Get Back Up

Proverbs 24:16a (NLT) The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again.

There will be setbacks in our life. Our plans may have a glitch in them before we even get started. Something we’ve almost completed may require us to start back over from square one. A special relationship may end. The new job you thought you wanted doesn’t work out like you hoped it would. Stuff happens that makes us feel like we’re failures. But we cannot allow ourselves to believe that lie. There are lessons in those disappointing moments that can motivate us to make changes and take a chance again. Setbacks will defeat us if we give up, and setbacks can help us go forward with more insight if we get up. No matter how many times they fall - with time and tenacity - wobbly babies get back up repeatedly until they learn how to walk. No matter how many times we may fall, if we continue to get back up – we have a pretty good chance of accomplishing our goals.
