Get Up and Live
By: Denise N. Fyffe
While life is for living, we must find a way to live fully; actively taking control of the experience and responsibility for everything that happens.
Only then will we be able to learn from and move on from the bad parts.
Do not let the bad experiences get you so down that you forget to get up and take a step forward.
Remaining stagnant, will only weaken you and leave you vulnerable for more attacks.
The best warriors know that you have to learn from your past mistakes and plan better strategies to counter and destroy the enemy in the future. So do not dwell too long in the past. Neither remain on your back.
Pick yourself up and move forward.
Remaining on your back is for the dead, not for the living – and not for the triumphant.
I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. – John 16:33 (NIV)Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. – 1 Timothy 6:12 (NIV)Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. – 1 Peter 5:8 (NIV)
But you, Lord, are a shield around me,
my glory, the One who lifts my head high. – Psalm 3:3 (NIV)
But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. – 1 Corinthians 15:57 (NIV)
