Fall?

At the beginning of the year I resolved that when I fell I would get up again.  So far so good.  Yet as I reflect on where I am at right now, I wonder what to do when you recognize that you are about to fall.  Or maybe you have fallen and you just don’t recognize your fallen state…

I haven’t been exercising lately.  I have noticed that when I don’t exercise I tend to eat poorly.  I find myself being more and more tired lately.  I was waiting for this weekend to come so I could sit and veg a little or a lot to be honest.

So maybe I have fallen already.  I know that I need to get up or this hole will get even deeper.  I could use your prayer.

I've tried a couple times to leave a comment but was not sure what to say that would encourage you.

How about, "try, try again" :o) You can't fall anywhere where Christ can't catch you. Really. What I have discovered through my own struggles recently is that I fall into despair when I realize I can't get it right on my own. God's grace just seems too easy, but I'm starting to think that's the beautiful simplicity of it and it's me that's making it complicated by trying to add my own efforts to it.

In the meantime, you've got my prayers... Love, Lisa
