Inspirational Quote “A Person Who Falls and Gets Back up is…”

I liked this quote as soon as I read it.  When learning anything in life, whether it be a new skill or navigating the waters of a life trauma, in my case and unwanted divorce, these are times when we may regress or seem to go backward.  These are the times we might make a wrong turn or sadly give up.

After being lied to or betrayed, we may react in a way that is not our norm.  We may make decisions based on fear and uncertainty.  We may fall, and I did.  My first reaction to this devastation in my life was to give up.  So in that regard I fell, I momentarily forgot that God has my back and that I needed to hold tightly to his promises.  It took me a while but I came around:-)

If you do or did fall because of your fear and uncertainty, don’t kick yourself.  We are human and make mistakes.  I believe God understands the depth of our pain and holds us close to Him even in our uncertainty.

I believe that when we do get back up that we have learned from our experience.  We are not only stronger because of it, but we now have the tools to help others.

Thank You, God

Hi, I am a mom, nana, and writer living in the beautiful state of NC. I was married for 37 years and then blindsided by my husband, a former pastor. After decades he filed for legal separation without a word to me. It has been a rough road coming to terms with this new life that has been chosen for me. My blog is a place where I share "The Beginning," this place I found myself, a place I did not want to be. "The Journey," the things we need to do as we traverse this new road. Lastly "The Joy," and yes there is still joy to be found even after great pain. I have finished my first book "My Story My Divorce God's Promise, The Beginning." I am in the process of writing The Journey and The Joy. Please join me on my adventure to a new life. Always remember God's Promise "I will never leave you or forsake you."
