I Fall Down

I fall down......
In my words......
In my actions.......

I fall down in my thoughts......
In my wants.....
In my needs.......
My intentions.

In my relationships.....
Past and present.......
I fall down.

Romans 3:23
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. 

 The positive to this;I realize I am not perfect.
I do and will make mistakes in life.
I may cringe when I do.....
And at times I may carry the guilt of my down falls.

My inter self tries hard to have a field day stomping all over my emotions......
Softly telling me what an idiot I am......
Screaming how careless and ridiculous I have been.....
Taunting me with " You will never get it" syndrome.

I know I will stumble in this life......
In my words .that are meant to encourage or push but yet may hurt instead.
In my actions, that are meant to be uplifting  but yet may cause pain.

I am learning to not beat myself up when I do fall....
 I am learning to apologize quicker.....
Repent often.
I know as much as the enemy would like for me to believe I am the ONLY one who falls, it's not so. 
I am no exception to the falling short........
We all fall short.

Psalm 24:16
For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes. 

By knowing who I am in Christ, no matter how many times I fall, I am able to get back up.
I learn and grow. 
I press in and forward. 
I purpose to not be moved from the one who holds on to me.

"On Christ the solid rock I stand. all other ground is sinking sand, I will not be moved"
( Lyrics from " I will not be moved" by Natalie Grant)

Today I read a quote from Joel Osteen.

" When you fall God doesn't love you any less. He loves you more."

Knowing that He loves me regardless and unconditionally, makes the falling in my life more bearable.....
Bearable because as a child of God, I will rise again.

I fall down.......

2 Corinthians 12:9
" And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee; my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."

  2. I fall down, too. And, yes, I have the voices in my head that constantly condemn me. The only way to combat them is to listen to the still, small voice that speaks no condemnation. And then, it is His hand that I grab onto in order to once again stand...
