JUICE IT – Part two – MARRIAGE

Here are the notes from this message.
“Marriage should be honored by all.”  Hebrews 13:4
 Husbands, go all out in your love for your wives, exactly as Christ did for the church—a love marked by giving, not getting. Christ’s love makes the church whole. His words evoke her beauty. Everything he does and says is designed to bring the best out of her, dressing her in dazzling white silk, radiant with holiness. And that is how husbands ought to love their wives. They’re really doing themselves a favor—since they’re already “one” in marriage. Ephesians 5:25-28 The message
Health Benefits Of The Mango

1.  Prevents Cancer: 
Research has shown antioxidant compounds in mango fruit have been found to protect against colon, breast, leukemia and prostate cancers. These compounds include quercetin, isoquercitrin, astragalin, fisetin, gallic acid and methylgallat, as well as the abundant enzymes.

2.  Lowers Cholesterol: 
The high levels of fiber, pectin and vitamin C help to lower serum cholesterol levels, specifically Low-Density Lipoprotein (the bad stuff).

3.  Clears the Skin: 
Can be used both internally and externally for the skin. Mangos help clear clogged pores and eliminate pimples.

4.  Improves Eye Health: 
One cup of sliced mangoes supplies 25 percent of the needed daily value of vitamin A, which promotes good eyesight and prevents night blindness and dry eyes.

5.  Alkalizes the Whole Body:

The tartaric acid, malic acid, and a trace of citric acid found in the fruit help to maintain the alkali reserve of the body.

6. May Help with Diabetes: 
Mango leaves help normalize insulin levels in the blood. The traditional home remedyinvolves boiling leaves in water, soaking through the night and then consuming the filtered decoction in the morning. Mango fruit also has a relatively low glycemic index (41-60) so moderate quantities will not spike your sugar levels.

7. Promotes Healthy Sex: 

Mangos are a great source of vitamin E. Even though the popular connection between sex drive and vitamin E was originally created by a mistaken generalization on rat studies, further research has shown balanced proper amounts (from whole foods) does help.

8. Improves Digestion: 
Papayas are not the only fruit that contain enzymes for breaking down protein. There are several fruits, including mangoes, which have this healthful quality. The fiber in mangos also helps digestion and elimination.

9. Helps Fight Heat Stroke:
Juicing the fruit from green mango and mixing with water and a sweetener helps to cool down the body and prevent harm from overheating. From an ayurvedic viewpoint, the reason people often get diuretic and exhausted when visiting equatorial climates is because the strong “sun energy” is burning up your body, particularly the muscles. The kidneys then become overloaded with the toxins from this process.

10. Boosts the Immune System:

The generous amounts of vitamin C and vitamin A in mangos, plus 25 different kinds of carotenoids keep your immune system healthy and strong.
 
Just as the mango injects the needed nutrients in our bodies there are some amazing ingredients in God’s words that will give life to your marriage.
Like three super foods we are going to look into three amazing ways to energize your marriage so we can squeeze the most out of it!
Here are three super foods for you marriage: – Thoughts/Words/Time
 
 
Cherish your spouse with your thoughts.
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—
if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”Philippians 4:8
 
* Choose thoughts that recognize your spouse’s high value.

“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:27

“So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself; for no one ever hated his own flesh,
but nourish- es and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church…”(Ephesians 5:28-29 NASB)
 
* Remain grateful by maintaining a mindset that it’s a privilege to be married to your spouse.
“Let your wife be a fountain of blessing for you. Rejoice in your wife all your life.” – Proverbs 5:18
 
 
Cherish your spouse with your words.
 
“Many couples have never learned the tremendous power of verbally affirming each other.”
“A good name is better than fine perfume, and the day of death better than the day of birth. It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting,
for death is the destiny of everyone; the living should take this to heart.”Ecclesiastes 7:1-2
 
“The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:21
 
“Our spouse will usually interpret our message based on our tone of voice, not the words we use.”
“Don’t you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body? But the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart,
and these defile them. For out of the heart come evil thoughts—murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. These are what defile a person;
but eating with unwashed hands does not defile them.”Matthew 15:17-20
Here are 4 practical ways you can honor your spouse with your words.
 
* First, offer regular, sincere compliments throughout the day.
“I liken you, my darling, to a mare harnessed to one of the chariots of Pharaoh. Your cheeks are beautiful with earrings, your neck with strings of jewels.
We will make you earrings of gold, studded with silver.”Song of Solomon 1:9-11
 
* Second, speak a blessing over your spouse with an CHERISH list.

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves…” Philippians 2:3

* Third, read your CHERISH list out loud in front of family and friends.
“Let him lead me to the banquet hall, and let his banner over me be love.” Song of Solomon 2:4
 
* Fourth, practice an CHERISH bombardment.
“…outdo one another in showing honor.” Romans 12:10
 
Cherish your spouse with your time.
 
“Empathetic listening is an awesome medication for the hurting heart.” Dr. Gary Chapman
Expand the time you just listen. 
Recent research has indicated that the average individual listens for only seventeen seconds before interrupting and interjecting his own ideas.
* First, a daily delay prioritizes 15-20 minutes to keep short accounts.
15 to 20 minutes a day to just focus on each other.
“My lover is to me a cluster of henna blossoms from the vineyards of En Gedi.” – Song of Solomon 1:14
 
* Second, a weekly withdrawal prioritizes date night.
“Listen! My lover! Look! Here he comes, leaping across the mountains, bounding over the hills. My lover is like a gazelle or a young stag.
Look! There he stands be- hind our wall, gazing through the windows, peering through the lattice. My lover spoke and said to me,“
Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come with me.”Song of Solomon 2:8-10
* Third, the annual abandon is a retreat out of town to refresh and recali-brate.
“Come, my lover, let us go to the countryside, let us spend the night in the villages Let us go early to the vineyards to see if the vines have budded,
if their blossoms have opened, and if the pomegranates are in bloom—there I will give you my love.”Song of Solomon 7:11-12
