Falling

Falling

When we walk in the Light, we won’t stumble in the darkness.

There I was, sailing along on my rollerblades. Suddenly, the wheels on my left boot began to wobble, and a second later I was face down on the asphalt. Just like that, I had a broken finger . This happened ages ago, but the results of that fall are still fresh on my mind. The pain of falling is still with me, making me much more cautious on my rollerblades. Having fallen once, I take every precaution to avoid doing so again. Falling isn’t good. But for anyone who has stumbled in life, something positive can result—if the fall leads to a more careful way of living. How nasty of a fall did I have to go through before finally waking up to the reality of me needing Jesus?! If you have stumbled along the course of life’s journey, there’s hope. First, ask God for guidance, for He “upholds all who fall”, read the Word and begin to live carefully by its principles—“Be transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Rom. 12:2). Have you fallen? Ask God to help you get up and keep from falling again
