Fall Here We Come

Hi, Terri Reed here. Today's the last day of summer for us. It already feels like fall, the weather has turned cold and rainy. Though the kids don't go back to school until next week, its time to prepare(buy school supplies, school clothes, get lockers and schedules) and have our last weekend without homework or practices. I'm excited to get back to the routine of school, mostly for my writing schedule. I have a book due soon, the beginning of a new series for me so that is also exciting.
This past Sunday at church our pastor made a statement that has stuck with me all week.
Christianity is not a competitive sport (it isn't a race to see how gets to Heaven first). It is however a contact sport(the world and the enemy will beat you up). But God is the one who is in your corner, encouraging you, picking you up and dusting you off and getting you in shape through His Word, through His Spirit and through the lives of other believers.
So when the bell rings, go out into the fight knowing that God is in your corner.
