On a spiritual side, I have fallen many times. I have let temptation get the best of me and I always end up flat on my face asking God to help me get up. Some of those sins and falls have been private where only God and myself know about them. Others have been done in front of or to others. Those are the ones that I tend to remember the most. They are the ones that involve the most humiliation. Those are the times I have to ask God to not only help me get up but to help me deal with the embarrassment of having done it in front of others. Many times it has involved going to somebody and trying to make it right. It is ironic, I can't remember all the times others have had to apologize to me; but I remember each time I have had to ask forgiveness from others.
I am so thankful that God is always there to put me back on my feet. I am thankful that he restores my spirit. I am thankful He shows me what I must do to make things right when my falls have involved others.
Do you remember your falls? Do you tend to remember the times you have sinned in front of or to others? Have you turned to God to pick you up and restore your soul? If you haven't, it is never too late!
The Lord upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down.
