    Are You Easily Tempted?

    Girls, have you ever felt like temptation is everywhere? Well, that’s because it is–but you have the tools to fight back against it!

    Temptation is a sub-theme of my upcoming novel, Freeing Tanner Rose. And I feature the following verse:

    There has no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that you are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it (1 Corinthians 10:13).

    This means God would never allow us to be tempted without the strength to successfully resist. How amazing is that?

    I remember one time in high school, a boy–who I thought was cute!–asked me out. I wasn’t allowed to date until I was 17, but I found myself thinking of ways I could still go out with him without my mother knowing.

    I could have finagled it. My mother trusted me to go out with my friends, so I could have pretended I was with them. But I then realized that if my mother did find out–and moms always have a way of finding out, don’t they?– that trust would be gone, and so would my freedom. It just wasn’t worth it! I told the boy the truth. And he was fine with it.

    All temptation can be resisted. It may not be easy, but it is possible. And that possibility lies in God’s strength and unconditional love.

    But that doesn’t mean that Satan won’t stop trying. For as long as people succumb to temptation, Satan will continue to tempt us all.

    Don’t forget, ladies, that even our own Savior Jesus Christ was tempted in the desert by the devil:

    I urge you to stand strong against temptation. Call upon God to help you find the strength, and walk away from it. You can do it! God made sure of it and He is faithful!

    What ways do you feel that you’re tempted? Do you give in to those temptations or do you struggle to fight them?
