These past two weeks have been crazy for me. I can't believe that October is half way over. My family took a Fall break from homeschool last week. Sometimes a little break is needed. Then, this week, my Father had shoulder surgery and thank the Lord, he is doing well. Praise God! Thank you for your continued prayers for his quick recovery. I feel great to be back. I missed connecting with you all.
Well, it's officially Fall now! And soon it will be November.
As this beautiful autumn season progresses, I ponder this simple question:
Are we falling in love more with our Lord Jesus?
Are we falling away?
Our time and attention can easily be taken away by the things of this world. We need to daily take time for a self-evaluation. A heart check.
Have you fallen lately or feel defeated in some way?
As a mom, you can beat yourself up. As a wife, you can feel like you don't measure up. Ever been there before? We all fall short of the glory of God, Romans 3: 23 tells us, but there is a way! Oh yes, there is a way my friend. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and no one can come to the Father except through Him (John 14:6). For He is the only ONE who can raise you up and raise you up again.
Jesus, our first love has never left us. Yet, Have we forsaken him?
The good news is that even if you fall, you can get back up again. His loving arms are always extended toward you, waiting for you to take his hand. No matter how far you've run from Him, you can come back. He says, "Lean on my everlasting arms". Every fault, or failure; trial or trouble, nothing is too big to keep us from the love of God.
As I watch every leaf that falls from the tree and lands on the crisp dewy ground, I will remember to clutch ever so tightly to my Lord and hold on. Falling in love with Him more every moment of every day.
May this be an encouraging reminder for you during this autumn season . . .
If you FALL
Jesus will help you up again.
He Never LEAVES you
or forsakes you
He Loves you with an
Blessings and Shalom,
P.S. How is your life in October going? Are the leaves showing their colorama where you live?
