“Everybody falls, but staying down is a choice. You can choose to GET UP AGAIN.“

Happy Friday Saints.

Proverbs 24:16 “A RIGHTEOUS PERSON WILL FALL SEVEN TIMES, AND THEN GET UP AGAIN.”

Everybody makes mistakes and falls now and then. Nobody gets it right 100% of the time.

Mistakes and failures are not final. They are not the end of your story. And although they can be difficult to bear, they can provide you with wisdom, understanding, and experiences that are essential to moving forward.

What’s more important than failing are the lessons that would not have been gained any other way. And in this sense, the mistakes and failures have actually positioned you to do better.

God’s people may FALL SEVEN TIMES, but with His help, they will always GET UP AGAIN.

Maybe this week hasn’t gone the way you expected it to go. Maybe this month has been one you’d rather forget. Perhaps 2023 has been the worst year of your life – YOU CAN GET UP AGAIN.

Maybe you’ve fallen 777 times, and you feel like quitting. The Apostle Paul said in 2Corinthians 4:9 that He was “STRUCK DOWN BUT NOT DESTROYED.” Everybody falls, but staying down is a choice. You can choose to GET UP AGAIN.

Your life’s not over. You may have been struck down, but you haven’t been destroyed. GET UP AGAIN. Learn what you can and then use those lessons to do things differently. Use the wisdom that you’ve gained to be better and do better.

Pray and trust the Lord to help you GET UP AGAIN and give you what you need to keep pressing forward.

Look straight ahead and do whatever is necessary to finish November and the rest of 2023 STRONG.

Have a great weekend.

God bless, and lots’a love,
Warren
