Fit BIt (made right)

Fit Bit (Made right)

  Sometimes, I find myself lazy, driven to sweets or fatty foods.  I can feel selfish, resentful and hopeless.  When I get into such a funk it feels like hell here on earth.  My only way out is to remember, no matter what is plaguing me; Jesus loves me and is working things out for my good.  The opposite of trusting God is self-pity.  We all get into funks.  How do you get out of yours?  How do you stay out of the funk in the first place?  Personally I get out and stay out, by reading the Bible most days, fellowshipping with like-minded Christian friends and trying my best to keep walking and spreading His love regardless of how I may feel.   When I intentionally adjust my thoughts to His promises, He gets rid of my pain, and renews His right Spirit within me, so my desires and actions follow.

Putting away my fleshly desires, and spreading His love; is like getting a slice of heaven here on earth.

1 Corinthians 15:58  “So my dear brothers, since future victory is sure, be strong and steady, always abounding in the Lord’s work, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever wasted as it would be if there were no resurrection.”

Be fit and be blessed,

Fit Bit (Healthy Choices)

Fit Bit (Healthful Choices)
Ice cream, cheese, cookies, chips all fun for the moment but can be devastating to the body.  Sweets can be addictive.  Of course, one can argue moderation, but there are some of us who don’t manage moderation very well.  What do you do if you or someone you love struggles with moderation?   Replace toxic choices with good ones!

What ever you, or your loved one is struggling with, remove it from you home.  Replace it healthful choices.  Keep fruits, vegetables and healthful snacks easily available.  Focus on what you can do, not what you are struggling with.

Toxic choices are not only food related, do you have thoughts and patterns you need to replace with healthful choices?  You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you!

Changing your behavior starts with prayer and changing your thoughts.

Philippians 4:13  “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
Proverbs 16:3  “Commit your work to the Lord, then you will succeed.”

Matthew 28:20 “and then teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you; and be sure of this-that I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Be fit and be blessed,


 PS;  Fitness classes are temporarily postponed until God increases interest.
