Morning Motivation “Trust God to Give You the Strength to Get Back Up Again”

Have you ever failed at anything?  I have.  Have you ever fallen down either physically, or figuratively and felt you did not have the strength to keep on trying? I have.  Have you ever felt lost/confused and just did not have the motivation even to try to get out of the hole you have dug for yourself, or the energy to attempt to get out of the pit in which life has had placed you?  I have. I guess most of us have been in these situations.  But there is good news!  It is a new day and can be a new beginning; we can get back up and keep on trying to be the best we can be.  I find this is only possible with God’s help.  Here are a few sayings to help us pull ourselves up by our bootstraps no matter what is going on in our lives.
“This thing called failure is not the falling down but the staying down.” 
(Author unknown, at least to me.)

(I happen to know the person in the photo, and he did get up and had many triumphant sledding moments after this fall.  He could have given up, but he tried again and was glad that he did:-)

Fall seven times, stand up eight. 
Japanese Proverb
“I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength.”
Philippians 4:12-13

Have a great week everyone!

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."
