My encouragement to you this week is don't be afraid to fall pursuing your goals. You can always get up. You must get up! God won't quit on you ever so don't you ever do it to yourself! Don't walk in fear. Walk in faith of God's perfect plan for you!
Decisions, decisions, decisions. We all have to make decisions in life. And one of the hardest decisions ironically for many of us is whether we should get up after we fall. Sounds trivial and like an easy decision but it is actually one of the hardest decisions we have to make ever. When we fall, it hurts. Think when we are running and we fall. We have to get over the pain. Sometimes we have to get over the embarrassment of who saw me fall afterwards.
Those two obstacles get to us in life. Let's address the first one: The Pain. The pain of falling can seem unbearable at times. We all hate falling too. I hate it. That means I have lost my balance. We hate losing our balance in life. We like when we have that balance in life, naturally. We have this sense of peace because we get the balance of our life. But when that balance is taken from us, it hurts to fall. The next question, and yes it is question for some of us, do we try and get up? Or do we stay on the floor? Get up. That is always the answer. It is so easy to wanna stay where you are. Get up. You must get up. When you stay down, you have impeded profess. Period. You have to rise up. God didn't make you weak or put a spirit of weakness in you. He put more power in you than you can even imagine.
Don't walk in fear of falling again. It will hurt again but don't let fear stop you from anything! Fear is not made for you. Anytime you want to do something for yourself, it comes with challenges. The challenge may seem almost unbearable. But don't be fearful. Take the falls. Take the loss of peace and press forward with your goal in mind. Keep chasing God to get your goal. Don't stop until you are blessed and don't let go until you are blessed by God. Don't give up on God because He will never give up on you. Like the song says: "God is able to do just what He said He would do. He's gonna fulfill every promise to you." Sure enough God will. May take some time but God will. Rely on God. Not on man. It is good to struggle with others who will build you up in faith. But you rely on God to get you where you want to end up.
God has a plan for you. But quitting does not get you there. Fear will not get you there. Being afraid to fall again will not get you there. It will happen. A baby takes months to learn to walk. They fall many times but they don't stop until they learn to walk. Like a baby, they have someone watching them as they walk to make sure they don't fall and hurt too badly. Think of God. The Father who is watching us as we walk to our goals. God the Father who watches us as we walk try to make sure our fall isn't to bad but understanding we have to fall to learn to walk correctly...Be Blessed...
