I went to work yesterday building Brooklyn’s swing set in the backyard and boy were my arms tired. I tackled the project in the morning knowing that it was going to take me sometime to assemble it all.
I began by reading the instructions and studying them step by step and trying to analyze the pictures. After feeling pretty confident I started building and building and building. I had to keep stopping the building project in order to disassemble certain parts because I had done it all wrong. I found myself trying to follow the instructions but falling short of being able to perfectly build it all in the first try. After several attempts of building it, and the swing set nearly killing me , I was finished three and a half hours later.
God has given us this amazing book called the “Bible” and the Bible is our instructions for our life here on earth. Sometimes when we try to follow it for Godly living we can find our selves stumbling along the journey. There might have even been times when you had a few set backs and had to go through something all over again just to get it right.
In our journey with God, no matter how close to God we are, we will experience set backs, failures, and short comings, but it’s His loving Grace that carries us through those times. The Bible says that “The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again”. No matter what difficulties or set backs you have experienced in this journey, just remember one thing, get back up and keep going!
Proverbs 24:16 (NLT) The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again
keep it burning…
