, Balance and Divine Peace. Currently I’m focusing on incorporating the gift of anointing into my daily quiet time and sharing that with others.

Jesus says: “I come that [those who choose to follow Me] may have Life and have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). When Jesus says this… ultimately, what He’s talking about is everlasting life (life with God forever… life after this life). But I am convinced that Jesus is also concerned with the quality of our lives as we live it now from day-to-day on this earth.

The Adoration of the Magi - Biblical Oils

ARE ESSENTIAL OILS BIBLICAL?

I wanted to address a question I get fairly often today as a pastor, and that is: Are essential oils biblical? To answer that question, I will use a couple of references. One, of course is the Bible and the other is a book by an amazing man, David Stewart, PHD, titled: Healing Oils of the Bible. And his book, if you haven’t read it, can be easily found on Amazon and/or other bookstores.

Healing Oils of the Bible
First, I want to tell you a little bit about the beautiful biblical painting. When you examine it closely you will see that there are three incense censers that were used to get the essential oils into the air for aromatic use. The original painting depicts the historical scene of Mary, Joseph, the baby Jesus and three wise men. Stewart adapted the cover of his book from a portion of this painting by the Italian master, Carlo Dolci (1616-1686), entitled “The Adoration of the Magi.” So that the details could be seen more easily, Stewart chose to include only two of the wise men, with a note stating that there was a third wise man just off to the right. Dolci was one of the most famous artists in his day. He painted many religious scenes and was a master of detail.
