God has been dealing with me on these things and teaching me so much. I know that neither shame nor guilt is from Him. Today, I was blessed by a song. With these thoughts fresh on my mind, I set to cleaning up and put on my i-pod while doing so. The song by Chris Rice called "Untitled Hymn" (Come to Jesus) came on, and the words went straight to my soul:
And like a newborn baby,
Don't be afraid to crawl,
And remember when you walk sometimes we fall...
so Fall on Jesus,
Fall on Jesus,
Fall on Jesus and live.
I'm going to fall. The question is, "What am I going to do when I fall?" Oh that the answer would always be to go straight to my Jesus and let him help me up!
I hope that listening to this song will bless you as much as it has blessed me today!
