Sometimes you wait your ENTIRE life for a movie….and it does not disappoint. I seriously could feel my spirit smiling throughout. It was so fabulous. Truly. Go take your babies. Trust me.
Only one small cameo (that she turned down) would have been the icing on Cherry Tree Lane. We missed you Julie Andrews…
But the very BEST part happens on the way home. You see a car pulled over by police officers. A conversation begins about choices, drunk driving, the recent loss of a police officer with a young family on Christmas Eve….all because of choices.
Then the conversation turns to our witness, stumbling blocks, peer pressure and temptation.
Then it turns to WHO tempts us.
Friends, God never tempts us. Only Satan. God tests us.
And Scripture tells us that anytime we are tempted, God provides a way out. Always. If we believe Scripture to be true, then we must claim this as truth as well.
Feeling tempted? Look around. Look for the way out. God has provided one. Always.
“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. 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 out so that you can endure it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13
So, while I started the early part of the evening thankful for the gift of movie gift cards, I ended it thankful for conversations that happen in the dark quiet of the ride home.
