Pick yourself up and walk!


Pick yourself up and walk!
- Unknown -

The path to your God-given destiny will have different challenges, so you must expect them or rather … you must prepare yourself to face them.

Why does the Bible record the failures of great men like Abraham, Moses, Elijah and Peter?

To give you hope; to let you know that nobody performs flawlessly; to help you believe if they can do it, by God’s grace you can too.

The road to success, even in ministry,  has many potholes.

You’ll fall into some – and they’re messy.

Not only will you have to climb back out, you’ll have to dust yourself off, refocus, recommit,
and keep going.

Since failure is inevitable, why not make it your friend….by examining each experience and growing stronger through it !

Once you learn to do that, you won’t keep repeating the same mistakes, and more importantly you’ll become more emotionally and spiritually stable.

Timelines change, resources dry up, assumptions prove false, plans and people fail.

As you walk the pathway to your God-given dream,

remember the old Italian proverb: ‘Between saying and doing, many a pair of shoes is worn out.’
Just make sure you don’t wear out and give up.

Here’s God’s promise to you today: ‘Keep travelling steadily along His pathway and in due season He will honour you with every blessing.’ (Psalm 37:34)
