Watching my daughter grow up every day is a rewarding and joyous experience. It seems everyday she has something new going on that always amazes me. The joys of motherhood! 😁.
As my daughter was learning to stand and walk I must have aged a thousand years! :D. I felt very proud of her when she learnt to stand and when she took her first steps. But the road to those milestones wasn’t smooth! I don’t know how many times she fell and hurt herself. Just this morning she fell and hit her head…so many tears! It isn’t easy to watch your baby go through this, you just want to protect them from the pain. Fortunately, the tears shed are only for a moment. After falling, hurting herself, crying, she gets up and starts again!
She wouldn’t, infact we all wouldn’t be able to stand and walk by ourselves if we hadn’t pushed on as babies. So it is in our adult lives. Things or people or situations we find ourselves in knock us down. We’re hurt, we cry, we want to give up… but let’s not give in.
Get up when you fall or are knocked down. Keep pushing on! You are stronger than you think! You are stronger than what people think.
Proverbs 24:16 NKJV
For a righteous man may fall seven times And rise again, But the wicked shall fall by calamity.
I Corinthians 16:13 NKJV
Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.
