are you falling?

"... be careful that you don’t fall!  No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it." 1 Corinthians 10:12-13

Cool, crisp air, roasted marshmallows and the crunching of fallen leaves under the feet... don't you just love Fall?  One of my favorite childhood memories is raking up fallen leaves as high as possible and jumping in them.  But not all things that fall are good.

Life is filled with temptations.  When weary or busy, falling away from our faith and trust in God is possible.  The crushing of our spirit and coldness of heart can leave us feeling forsaken and panicky.  This is not what our Father intends for us.

When faced with temptations and hard times, God provides many ways to cushion the fall and to help restore our faith.  Through prayer, worship, music, reading His Magnificent Word, or talking with a fellow believer, God equips us with the tools to stay strong in leaning on Him.  

Thank You, Father, for giving me what i need.  Thank You for catching me when i fall.

have a strong-filled day!
