Fall is here!!! Which means the leaves are turning colors, and falling. It made me realize how people change and fall.

How people change:

There are a lot of people out there that are hurting, and lost with no direction. As they learn that they CAN change, their hearts begin to change. They accept Jesus into their lives.

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23

Now they can give all their worries, fears, and dreams to God. Where God can always hold them in His hands. When they cry, God wipes the tears away, and comforts them. I just learned that God knows that we are hurting, and He says "I am here. Climb into my lap, and let all your tears out.".

"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." Psalm 34:18

" 'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future'." Jeremiah 29:11

"I am worn out from groaning; all night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears. My eyes grow weak with sorrow; they fail because of all my foes." Psalm 6:6-7

How people fall:

Almost every Christian thinks that their faith is steady, until they start slipping from God. Either they are mad at Him for taking someone they love away, or they haven't spent any or enough time with Him.

But He is ALWAYS there, right next to you. Now matter where you are or what you are doing. If you are eating, praying, reading, surfing the Internet,or even talking with your boy/girlfriend.

"Come now, let us reason together." Isaiah 1:18

"Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise." James 5:13

Whatever problems you have or if you have any requests, take them to Him.

"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying on all the saints." Ephesians 6:18

"I can do all things through Him who gives me strength." Philippians 4:13
