Sometimes, like little children we forget God, we run off on our own, then, suddenly we fall down. We trip ourselves up, or some event happens and we wonder – “why did that happen to me? What am I supposed to do now?”
The wisest advice is to assess where you are. Are you down on your face? Are you on your knees? Are you in pain? Are there tears?
It’s at times like these that we need to praise God, because we are down for a reason: we’re actually where we need to be, humble, hurt and looking up.
Maybe we were going faster than God wanted us to go. Most likely moving in the wrong direction. Maybe we failed to be repentant and humble.
So what would you rather have, lots of small stumbles or one terribly hard crash?
