Today's Devotional: Repent For The Kingdom Is Here!


God’s Call to Genuine Repentance

Healing comes when our heart's desire is to please our heavenly Father. 

From Intouch Ministries

March 6, 2023

2 Corinthians 7:8-11

In the kitchen sits a full cookie jar, and 6-year-old Todd is determined to have one. When his mom walks in, she finds him—one arm still in the jar—chewing fast. The first words out of his mouth are, “I’m sorry.” He obviously regrets being caught and is unhappy about the punishment that may follow, but he’s probably not remorseful for eating the cookies. 

Believers sometimes approach confession and repentance the same way. Sorrow usually accompanies admission of guilt, and feelings of shame and remorse are labeled as repentance. Yet too often our repentance is shallow. We’re sad over the consequences of our actions and upset that we’ve failed to live up to our own standards of good behavior. But genuine repentance goes deeper than self-reproach; it involves a sense of grief over having wronged God by sinning against Him. 

Our desire should be to please our heavenly Father, not grieve Him. So genuine repentance leads us to forsake the sin and practice obedience. When we humble ourselves and truly repent, the Holy Spirit pours His power and strength into our life. Then we are enabled to turn from that sin in order to walk in obedience to our Lord.

US Sports Health: What are the impacts of obesity on the body?


  • Author Craig Payne

Being overweight is turning out to be an increasingly critical public health issue because it raises the risk for so many medical disorders, most of which can be quite major which places a major obligation on health care systems around the globe. It is estimated that generally in most the western world, 40 to 50% of people can be considered to be in the obese group. The health effects of being overweight have an impact on almost any body system which includes the brain, arteries, heart, liver, gall bladder, bone tissues and joints. Having too much weight or having obesity dramatically increases the potential for having a cerebrovascular event and the repercussions and also complications of this. 


Fat which is located round the neck might make the air passage too small which is going to increase the threat for sleep apnoea which is in the event the inhaling and exhaling might actually cease for short intervals during the night in people who have sleep apnoea. Those with overweight problems have been associated with a greater risk of gastroesophageal reflux disorder which is when the gastric acid escapes into the oesophagus. There is also a greater risk of forming gall stones. Excessive fat is specifically a challenge for developing surrounding the liver and ultimately causing liver damage as well as liver failing. In people who are at an unhealthy weight the heart as well as the vascular system must continue to work hard to pump blood throughout the entire body resulting in high blood pressure which also raises the chance for a stroke, cardiac arrest and renal disorder. Obesity additionally helps make the body’s cells more resistant against insulin which is a key factor in raising the possibility for diabetes type 2. Type 2 diabetes in turn also increases the chance for a range of other medical issues, which includes cardiovascular disease, renal disease, stroke, loss of limb and loss of sight. Obesity causes it to become harder for a females to get pregnant and in those who do become pregnant, it might add to the potential for serious difficulties during the pregnancy.

Overweight problems have significant influences on the bone and joint system, causing a weakening with bone strength and density and muscle tissue raising the potential for bony injury. The extra weight applies too much stress on the joints, leading to pain and stiffness as well as raising the possibility for osteo arthritis. Obesity impacts your feet, placing a large amount of stress on them when we walk around increasing the possibility for a lot of distinctive foot conditions. 


Those with obesity may also find it difficult reaching the feet resulting in difficulties with self-care in addition to wearing footwear. Obesity has also been linked to an elevated probability of many different types of cancers including cancers of the liver, digestive tract and pancreas. The bigger the Body mass index, the greater the probability of these types of cancer. Skin rashes can occur where the epidermis of excess fat folds causing cleanliness problems. Overweight problems have also been connected with a variety of mental health issues and they are generally more likely to have reduced overall well-being, encounter a lot more undesirable inner thoughts and display more psychopathological signs and symptoms including depressive disorders, poor self-esteem, in addition to difficulties with body image. Simply because obesity affects virtually every section of the human body, it's increasingly important to handle this with a combination of diet regime, physical exercise, and lifestyle changes.

Johnny’s Story

Check Out This Army Ranger Body Transformation.  Today I am sharing Johnny’s  Transformation.

I had spent the majority of my life in the military. I had done two tours to Iraq and one to Afghanistan. I completed Airborne School and Ranger School. I was always looking for challenges and pushing myself to my physical and mental limits.

Then in 2017 I left Active Duty and entered the corporate sector. I felt lost and had no identity. I struggled to find my way and found that I was drinking to settle my anxiety along with that feeling of being lost. My physical health had deteriorated and I was not the person I was in the military. I needed to make a change and I reached out to Micah LaCerte of Hitch Fit and started the FITNESS MODEL PLAN.

He guided me and was there for me every step of the way on my physical fitness journey. What was most helpful is that Micah helped me to build back my mental health through working out again.

His program changed my life and I live a life focused on my fitness.......Keep reading......

Today's Sunday Devotional. Perfected, Not Perfect


Sunday Reflection: Becoming Holy

The Christian's goal is not faultlessness but the pursuit of Jesus, which leads to the abundant life. 

From Intouch Ministries

March 5, 2023

To get the most out of this devotion, set aside time to read the scriptures referenced throughout.

It’s common to hear Christians say, “You don’t have to be perfect—God loves you just the way you are.” And that statement is true, except it’s not the whole picture.

Yes, the Lord’s love is unconditional; we can do nothing to change it. At the same time, His plan for all believers is to make us increasingly like Himself. It’s a perfection that transcends our understanding of the term—a perfection found not in how we perform but in our willingness to surrender our life to Him.

In Matthew 5:48 (NIV), Jesus says, “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Instead of hearing those words as an impossible expectation, think of them as an invitation. He’s welcoming you to the abundant life, the healing of your soul, the recovery of your true self. It’s what we know as the process of sanctification.

To be sanctified—in other words, to become holy—is not a pursuit of faultlessness but rather one of becoming more and more like Jesus. And there’s just one way to do that: Say “yes” to His invitation each day. 

Think about it

• Read Matthew 5:6 and 2 Corinthians 3:18. How do these verses make you feel about Jesus’ command to be perfect?

US Sports Defense Featuring: Concealed Carry Victim Uses Awareness And a Gun to End Armed Attacker

A video from a ring doorbell camera captured a deadly encounter between two men. One of the two men involved walked away, the other is dead. Looking at the brief encounter gives us a good perspective of just how fast your day can go from routine to extreme.

Not what you want to see when you reach your front door.

Before we get into the video, I think it's important to point out a few things. First, I don't have any information about the men in the video or what led up to the shooting, other than what we can glean from the video.

Next, anytime we analyze one of these types of incidents, there are some people who think that I'm just “Monday morning quarterbacking,” and that is not the intent. Rather, I think we can learn a lot about violence and civilian defensive gun uses, that we can then apply to our defensive strategy.

Lastly, I just want to point out one of the many observations we can get from this brief video clip. Most likely, you'll have opinions and observations of your own. Feel free to share those thoughts in the comments below.

Now on to the video.

Some Gunfights Are Won Before a Round Get's Fired—

In no way am I discounting the importance of training with and using a reliable everyday carry (EDC) gun and holster. The one of the many things we focus on here at Concealed Carry dot Com, is to help people become safer and more proficient with their firearm. However, many well-trained professionals and civilians have died in an ambush.

Because, mostly, as defenders, we are reactionary in that we respond to an attacker. We don't typically get to choose when, where, or how a defensive gun use will go down. Try as we might, training can't really replicate real world violence in a safe way. Even force-on-force training, which is some of the best training one can participate in, can't recreate the suddenness of an attack. You're either in the training scenario or you're not. You know something is likely going to happen when you're training. In real life, it can happen just at that brief moment you drop your guard or mentally check out.

No one can have 100% situational awareness every moment they are in public. Lots of people think they do, but it's not only impossible, but unhealthy. Consider a thing called the Dunning-Kruger Effect, which essentially describes how we have a propensity to overestimate our abilities. The lower or ability is, the higher people tend to estimate their abilities.

But this doesn't mean we shouldn't be aware of our surroundings. We absolutely need to pay attention to who and what is around us. The point in all of this is to point out that in the video, it was the victim's awareness that gave him the best chance at winning this fight.

The Victim's Awareness—

We see the victim return home with grocery bags carried in his left hand. We can see he has a semi-auto handgun tucked into his waistband on his right hip. He has his door keys in his right hand and uses them to unlock and I think, open his apartment door.

As he's doing this, we hear someone calling out to the man saying something like “hey bro.” He turns to look and grips his handgun with his right hand. He sees the man, which we later see is wearing a t-shirt, pants, mask and hat. I don't know the timeframe of this video, but it doesn't seem like the guy was wearing a mask because of cold weather, as he was also wearing just a t-shirt. Now it's possible it happened when it was fashionable to wear face diapers. Even after 3 years of 15 days to flatten the curve, I don't feel comfortable when I am around someone wearing a mask.

The Draw and Holding Items in Your Hands —

The victim here blades his gun away from the masked man and draws his handgun with his right hand, keeping it shielded from the attacker's view as he engages the man is brief conversation. I think it's important to note that the defender grips his handgun while still holding onto his keys in his right hand. He may even be still holding the grocery bags in his left, but we can't see this. I bring this up because there are some different schools of thought on carrying items in your hands.

We can see the keys still dangling from the shooting hand fingers of the defender.

Method One —

One method is to carry items in your non-dominant hand. This way you can draw your firearm even if you have something in your hand. However, if you're carrying concealed, you need to clear a cover garment, and typically this is done with your non-dominant hand. And while it may be easy on the range to practice dropping things to free up your hands during the draw stroke, it's not uncommon for people to hold on to things in their hands during a stressful incident.

I'm sure you can pull up multiple videos of officer involved shootings at the window of a vehicle, where the officer draws his gun, engages the bad guy, all while holding an FI pad in their other hand. I have experienced this same phenomenon as a patrol cop in a busy southern California city. This is a good plug for practicing your draw from concealment using only one hand.


Method Two —

The other method is to carry things in your dominant hand. This way, it somewhat forces you to drop items from your hands when you move to draw your gun. It also leaves your support hand free to begin the draw stroke by clearing the garment. I see this as a viable option that I've seen work, however that didn't actually happen in this case. Now, to be fair, the keys might have been entangled in the defender's fingers, so he might not have been able to drop them easily. This could happen with other items besides keys.

The point is, when we're focused on defending ourselves, we may not perform exactly how we thought we will in respect to dropping things from our hands. My advice is still to practice carrying and dropping items from both hands, and working on drawing one handed so that you have reference points to access, no matter what hand you might have something in when you need to draw.

The Defender was Ready —

The defender felt something was off and drew his gun before the attacker drew his. He didn't draw it and immediately shoot, but he had it in his hand, ready to go. The defender also positions himself, placing a bit of the building's corner between him and the bad guy.

The defender was ready, the bad guy wasn't.

The bad guy's “draw” began from his left pants pocket. This isn't ideal, as he was a right-handed shooter. So the bad guy needed to draw the gun, then transfer to his right hand, then raise it to bear on the defender. This gave the defender perhaps an extra second of time to process what he saw, and then react. What's telling is that even though the defender already had drawn his gun, the bad guy was able to bring it to bear on him at almost the same time he broke his shot on the bad guy.

Fortunately for the defender, the men were just outside arms length distance, and he was able to break a shot on the bad guy and get the first significant hit. That hit seems to impact the attacker in the face or head. The attacker's head goes back and he begins to slump forward. The defender is able to break a second shot which is difficult to see if it impacted the bad guy or not.

If the second shot missed it likely missed horizontally, and not vertically. Meaning that it could have entered the apartment directly behind the bad guy. Another side point, this is a reason jacketed hollow points are preferred for your everyday carry gun. Over penetration of a human body is one concern for sure. But misses are something that while we want to avoid, are a reality in many defensive shootings. At most, there is probably a 60% hit rate when looking at all defensive shootings. This means upwards of 40% of rounds miss the mark. If our defender missed here, a JHP projectile is still going to penetrate the apartment walls, but ideally with much reduced velocity, compared to a full metal jacketed (FMJ) projectile.

Reasonable Questions —

Understanding that this doesn't represent every defensive gun use, I still think we should ask ourselves a few questions. I'm not going to include my personal answers here. I would rather use this as an opportunity for you, the reader, to come to your own conclusion.

—Would the defender have survived had he not preemptively drawn his gun? That is to say, recognized something was wrong, and acted on that intuition.

—Do you regularly pay attention to people and things going on around you? How about when you reach your home? We've covered many DGUs on the Podcast that involved a suspect following the victim's home and attacking when the victim is about to enter their home. What steps do you take to secure your home? Do you even have a home defense security plan?

—Had the defender been carrying the gun without a round in the chamber, would he have been able to rack the slide before using it?

—Do you think the defender thought this was the day he would need his gun? Do you carry every day, or just when you go to “the dangerous part of town?”

In Conclusion —

Again, I just wanted to focus on the defender's mindset of readiness and situational awareness. We talk about having a wholistic defensive mindset. Do you have one? I don't know, but don't suspect the defender was a master class IDPA competition shooter. He didn't have a tricked out 2011 with a fancy red dot. He might not have even been using a holster, or at least if he did, it was one that collapsed when he removed the gun. Yet he survived an intense, deadly confrontation. It all started with being ready. The question is, are you?

Today's Devotional: Staying Afloat


Hope in the Storm

To receive peace when your world is in chaos, call on Jesus for help.

From Intouch Ministries

March 4, 2023

Matthew 8:23-27

Many people in the world—maybe even you—are facing terrible storms in their life. Broken homes, joblessness, loneliness, loss, financial struggles, and world crises slash at the very fabric of hope. Some may even feel as though they’re lost, adrift at sea in a small boat during a hurricane. And many wonder, How on earth will we be able to reach the shore safely? 

The disciples faced this fear as well. While they were crossing the Sea of Galilee in their boat, the weather took a frightening turn. In desperation, they woke Jesus and cried, “Save us, Lord; we are perishing!” (Matt. 8:25). He rebuked them for their lack of faith and proceeded to calm the storm, showing Himself to be Lord over all creation. 

This story teaches us where we should turn when storms arise in our own life. Sometimes people interpret challenging events as an indication that God isn’t paying attention. That’s what the disciples thought until Christ calmed the turbulent waters. But even when the world seems out of control, remember that Jesus is in the boat with you, and He’s still Lord of all. 

Bible in One Year: Deuteronomy 33-34
