"The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD:
and he delighteth in his way.
Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down:
for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand."
Psalm 37:23-24
Get Up! Start Over!

We all have times throughout our daily lives when we may feel a little "down" or we may become discouraged over a previous encounter. In unguarded moments, we stumble and fail by yielding to something that we know is not right. We are just human. But have you ever heard the saying, "When life hands you lemons, MAKE LEMONADE!"?

 When we are down and out of sorts with ourselves, and all is going wrong around us, we need to GET UP, shake ourselves off, and START OVER! There is something far worse than falling down! That is staying down! If you are a Christian, you will not be content to "stay down" ~ you will want to be restored!

 Not one of us is exempt from sin. But when we admit our failures and ask God for His forgiveness, He restores us. Once restored, we GET UP and START OVER! God knows our struggles and our failures . . . everyone of them! And He waits for us to seek His guidance in all of them.

 Before Jesus went to the cross for us, He knew that we would continue to struggle with sin, so He made provision for our daily cleansing. He made it possible for us to make a fresh start each day by taking time to confess our sins, to admit our weaknesses, our failures, and to ask God for His strength to do what He wants us to do. As we depend on the Lord's grace and strength, we become aware of what victory is. Then, and only then, will we be able to truly GET UP and START OVER!

Start your day God's way!
