I am slipping!

Who catches you when you fall? Your spouse, your family, your friends or God? Do you turn to the Creator first or someone else? I admit at times I run to others before God, but I always end up with God. Shouldn't it be the other way around? I always remind myself Debbie this is backwards...who truly picks you up when you slip? Who takes care of your mistakes and wipes that slate clean? Who is the only one that truly forgets?

In Psalm 94 verse 17- 19 spoke to my very being....Unless the LORD had helped me, I would soon have settled in the silence of the grave. I cried out, "I am slipping!" but your unfailing love, O LORD, supported me. When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer. Take a moment and search your soul and recall the times you were slipping, what supported you? What got you through?

Well, friends how do we share this wonderful love with others? We begin to tell our stories one by one to anybody that will listen. Small steps, but steps that will spread.

We are in a world that needs love and hope. Doubts are so massive that any glimmer of hope people are clinging to it. We sisters and brothers in Christ need to share the Light in this dark world. I've never been one that wanted to intrude in someone's space or feel like I was pushing my faith on someone else...you don't have to approach it that way...walk the talk...people will want what you have and begin to ask you questions...What's different about you? You will have a door opened to begin sharing what a difference God made in your life. You will be able to share about the time you slipped and exactly how The Almighty was the one that supported you and gave you hope in this dark world!

Sharing the Light,

Debbie, that is a wonderful passage that tells us where our hope comes from, the Lord. The enemy is just crouching around us waiting to fill our minds with doubt. That happened to me recently. My mind became filled with doubt about hope and faith. I was in a pit before I even knew what had happened to me.

But God's unfailing love supported me and His comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer just as His Word says. As I look at Psalm 94:17, I think that most of us could just fill in the blank. "Unless the Lord had helped me, I would have ____________________________."
