Here we are November 26th 2012. We have less then a month before Christmas. Over the next few weeks our Fit Bits theme will be Holy, Healthy and Happy for the Holidays. This week let us continue on in the spirit of Thanksgiving.
“It’s not the happy people who are thankful, it is the thankful people who are happy.”
Now that our Thanksgiving feast is behind us, most of us are tempted to get into the Holiday frenzy. SLOW DOWN!!! Holidays are the HOLY DAYS!!!! SLOW DOWN!!!!!!
This season, live in His love, peace and forgiveness, share that.
John 13:34 “A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another, as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.”
Trampling people over at the mall, pushing and shoving over a material product, being rude to the checkout attendant etc.…where is Christmas love in that?
Do you think it is appropriate to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ with gluttony, drunkenness, indebtedness, stress and hatred? Of course you don’t! Yet, this time of year we easily fall into those behaviors and emotions. This season, let’s be committed to His love and spread that!!!
Start with being thankful for what you do have. MAKE A LIST OF THE THINGS YOU ARE THANKFUL FOR. When we start our season with a thankful heart, we are better equipped to continue on in His love. If you can’t think of anything to be thankful for…start with Jesus. He died for you, making you His Beautiful Child. You are loved! Jesus Christ loves you intimately, just the way you are with all your imperfections. Be thankful for that. Trust and believe in His love, first and foremost this Holy season. Everything else will fall into place.
Be fit and be blessed,
