Fit Bit ( Walk by faith not by sight)

Fit Bit (Walk by Faith not by Sight)

Merry Christmas!   Walk by faith not by sight.  Many years ago the Shepard’s saw a star on high.  They walked by faith and not by sight.  Can you imagine that type of faith?  Is that the faith you feel filled with this Christmas season?  Do you trust in the Lord with all your heart and mind and go boldly in the direction He leads you?

Today I m reminded of Faith because it is the Winter solstice.  Dec 21st is my second favorite day of the year.  My favorite day of the year is June 21st the Summer solstice, the longest day of the year.  I love the Sunshine.  I love long days in the light.  I spend six months looking forward to both of these days.   Today is the shortest day of the year for Sunshine.  Tomorrow the days start getting longer.  I look forward to the longer days of light.

Faith is like that.  I look forward to the promises of God.  I know that there are days of darkness.  I also know by faith that there are days of lots of light ahead.
 God says in His word;

Philippians 4:8[Full Chapter]
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

So today, the day of the least amount of Sunshine in the year,  I will chose to think about the days of the most.  Isn’t it cool that we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus on the days of the least amount of sunlight?  I believe this helps us focus on the true light He has brought to our dark world.  Today, as you are preparing to celebrate His light, be filled with it too.  Continually remember to walk by faith and not by sight.

For we live by faith, not by sight.

Merry Christmas!

Be fit, be blessed and Merry Christmas,


This is a program motivated by my dear Daughter Erin Mathews who was so very good at spreading His Son’s Shine while she was here on earth.  There is no cost to this program.  A free will offering will be accepted, monies will be used to cover basic administration costs any remainder will be used to fund a scholarship program set up in Erin’s memory for a PA student exhibiting qualities similar to those she held. 

If you are not in the Sparta area and would like to get something like this started in your community, please contact me too. I am confidant God can work something out!!
