For the righteous falls seven times and rises again, but the wicked stumble in times of calamity.
We have to come to grips with failure. We all fall. But what defines our character is getting back up. As many times as we get knocked down, we have to find the strength or rely on God’s strength, to get back up. Like a child’s self-righting punching bag, we need to pop back up ready to face the next challenge.
With God, we can draw on His endless supply of strength, dust ourselves off, and continue to press forward.
