It’s difficult to experience existence without tumbling down now and again. We usually experience many of the little ones – the staggers – sometimes even on a daily or weekly basis. Be that as it may, from time to time we fall hard, as well. When we are amidst it all, it might appear to be sad and hopeless and too difficult to get through what’s happening to us. In any case, ask ourselves this: how frequently have we so far tumbled down and been able to get back up again?
The truth of the matter is: we are great at this. What’s more is that we learn so much from a fall. When we tumble down we see our life and the world through different eyes, with a different aspect. And that is the reason, when fallen, we realize who we truly are and where we stand – with the goal that in the long run, when we get back up, we will know precisely where to go or what to do next.
So don’t give up. Surrender to the way that things are what they are, and that they won’t remain the same until the end of time. The universe and we are in consistent development, steady extension and growth. Gain from every viewpoint and circumstance of our life and we will know a wealthier life for it.
Hear my prayer, O Lord;
Listen to my plea!
Answer me because
You are faithful and righteous.
I give my hands to do Your work
I give them willingly.
I give my feet to go Your way
I shall take cheerfully.
I give my eyes to see the world
In just the way You do.
I give my tongue to speak Your words
To spread Your mighty name.
Here I am before You,
Falling in love, seeking Your truth
You’re the only one,
That brings me to my knees.
I give my mind in every way
That You may think in me.
I give my spirit to You
That You may pray in me.
I give You my heart
That You may love in me.
I give You my whole self
That You may grow in me.
So it is You, Lord
Who live and work
And pray in me.
When I think of some people,
And how they act for other’s notice,
The phrase that comes to me is
“Two sides of a coin”.
The side of the coin that’s up is
What they want the world to see:
And that’s faced down is
The hidden part of their identity.
But when the coin is flipped,
The unseen truth will finally be disclosed.
For whether love, joy, or peace;
Or anger or ranklement;
God knows all that’s concealed
In the depths of every heart.
He promises all will be exposed;
And from His promises He’ll never depart.
