Fit Bit (sometimes his answer is NO)

Fit Bit (Sometimes His answer is no)
I was recently with my step Father as he was on his way home, to our Lord.  During this time frame many parts of the process were very difficult.  I told my Dad#2 that when he feels anxious, simply pray and trust God.  He said, “I tried that and it doesn’t work.”

Have you ever felt that way?  Feeling as if your prayers were falling on deaf ears?

Sometimes His answer is no.

I have run into people, I used to date and thought to my self, thank you God for having that end.  Yet, at the time of the break up I was begging God to fix it for me.

God hears the prayers of a righteous person.  We are all righteous if we are praying through Jesus name.  Without Jesus our prayers don’t reach God.  It’s kind of like trying to make a cell phone call without a cellular provider.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, “I am the way, the truth and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but buy me.”

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

So, if you are felling that your prayers are falling on deaf ears;
 1st make sure you are coming to God through Jesus holiness, not your own. 
 2ndmaybe He has greater plans for you, trust Him.

Romans 8:28  “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.”

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts I think toward you, saith the Lord, thought of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”

Be fit and be blessed,

Fit Bit ( A Repentant Heart)

Fit Bit (A Repentant Heart)
Today, as I was getting ready for the day, my adult son openly cut me down, told me to shut up, and was completely disrespectful. 

My heart breaks at his unrepentant heart.  More then anything I want my children and all those I love to have a repentant heart that is filled with forgiveness through Jesus Christ. 

Recently, I have been spending time with my slowly dying Step Father.  He is 75.  A few days ago, he was terrified of turning into a snake.  He was crying, he said he was so ashamed.  I was able to share the Gospel with him.  He told me; he believes Jesus died on the cross for him in order, to make him right with God.  He believes Jesus rose again, conquering death.  I have shared the Gospel with him many times before.  Yet, this time, with his truly repentant heart, he was finally able to hear and understand it.

I know in my own life that I could not get well until I realized I was sick. 

John 8:36  “So if the Son sets you free you will be free indeed.”

Be truly well today; take your shortcomings to the CROSS!!!


Be fit and be blessed,

Fit Bit (SImple Faith)

Fit Bit (Simple Faith)
As Jesus Was hanging on the cross, the robber next to him acknowledged he deserved to be crucified and Jesus did not.

Luke 23:43  “And he said, Jesus remember me when you come into your kingdom.”  And He said to him,  “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.”
This robber/sinner had not lived his life following Jesus, or the teaching of the church, yet our Lord and Savior said, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.”

This man acknowledged Jesus as Lord and eternal, in one sentence.

Can it be that easy?  I believe it can!

All men sin and fall short of the Glory of God.  Jesus came, lived, died and rose again, ONCE and FOR ALL!!!!!

We do not earn our righteousness.  GRACE saves us.  This is the simple truth.

Hebrews 7:23  “Now there have been many of those priests, since death prevented them from continuing in office; 24 but because Jesus lives forever, He has a permanent priesthood.  25 Therefore He is able to save completely those who come to God through Him, because He always lives to intercede for them.  27…He scarified for their sins ONCE AND FOR ALL when He offered himself.”

Be fit and be blessed,
