Last weekend I fell down. I was out of town and running important errands. I had a lot on my mind and I was literally driving in circles trying to find this a place I had to deliver a book too.I was not yet late but was worried I would be.
I was extermly excited when I found the place. I parked, rushed out of my car and tripped. I dropped the book to save my head from hitting the concrete, and I caught myself with my hands. I was very shaken up. I am accident prone but not that bad usually. I had come across very few sincerely nice people on my trip. To my surprise I had many people come to my aid. I felt extremely blessed for their kindness and help. When I was able to examine my wounds I saw that my hands were bloody.
I was reminded of Jesus and how he had nails hammered into his hands and I wept. Matthew 27 (whole chapter) And John 3:16 For God So Loved the World, that He gave His only begotten son. So that who soever believes in him shall have everlasting life.
The pain Jesus must have felt I could never imagine. And the blood he spilled for us….. I do not feel worthy of that all the time. I make mistakes, I get mad, I hurt peoples feelings, and mine get hurt as well too.. I have been feeling very low and stressed and though falling and getting hurt is never a good thing, it was for me. I have been worrying to much about my life and the lives of others around me. So much so that it had caused me to fall into depression almost. And falling that day reminded me that no matter how many times I fall, no matter how deep or how much my wounds hurt Jesus is always there to pick us up and help us.
When you are down close your eyes and pray. Ask Jesus, God, for help. And close your eyes and take a deep breath. No matter how bad the situation is God / Jesus / The Holy spirit is always with us.. We just need to lean on Him…. One way we can do that is by reading our Bible and studying the love letter that we were sent. The Bible is our Sword for all our battles.. And when you do not know how to pray it helps us. And when your down praying and studding Give him Praise and Worship for what he has done for us and what he is still doing. BECAUSE no matter how bad the situation / world looks right now. God is working in our behalf to better it. So pick yourself up when you fall, accept Him and his good works, and Sing praises for the good that is coming on our behalf. .
