Get Up and Try Again

JOSHUA 1-9.jpg
“…Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9

“When things go wrong do not think that all your efforts were in vain. Maybe it was all for the better; so smile … and try again!

It may be that your apparent failure becomes a magic door that will lead to a new happiness that you have never known before.

You may be weakened by the fight, but, do not consider yourself a loser … This does not mean defeat.

It is not worth wasting precious time in tears and sorrow. Stand up and face life again … and if you keep in mind the most important goal, your dreams will come true …

Learn from your mistakes, reap experiences from your pain, so one day you will say :
– Thank God , I dared to try again!”

– Unknown author, “Experimente Outra Vez” Original text in Portuguese

“God knows our situation; He will not judge us as if we had no difficulties to overcome. What matters is the sincerity and perseverance of our will to overcome them. We all want progress, but if you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive. What saves a man is to take a step. Then another step.”

– C.S. Lewis

Please God, give us the courage to get up and try again. That we may learn the best way is not always the most apparent choice. That we learn to seek you and listen to your voice, not only today but always. Amen!
