Ellie is a PRO on skates! She never takes them off and if we weren’t worried about her knocking her brother on the head in the middle of the night, she’d sleep in them. She falls alot but she always gets back up. We encourage Ellie to always get back up and finish strong no matter how many times she falls. There are some falls when she needs us to take her by the hand and help her up off the ground. Some falls require that she takes a break, rest or heal. In other moments we hold her hand as she skates to help prevent a fall. We never tell her she fell too hard, fell one too many times or took a fall too big to fix. We say “You will get back up. You will Finish strong!”
Is God saying this to each of us? Get back up. Finish strong.
“Though I have fallen I will rise though I sit in darkness the lord will be my light.” Micah 7:8
