Fit Bit ( Downhill is Up)

Fit Bit (Down Hill is Up)
This week I have the good fortune to be on a downhill ski vacation in Big Sky Montana.  WOW do I love it here.  There is something about the West that takes my breath away.  I cannot help but thank God all the time for His amazing work.  My Nephew once said,” I thought about being an Atheist, but then I looked around and saw all this beauty and thought, this could not be just random, this has to be by Devine design.  When I am on the Mountain Top or anywhere here in God’s country; I think, “Thank you God for your Devine design”.  This downhill experience has really brought me up. 

 God’s Devine design is everywhere.  I have learned to see His beauty everywhere.  Look around outside today.  See the awesomeness He has done.  Know that the same power that made the mountains is for you in forgiveness and new life and love.  Trust Jesus today and look up, even if things may seem to be going downhill.

Be fit and be blessed,

Fit Bit (As you Think)

Fit Bit (As you think)
Philippians 4:8  “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

Proverbs 23:7  “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he;…”

As we think, there we go.  Before every action is a thought.  Before we throw something we have a thought.  Before we eat the candy we have a thought.  Before we over spend we have a thought.  Gossip, anger, lust, compulsiveness, healthful eating, exercise, happiness, good conversations, joy, hopefulness all these things are proceeded by a thought.  Today I challenge you to control your thinking. “Think on these things”, declares the Lord; I have learned to control my thinking by intentionally thinking on what helps me.  To do this, I listen to Christian radio, I read my Bible, I attend church and I fellowship with other Christian women.  It is easy to get sucked into negativity and failure. It’s much more FUN to be lifted up in joy.   If I get attacked with a negative thought I fight it right away with a word from God.  This is how I resist the Devil.   Memorizing Bible verses keeps me successful.  Try it today and feel JOY flow as you are empowered to walk the path you really want to walk.  True health and wellness starts in the heart.  Let Jesus be the Lord of your heart.  Decide to do this in your head!   AS YOU THINK!

Be fit and be blessed,

Fit Bit (cookies are fun)

Fit Bit (Cookies are Fun)

Cookies are fun and being fat is a drag.
 A moment on the lips is forever on the hips.

What a bummer I wish I could have it both ways.   I like cookies and I hate feeling fat.

UHHGGG         Paul said, “why is it that I do the things I don’t want to do and don’t do the things I want to do?”

I’m not alone in this battle; I will seek Go first and trust Him to curve my cookie cravings.  Plus I will try to stay away from the first cookie, since I very rarely can eat only one!!

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Not that I think cookies are the Devil, but you get the point!

Be fit and be blessed,


Fit Bit ( Fresh Start)

Fit Bit (New Year/ Fresh Start)
I know at this stage in my life, I have pretty much given up on New Years resolutions.  I have given up because I have had years of failures.  This year I am remembering the attitude I had toward my alcoholic behavior (which used to be my annual resolution).  I had tried to quit drinking for 29 years; I had decided that I would never be able to quit so why even try.  I thought to myself, I need to find someone to love me just the way I am, drunk and all.  I prayed, “I can’t do this Lord, help me find someone to love me. “  

Surrender, it is an amazing beginning.  On my own, I could not quit or start anything and see it through completely.  With the help of God, I have been able to stay sober for 11 years.  I stay clean because I found someone that loves me just the way “I am”.  Jesus.  I don’t ever want to loose the closeness I feel toward my Lord.  When I was drinking the bottle had become my obsession.  I couldn’t love God or others because I was too busy loving my booze.  It is sad for me to think of who I was, but I thank God that is no longer who I am.  I am a new creation through Jesus Christ. 

Most of you are not struggling with alcoholism, but all of you are struggling with something, It is our humane condition.  For your “Fresh Start” in 2016 put God first, surrender all.  Then Watch His wondrous works.

Luke 10:27 “ And he answering said, “Though shalt love the Lord Thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength and with all thy mind and thy neighbor as thyself.”

Luke 9:62 “And Jesus said unto him, “No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back is fit for the kingdom of God.”

Be fit and be blessed,
