I pray that you are all blessed and highly favored of
our Lord Jesus Christ. And that you are growing spiritually.
Proverbs 24:16, For though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again, but the wicked are brought down by calamity.
I was talking to my oldest son the other day and he told me that when he looks at my life, he is able to be encouraged. You know sometimes it takes a real person, someone not famous to look at and say to yourself, "I can do that, I can make it".
You see my oldest son and daughter were with me when I lost my apartment due to drugs. They were with me when I had to give them to family members because I had to go to rehab center. They can recall the times that lights were off. Even though I had a great job, it went to drugs. They can recall watching me get abused by ex.
When I left Chicago to move to Vegas, I had a servant of the Lord spirit. I was used to teaching bible study and ministering every other week in church. But when I got to Vegas, that all went out the window. I enjoyed those darn slot machines. I lost sight of my Lord Jesus. I would say that I had definitely fallen again.
Each time that you fall down, get back up stronger. Let that fall mean something. Each time that I fell, it seemed to me that I got stronger and stronger. The Lord lifted me higher and higher. The way that you can get stronger is because you grab a hold of Jesus a little bit tighter, just touch the hem of His garment. The next time you fall down, let that fall mean something, get back even stronger. Put up your dukes and say to the devil, "Is that all you got?" A just man/woman falls 7 times.
Jesus is my BFF and I won't unfriend Him and He won't unfriend you. PRAISE GOD!
