Learning to Fall

When we were born, none of us knew how to walk. We were each totally dependent on our parents to care for us.

As we grew, we began to crawl; which meant falling on our faces and getting hurt, but we needed to keep trying.

Once we mastered the art of crawling, then came the fun part.


We would try to stand and ultimately fall on our behinds.

But, with the caring and guiding hand of our Mama or Daddy, we would slowly begin to take our first steps.

And over the course of time, we got our balance and began to take even bigger steps.

As we got older, we learned how to run; resulting in even more falls and maybe even broken bones.

But that's how we learn.

God will sometimes let us fall, only to prove that he can help us stand up.

In this life, we are going to fall and fail helplessly. But it is learning to fall that will help us learn to get back up- by trusting in God's guiding hand.

So, the next time you fall, don't be upset or angry with God. Instead thank him for showing you that He is the one that can help you stand.


He lifted me out of the pit of despair, and out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along.

Psalms 40: 2 (NLT)
