Fit Bit (Strained Relationships)

Fit Bit (Strained Relationships)

Good Morning, the other day, my friend Darlene Rolle and I did a breakfast retreat we titled, “Laughs B4 Lunch”.  We had a great time with our sold out crowd!  Darlene is a Christian comedian and wonderful.  I spoke on keeping the joy of the Lord in our hearts and helping others do the same regardless of our circumstances.  We had a lot of fun and plenty of laughter!  Praise GOD!!!

After the retreat, a lady came up to me and we spoke about the pain she is feeling because of a strained relationship with her father.  I coached her in a couple things and we prayed. 

Many of us have strained relationships, when this happens It really affects our ability to stay well in our lives.  When I have a strained relationship, what really helps me, is praying sincerely for that person.  Sometimes, if I am very angry, it is very difficult to get the prayer out.  Yet, when I do it really blesses me and helps me refocus on God’s joy and peace.  I also like to remember that Jesus loves me, loves the ones I love and the ones I am struggling with.

I hope this Fit Bit helps you remember to pray for those you are struggling with.

Mathew 5:44  “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;”

Be fit and be blessed,
