Good Morning! Hope you all are having a great Thursday so far. How do you like the new blog layout? I’ve been working on it the past few days, and have been learning a lot as I go. I know it is definitely not perfect, but it’s getting there! Thanks so much for hanging in there while I make these changes. I’m hoping to start adding in some new categories and angles to the blog, so stayed tuned for that!
This morning I was reading in 1 Corinthians, and came across one of my favorites passages of scripture…
“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 for you to stand up under it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13b
God doesn’t promise us an easy, perfect, temptation-free life. We live in a broken, fallen world, and there is nothing we can do about that fact—we are always going to have trials and temptations of some kind. But, he does promise that we will not be tempted beyond what we can bear. And when we are tempted, he will always provide a way for us to overcome that temptation. Just because we are tempted, doesn’t mean we have to give into said temptation. We may think that there is no other way out, but God promises us that he will provide a way for us to overcome what ever trial or temptation we may be facing.
Don’t give up. Even when life seems so hard, and you don’t think it is possible for you to go on, remember God’s promises to you. He won’t let you be tempted or tested more than you can bear, and he will always provide a way for you to overcome. Be encouraged!
Well, I hope you all have a great rest of your day. I’m off to check some things off my to-do list before the weekend rolls around…yay! God Bless:)
