Fit Bit ( Refocus Prayer)

Fit Bit (A refocus prayer/ Get your head on Straight)

Does your mind ever wander while you are reading God’s word?  Mine does.
Today I am sitting here in my Grandmothers’ kitchen and thinking of many things as I read His Word.  I have read a whole chapter and retained about zero. 

I prayed, “ Lord, this beautiful lake view could be a dessert, a snow storm or a street, but your Word is unchanging, your word is a lamp unto my feet, my strength and my hope.  Please Lord fill me with your Holy Spirit, so I may hear, learn and be filled with your Word.  Through Jesus Holy name I pray, AMEN. 

Many time my mind goes into directions I need it not to.  I have found that if I ask the Lord to fill me with His Holy Sprit and change my mind it helps me.  I hope this little Fit Bit can help you too.  After all as we think, so shall we be.

Proverbs 23:7  “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”

Psalm 119:105 “ Your word is a lamp unto my feet, a light on my path.”

Philippians 4:8  “Finally Brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, what ever things are pure whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report if there is any virtue and if there is anything praise worthy meditate on these things.”

Be fit and be blessed,

FIt Bit (THE Joy of the LORD is my STRENGTH!!)

Fit Bit
(The Joy of the Lord is my Strength!)
Nehemiah 8:10  “Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our LORD:  neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

The JOY OF THE LORD IS MY STRENGTH!!    I love living in thanksgiving and peace!  I have plenty of trials that I face, yet HIS joy is my ever-present strength!  I have many things that go wrong each and every day.  Yet, I keep looking up and when I do, even if things are “OFF” I am “ON”. 

John 10:10 “ The thief comes, but to kill steal and destroy, I have come that they may have life to the full and in abundance!!”

It is SUMMER TIME!  This is my favorite season.  I love to ride bicycle, water ski and swim.  I love campfires and 6 marshmallow smores.  I believe it is important to have and enjoy our lives.  If I walk around miserable, then people see me miserable and certainly would not want to be like me.  If, I live in HIS joy and enjoy my life regardless of my circumstances, people want to know how I do it.  That gives me an awesome chance to witness.

Today be inspired to live in HIS joy!  Let His joy be your strength.  Be HIS light, no matter what darkness lurks.

Be fit and be blessed,

Fit Bit (Thankful this Memorial Day!)

Fit Bit (Memorial Day)
I heard a sermon yesterday that reminded me of the sacrifice our service men and women make and comparing it to the Jesus, giving His sacrifice once and for all.  Today, Memorial day, I stand in great appreciation for Jesus and our Military.  I pray that I too can serve others with a pure heart and be willing to pay the ultimate price.

This Memorial Day I just want to extend a heart felt THANK YOU to all service men and women and their families.  FREEDOM ISN’T FREE.  THANK YOU!!!           

Hebrews 10:10 “By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.”

Hebrews 10:16  “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;  17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.”

Be fit and be blessed,

Fit Bit (Motiviation)

Fit Bit (Motivation)

Recently I ran a 50-mile run, for fun.  My dear friend asked me how I motivated to do that, It was simple, my others friends were doing it and I said I would.  My motivation for that event was I said I would so I wanted my yes to be yes.

Along the way, training for this event I felt the inevitable, “you can’t do this” come up.  One way I stayed motivated was to listen to the Prayz network, as I was on my long training runs.  I was convinced if I could listen to Prayz while doing my 50 miler and have it on a Speaker, I could witness for Jesus, be witnessed to and run.  I thought it was a perfect plan.  Unfortunately, there was no cell phone service where my 50 miler took place.  So during the race I held onto scripture, song lyrics and decided even if I couldn’t run I could walk.  While racing, I met someone who was cramping up.  I prayed for him and his cramps went away.  He said, “I forgot, that I could pray”.   Isn’t that funny?  I forget that too.  Sometimes I go out on my own and forget that God is with me.  When I remember I can call on Him at anytime for any thing, THAT IS MY TRUE MOTIVATION.

Whatever race you are running today, be motivated to finish what you started.  Let your Yes be Yes and you No be No.  Be strong and Courageous, Our Lord Jesus Christ lives in YOU!!!

Be fit and be blessed,


Matthew 5:37
All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.

Fit Bit (Try a Nightly FAST)

Fit Bit (Try a Nightly Fast)
Mark 9:29 “And He said unto them, “This kind can come forth by nothing, but prayer and fasting.”

Fasting, I think this is a difficult thing to do.  Recently a fellow fitness expert was explaining to me the weight loss benefit of nightly fasting.  A researcher found that nightly “fasts” really helped individuals control their weight.  I tried this.  I try not to eat anything past seven in the evening, with my 10pm bedtime and I don’t refuel myself until after my morning workout.  It is amazing to me how quickly my body responded to this discipline.  I quickly loose the bloat and a few extra pounds when I do this.  Yet even though it works, I can still talk myself into late meals and late night ice cream. My body also quickly responds to this negative behavior.  In order to have a bit more success, I am going to try remembering to dedicate my nightly fasts to the Lord as way to discipline my body.  Also, there is power in fasting and praying so hopefully that will give me even more benefit then a regular diet.

I hope this inspires you to try a nightly fast unto our Lord so you too can feel the power of discipline in His love.

1 Corinthians 9:27  “But I keep my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.”

1 Corinthians 2:9  “ But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.”
