I’ve Fallen and I Can’t get Up!

Poor Shania Twain!  Her big entrance at the CMT Awards and she FALLS down, hard!

I felt so bad for her and have had my share of embarrassing moments!

Ever feel like this?

Sometimes it’s just hard to stand on your own feet, isn’t it?  How about this?

Ok, now you are getting the picture, right?  Alright, one more…

By now, you should feel alot better about yourself!

We’ve been studying temptation and how to prevent FALLING into it in our Bible Study on Wednesday nights.  Seems like so many times, when temptation comes knocking, it’s hard for many to resist and they FALL – HARD!

Hopefully, you are all able to hold out against the things thrown at you, but if you do slip and FALL, it doesn’t have to defeat you.  Check out these wise words of Truth:

Acts 3:19-20

Contemporary English Version (CEV)

19So turn to God! Give up your sins, and you will be forgiven. 20Then that time will come when the Lord will give you fresh strength. He will send you Jesus, his chosen Messiah.

James 5:16

New Living Translation (NLT)

 16 Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.

Psalm 51:12

Contemporary English Version (CEV)

12Make me as happy as you did when you saved me;  make me want to obey!

God does not want you to FALL and not get back up!  He is with you all the way and will do His part if you do yours.  Even if the FALL embarrasses you, make it right, dust yourself off, get back up, then do what Shania Twain is doing – make the most of it and move ahead!!

Ok,  here’s one more that had me nearly FALLING off my chair, (and we all know that I’m pretty good at that, right? 🙂
