Today (12.4.15) as I was rearranging different items in my closet, one of my winter coats started to fall……..
As I went to try to grab it before it hit the ground, I thought if I try to stop this thing I may hurt myself in the process!! Utilize your creativity and see where I am; I was standing near the frame of the door and there were a few hangers near my leg on my right side as well as my chair that I was utilizing to get to the top shelf to my immediate left, so let’s just say that trying to grab that Gap coat would have been more detrimental than beneficial.. Within a few seconds, my mind shifted to how quickly we can be up one day and down right on our bums the next, so why am I writing today you may be wondering??
EASY, many people are experiencing stages of uncertainty presently; there are those whom are saddened by the lost of loved ones, then you have those whom NEVER had anyone to love from birth because NO one took the time to stick around for them and finally you have those whom have everything under the sun yet they still are incredibly miserable.. As that coat made its way towards the ground, I felt hopeless and then I started to blame myself for allowing such a nice article of clothing to be in such a less than satisfactory position, friends L.I.F.E happens and we have the choice to either stay down or get back up daily!! When my coat was on the floor, I also started to think about people I meet daily and how they freely share their stories with mii..
Some stories are so heart wrenching that I spend time going over their problems in my own head, forgetting my own issues, but you want to know the stories I like the most?? It’s the ones where people have fallen over and over but they pull themselves back up again.. The Bible says this about the Righteous who falls, “The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again. But one disaster is enough to overthrow the wicked.” Proverbs 24: 16
NOW, I am speaking to someone who is struggling at this Moment –
Whatever you are going through today, this week, this past month etc. know that even when you are Falling, have Fallen, Fell down, you can and will get back up but you have to know it in your mind, heart and soul.. There are sooooooooo many promises in the Bible such as Jeremiah 29:11 (which happens to be one of my favorites – sorry if I am being redundant with this one but it really gives mii a ton of hope – AmEn) Hebrews 11:1 re: the Faith we NEED to Proceed, you can even find strength and courage to go on through a simple passage such as Psalms 1; especially, where it says to stand still – see in standing still we receive instruction that we otherwise would NOT have received had we been running to and fro….
I hope you have seen some light in your situation in reading this message, I want to leave you with this last verse(s) which I debated with my self about sharing but I see how it comes together and I know that GoD is going to help each of you today as HE helped mii to write this for HIS Edification..
Love You ALL Alwayz,
