Fit Bit (Sex Sin)

Fit Bit (Sex Sin)
Run from sex sin.

Sex sin…is almost a taboo subject.  Many of us living single have pretended in our mind that in today’s world God doesn’t care as much about Sex sin.  THAT IS A LIE!  Just because the media portrays sex as glamorous and freeing doesn’t not make it true.  Sex can be beautiful between a husband and a wife as long as it is kept loving and pure.  Using our bodies in unnatural ways even between a husband and wife can deeply hurt the marriage bed.

Personally, I have felt the devastation of sexual sin.  I felt unworthy and unlovable.

The GOOD NEWS, Jesus died for me!  I feel beautiful because He has pardoned me, and made me new, like a virgin.  He pardons you too!  Just ask, believe you has been set free and don’t look back.  Today is a new day.  If you suffer with sexual sin, it is affecting your true health and wellness.   Run from it with the help of our Lord.

I Corinthians 6:17-18  “But if you give yourself to the Lord, you and Christ are joined together as one person.  18 That is why I say to run from sex sin.  No other sin affects the body as this one does.  When you sin this sin it is against you own body.  (The Living Bible translation)

FIt Bit (fear of different)

Fit Bit (Fear of different)
Yesterday, I felt a fear toward someone of less fortunate then I.  He was a very kind man.  Yet, I found myself in judgment verses love.  Truly, all that I have is a gift from God.  It was only a little over 20 years ago that I was living in complete chaos.  I was a not so functioning alcoholic, less then 10 years ago.  Why do I think I have the right to be judgmental of an other?  We all do this to some degree especially when we gossip.    Is it easier to sit in judgment and fear of others then it is to intentionally love and respect them for who they are?  When I first tried to quit drinking at age 19, with AA.  I saw a lot of people sitting around the tables that I thought I was better then.  20+ years later, I was as pathetic as I could be.  My counselor told me, look at the similarities and not the differentness.” Once I found value in “those” people, I was able to let them and their stories help me.   Yet, some days I forget and sit in judgment, not seeing the beautiful gifts God has given the person, I am sitting in fear of.

Each of us is going through something.  Are you treating all of God’s children with respect and love?   

Ephesians 4:12-16  “Why is it that He gives us these special abilities to do certain things best?  It is that God’s people sill be equipped to do better work for Him, building up the church, the body of Christ, to a position of strength and maturity.”…16 Under His direction the whole body is fitted together perfectly, and each part in tits own special way helps the other parts, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.

Fit Bit (confronted with the truth)

Fit Bit (confronted with the truth)

Many times we surround our selves with yes men.  We prefer to be with people that agree with us, rather then the people that will show us our errors.  Back when I was a drinker, I preferred to be around people who would tell me I was “not an alcoholic.”
This worked for me so, I could continue on in my destructive lifestyle feeling justified.  The truth inside of me was easier to hide as I surrounded myself with people who would help me hide it.  But the nagging “ you are a drunk” kept haunting me.  I could not hide the truth.  If someone would confront me about my obvious problem with alcohol, I would get angry.  I would wear my denial on the outside but on the inside I was eroding.  It was not until I faced the truth, that I had a serious problem and needed God’s help that I was able to stop the denial and start the recovery.  I had to stop being angry when confronted about the truth and start facing it.  I no longer get mad when someone brings up the issues I used to have with alcohol, but if they bring up the issues I have with spending…. I can feel the ugliness start to swell up in me.  It is hard to face an unpleasant truth about oursleves.  It is easier to get angry and pretend we do not have an issue.  To live truly well on the inside, we have to face the truths in our lives and deal with them, through the beautiful, loving hand of God.  

Do you have a nagging truth that you have to face today? 

1 Kings 22:18,27  “Didn’t I tell you? The king of Israel exclaimed…”He never prophesies anything but trouble for me…’ Put this man in prison, and feed him nothing but bread and water.”

Don’t get angry…. get inspired.

Be fit and be blessed,

Fit Bit (celebrate today's recovery)

Fit Bit (celebrate todays’ recovery)
Luke 15; 32 “ It was right that we should make merry and be glad, for your brother was dead and is alive again, and was lost and is found.”

It is good to celebrate life’s victories for Christ. 

Think on these things; think on what is pure, what is honest what is without contempt.  Hatred, anger, intense regret, self-pity…there is no reward in this type of thinking.

Personally, I find it easier to beat myself up then to concentrate on what good God is doing in my life.   To be healthy and well, I have to intentionally focus on what is right and embrace it!  If I allow myself to walk down the path of consuming remorse, I will not be able to find the energy to be the beautiful woman God created me to be.

Today, will you be celebrating God’s victories?

Be encouraged and strengthened, through His word and promises;

Mathew 28:20 “…Lo, I am with you always even to the end of the age.”,

Be fit and blessed,
