Fit Bit (Do it through Jesus)
Dear Lord God,
Today, let me be a good steward of all you have given me, including my physical body. Please put a guard over my mouth, that I put only nutritious food in and let only nutritious conversations out. When temptations come upon me, to eat or say things I shouldn’t, please give me your strength.
Through Jesus Holy name I pray,
As this Holy time of Advent is upon us, so is the massive commercialism and worldly expectations of the Holidays. In the winter time it is natural for animals to rest more. Yet, our culture says, speed things up, have parties and spend money, I believe it is far more natural for us to be still and know that Jesus is Lord. I personally feel Christmas time is an awesome time to reflect on the miracle of Jesus. I enjoy the lights and the cookies. Yet, the reflection of HOLY, helps me the most. I do get caught up in the hype. I pray that instead this season, I can all get caught up in the hope.
If I let a fast paced world take me over, I can over eat and speak defeat. To battle the fast pace of this world at Christmas time, I need to be still and Know He is God. I need to be grounded and rooted in His word. When My feet are on His rock. I can more easily find the strength to resist temptation.
Philippians 4:13. “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.”
Psalm 46:10 “ Be still and know that I am God.”
Mathew 15:11 “What goes into someones mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them.”
James 3:10. “Out of the same mouth comes praise and cursing, my brothers and sisters, this should not be.”
I hope this little fit Bit, helps you remember to be Holy for the Holidays!
Be fit and be blessed,
