Setbacks

Everyone falls down at some point in life

For different reasons

But because of the mission ahead

It may be a mission to get home

Or to  pick up a child from school

Or to go to work

Or to see a friend or visit a family member

We get back up again

Falling down does not stop us from moving forward with our journey

It should not cripple us

We raise up and walk again

Even if with a wobble

We keep moving on

 

True, there are setbacks in life

Events out of our control

Obstacles to our goals and mission

Difficult seasons

Overwhelming moments

It seems easier to fold, hide and stay in a fatal position

We must raise up friends

There is

A mission and a purpose to fulfil

A message

A book

A poem

A song

A person in need of help

A person to encourage

That is why we must get back again.

Proverbs 24:16  (NIV)

 for though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again,
    but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes.
