Who Will You Invite In?
Faith & Fitness Magazine

If anyone comes to your meeting and does not teach the truth about Christ, don’t invite that person into your home or give any kind of encouragement. Anyone who encourages such people becomes a partner in their evil work. 2 John 1:10-11 (NLT) Who will you invite in? Do you regularly open your door to a stranger and allow him or her to come into your house and start telling you how to live, what to eat and drink, how to organize your home, what to spend your money on, etc.? If you’re like me, you wouldn’t dare. However, I’ve invited a stranger into my life when I signed up for diet plans creat ..read more

Are you a happy person?

Are you a happy person? What do you project when you’re at the gym? If you’re like me, I put my headphones on and go into beast mode.  I think I am happy but am I really?  Does it matter? This month I want to share the idea that happiness matters.  February is a month where there is a lot of focus on mental health. I’m participating in a push up challenge to bring focus to the issue of men’s mental health and suicide rate.  The Bible tells us: “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.” (Proverbs 17:22).  The reality is we are whole being ..read more

Radiate God’s Truth

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17 (NKJV) What messages are you listening to? Who are you listening to? We live in the information age. There is noise all around us. We are bombarded with information from radio to television to social media. Information is at our fingertips. Family, friends, and co-workers add to the noise. Everyone has an opinion about everything. There is nothing wrong with this. Some of the information and opinions are helpful.  But, are you listening to messages that strengthen your faith? Do you turn off the sound when it is ..read more

Radiate God’s Love

We love him, because he first loved us. 1 John 4:19 Love. Before we ever loved Him, He loved us.  Before my husband and I got together, I remember someone telling me that a certain man was interested in me. At first they didn’t say who, and honestly, I had no clue who it could be. It took forever for me to realize that it was the man who eventually became my husband. I came to find out, he had his eye on me long before I acknowledged him.  Jesus loves you.  He’s had His eye on you since before you were born. He knows you. And He loves you just as you are. He’s watching from afa ..read more

Christmas- a mysterious event

I’ve been thinking a lot about Christmas lately. Not surprising, right? But it’s moved in a more specific direction. What’s been on my mind is the Nativity or the birth of Jesus.  I’ve been thinking how crazy it sounds that God, the creator of all things, would be born as a baby, to a virgin, in a place like Bethlehem, fully man and fully God. Is it just me or does that sound crazy? I think it does despite it being true. Let me explain how I got to this point. The reality of struggles The last few months I’ve been struggling with a number of things in my life including a couple of nagging ..read more

Radiate God’s Hope

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure. 1 John 3:1-3 Hope. Hope has come as Jesus. We’re at the time of year when it’s a bit “more acceptable” to talk about faith, hope, and love. People expect to hear m ..read more

Be a bringer of hope

This is going to be a bit of a shorter article this month but one that makes up for it by packing more of a punch. Hope is a precious commodity and one that is becoming in shorter supply these days.  Former Olympic athlete and World War 2 pilot Louie Zamperini spent 2 ½ years being tortured in a Japanese POW camp.  He said even in the worst of situations ““a part of you still believes you can fight and survive no matter what your mind knows. It’s not so strange. Where there’s still life, there’s still hope.”  That is hope lived out. A hope that transforms lives I recently saw th ..read more

You Are Not Alone

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families, he leads out the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land. Psalm 68:5-6 (NIV) You’re in a crowded room, yet you feel alone. You’re in a relationship, still you feel alone. You have a phone full of contacts, but you don’t feel like you can turn to any of them.  There are times in our lives when we feel lonely. You can’t explain it. You don’t know why. There’s no lack of people in the world, yet in that moment, in that season, you feel alone.  B ..read more
