Jh.12:24 (GW) I can guarantee this truth: A single grain of wheat doesn’t produce anything unless it is planted in the ground and dies. If it dies, it will produce a lot of grain.
If you’re fallen hopelessly to the ground
If you’ve made a loss which threatens your life …
Please understand and do not despair
For a righteous man falls seven times and rises again, but the wicked are overthrown by calamity.
At times we might fall to rise higher
At times we might lose some battles to win the war
“You can’t travel the road to success without a puncture or two” (*1)
Moreover, “People are not remembered by how few times they failed, but by how often they succeed” (*2)
Please Get up and do not stay down
And do ensure you pick something up!
Lord, each time I wobble and even outright stumble on the journey, for paths of life are full of ups and downs; please uphold and strengthen me to find reason to get up again and not stay down, In Jesus’ name. Amen.
