“For the righteous falls seven times and rises again, but the wicked stumble in times of calamity.” Proverbs 24:6
What separates someone who succeeds from someone who lives in failure, isn’t the failure itself; it’s how they respond to it. When we walk with Jesus and keep our eyes focused upwards, we know that we can get back up when we fall down. When we fail, we need to try again.
If you’re struggling with failure right now, try again. Don’t let failure, or the fear of falling down again, keep you from trying. Trust Jesus and get back up.
Jesus, when I fall down, help me get back up. Help me to rise again when I fail and fall short Lord. Amen.
