Fit Bit (Stand Strong)

Fit Bit (Stand Strong)
Indecision is one of my worse sins.  I try to make good decisions based on God’s word.  Yet, in the midst of my ordinary day, I often rely on my own thoughts and feelings and forget to pray and trust God.  I consider myself a “plugged in” Christian, but still I behave like this.  I think it is difficult to be still and stand strong in God.  My over thinking female brain is always coming up with a “better idea”.  How ridiculous!  I pray and look toward God and then do it “my way” any way.  Inevitably I find myself repenting and trying again to be more dedicated to doing what I know God would want me to do.

If you too struggle with indecision, be like Solomon and ask God for discernment.  Ask Him for guidance you then STAND STRONG in His word.

“All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.”

Psalm 91
 “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty”.

Be fit and be blessed,

Fit Bit ( Win,win solutions)

Fit Bit (Win/Win)

Last week we had a blast with four teenage girls and myself at our “Bible Babes” camp, which I ran at my Lake home.  We had many good discussions regarding “Life” issues and had wonderful opportunity to solve problems by consulting the WORD OF GOD.
Here is an example of a Win/Win solution we came up with at our “Bible Babes” camp.

    One girl likes a boy that her parents do not approve of; she is planning on sneaking around to see him and maybe asking the boy to wait for her until she turns 18. (She is currently 14). 

Situation:  This boy has not had good discipline by his parents and has some behavior issues, but is a nice child.  Both children attend a Christian school.

Suggested Solution;
We decided, her parents probably don’t dislike the boy; they dislike his behavior and want her to be safe.  We identified that serious dating at age 14 is not a good idea. We agreed that sneaking around is not the way to go.  Therefore she decided to ask the boy to meet with her parents to figure out how he can “be her friend (not her boy friend)” with their approval.  We decided this is a WIN/WIN solution.

Ephesians 6:1  “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.  2 Honor your Father and Mother, which is the first commandment with a promise; 3”that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”  4 And fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.”

I hope this inspires you to find a WIN/WIN solution to what ever is going on in your life.  The concept of WIN/WIN comes from Steven Coveys’ book “7 Habits of Highly Effective People.”  It is an excellent read.

Be fit and be blessed,
