Fit Bit ( knowing what to do and doing it)

Fit Bit (Knowing what to do vs. doing it)
James 4:17  “Remember, too, that knowing what is right to do and then not doing it is sin.”

WOW!!  Does this hit hard for me.  What about you?

I know that God has called me to be a better steward of the many blessings He has given me, yet day after day…. I repeat the patterns, I wish to resolve.  It is easier to do, what we know to do, when we do it together.

Ecclesiastes 4:12 Though one may be overpowered, 
 two can defend themselves. 
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

A few weeks back I did a youth conference.  One of the youth leaders asked me to come and speak to his men’s group because their men were dying of adult onset diseases earlier then the women. Leaving many women widowed.  I told him it would be more effective if I came to talk with the wives, or the families as a group.  We don’t stand-alone.  Women typically run the home. They buy the groceries, prepare the food and set the tone of the home.  Men usually are the breadwinners and spiritual leaders.  There is an old saying. “Behind every good man is a better woman.”  Women, have a huge role in the health and wellness of their families.  If a family members struggle with sweets, fatty foods, inactivity or lack of time for the Bible, I believe it is our duty to help them.   Having a supportive family atmosphere is essential to help us do, what we know to do.  Ask your family for support and be supportive.

Sometimes no matter how hard we try, we can’t seem to help our loved ones; we can pray them through it.

1 John 5:14-15  "This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him. 

God’s timing is not ours; trust he hears and answers your prayers.

Be fit and be blessed,
