Stop Falling, Start Rising
To fall you must have been on higher ground. To rise, you must have been on lower ground. If you are failing and falling, there is a reason. A decision was taken by you or by someone else and that decision is affecting your life, your stability. The experience of falling and failing is to be used as a catapult to new heights. Rise again each time you fall. Concentrate on the rise and not on the fall. You may need help and that’s ok. It’s ok to ask for help, to recognize one’s weaknesses, one’s needs. If you find help to renew your journey, strength to rise, whatever its shape or form, it comes from one source – the One by whom we “live, move and have our being” (Read Acts 17:24-27). Take hold of God’s gift by trusting in Him, and DO NOT WORRY! We can not change anything by worrying. Trust God, learn of Him from His Word, He is meek and compassionate, always forgiving, always present, caring and sustaining, and you will have strength to share with others. As you share with others, you rise! You rise above your failures and you keep your heart and mind on Jesus, the invisible One, your Savior and life support. With Jesus, if you fall, hold on to Him, you will rise again!
