If you fall, Get back up..

Judges 3:7-9 "So the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord. They forgot the Lord their God .... Therefore the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel and He sold them into the hand of Cushan-Rishathaim King of Mesopotamia, and the children of Israel served Cushan-Rishathaim eight years. When the children of Israel cried out to the Lord, the Lord raised up a deliverer for the children of Israel, who delivered them".

I think this is a great message tonight. However it does follow the passing passages that I have recently shared. Going back to the term "Courage", and what Mark Cuban said .. "It doesn't matter how many times you fail. It doesn't matter how many times you almost get it right. No one is going to know or care about your failures, and neither should you. All you have to do is learn from them and those around you because... All that matters in business is that you get it right once. Then everyone can tell you how lucky you are."

Austin O'Malley said, "The fact that you have been knocked down is interesting, but the length of time you remain down is important". In life, you will have problems. Are you going to give up and stay down, wallowing in your defeat, or are you going to get back on your feet as quickly as you can? When you fall, make the best of it and get back on your feet. learn what you can from your mistake, and then get back in the game. View your errors the way Henry Ford did his. He said, "Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently".

  1. I love this post Mr.Waldron. Failing is something we will never get away from. But I think what makes a person brave is getting up and learning from their "mistake"... We all make 'em but I think what defines a person is what they make from it. We can either grow from it or sink deeper into it. I think getting back up from the fall is courageous alone. Learning from your fall key. God see's everything before it happens and I think he allows certain things in our lives so that we can choose to Trust in Him and learn from the "mistake".
    What makes me get back up from the fall is knowing that God is in control of the situation
    and things will work out for the better for those who believe. Although its tough, knowing that something better will work out in the end is more than enough to help me get up.
