I'm OK!

So my daughter was dancing today.  She was doing a new combination and THUD!  The floor happens.  She did a whole body slam.  Nice bruise.

So what can you learn from this?

Don't stay down.

Get up and say, "I'm OK."

Well, that's what my daughter does.  But here's her secret.  SHE REALLY MEANS IT!

Hebrews 12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,

Perseverance is tough.  But you're going to need it.  It isn't easy or even safe to place your faith in Christ.  But it is necessary when you face challenges that you cannot conquer.  When you fall down, you will get up!  Did it hurt?  Sure it did! Was it humbling?  Probably.  But get up!  Don't stay down!  Or you'll lose out on the next great thing that God has in store for you.  

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, I want to persevere today.  I want to get up when I fall down.  AMEN
