I will not fall…..
Steps are hard now on my knees and ankles. There are many times I’m not sure if I will make it up them. Going down is a lot easier on me than going up.
Tonight while I was going up the steps, I noticed the further I went up the harder it was. I almost caught myself singing, “I think I can, I think I can!” You know life is so much like that.
When we are young we do not realize how easy life is. We take each day, each step, not worrying about tomorrow. As we grow older, each day and each step gets harder. We worry more, we can barely put one foot in front of the other.
Psalm 37:23-24 is so refreshing. I may stumble, BUT I WILL NOT FALL. As the verse says, The Lord upholds him with His hands or as the kids say nowadays “He has my back”!!
Each day is full if it’s own problems, it’s own stumbles. BUT I’m so glad to know someone has my back. I pray I can keep this in mind when going up is so tough. Going up that mountain can be hard, but I know who has my back.
I know I’m going to stumble daily but my hope is knowing I have someone waiting to hold on to me and keep me from falling. I want the faith that is that strong to fall in His arms and know He will catch me.
