Though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand. Psalm 37:24
If you read this blog regularly, you know I began a ’40 days with God’ reading plan and I am posting my journey. If you’re not a regular here, God bless you for visiting and I pray you’ll return.
One of the many things the Lord has been helping me work through is my tendency to get frustrated, get down on myself and give up accomplishing my goal. It’s an area I have struggled with all of my life. I am supportive, forgiving and understanding when it comes to everyone -but me.
As soon as I began the 40 days with God posting journey, the enemy starting doing what he does best – throw all kinds of obstacles in my path. And I did what I’ve always done, got side-tracked and frustrated. But God wouldn’t allow me to give up.
This time, He kept playing and rewinding Donnie McClurkin’s song inside my head. I couldn’t stop humming and singing it and I didn’t know why I couldn’t get this song off my mind.
Then it hit me! The devil is a liar if he thinks he’s going to win this time. I’m not giving up, not giving in. Yes, I fell down and missed a few self-imposed posting deadlines, but, as the song says I can’t stay there.
This time I’m going to ‘Get Back Up Again.’
