When we struggle

Getting up


As King Solomon said, “A righteous person falls seven times and gets up” (Proverbs, 24:16).


7 is not an actual number. 7 just means many.


All we do is get blown over by life. Life hits us from all angles all the time. It never stops, until you die.


Sounds morbid. But honestly, would we have it any other way? We are not here in life to be comfortable, contrary to secular beliefs. In fact some of the beliefs out there are just that! Getting comfortable IS the goal! It is unattainable and dangerous actually, it also I believe sets one up for a life of dissatisfaction.


Go to school, get an amazing degree, so you can make enough money and be comfortable...


Get a house...so you can be comfortable.
