all who are falling

The Lord is faithful in all his words,
    and gracious in all his deeds.
14 The Lord upholds all who are falling,
    and raises up all who are bowed down.

(Psalm 145: 13b-14)

I read this passage earlier this morning.  then started feeling like I was failing in my attempts to do my studies.  And I went to read this passage again and it occurred to me that I am falling, as I feel I am failing.  And those who are falling, God will uphold because God is faithful and gracious.

I’m failing.  I’m falling.  But,

It’s not about me.  It’s about God loving me first and me loving God back.

So I have a deadline which seems nearly impossible to meet as I haven’t made much progress in past two days.  I do feel anxious.  I do feel like I am failing.

but the saints are those who fall and get up, and the saints keep marching on!  If God would uphold me even as I’m falling and failing, I will try again today to make some progress on my writing!!!
