#DailyProverbs 24:16: "No matter how often honest people fall, they always get up again; but disaster destroys the wicked."

Stop wallowing.

If you do your best, and live for God, and stay honest, and try hard... you might fall. You might fall a lot. You may even feel deserted, neglected, and become hurt. You may have moments where you wonder if God has forsaken you. You aren't alone, and you are in good company. Even Jesus Himself had moments of fear and felt deserted by God.

Many (most) successful people had multiple failures and many times of trial and error before you ever knew of them. Many of the successful inventors and many of our creature comforts were thought of, built and designed by people that died in obscurity and abject poverty. And??

Get up. Srsly. Get up, dry your eyes, wash your face and move on. You are not finished until your last breath is breathed. Are you dead? No? Then you still have a purpose and a chance to fulfill your purpose. YOU don't have to stay in the shape that you are in. YOU don't have to live in your current circumstance and feel left. YOU don't have to accept or buy into the lies that you will never do more or be more than what you are, right now.

You get up, keep going, and try again. You will be fine, and you will one day see the history of success you leave. Never giving up is a form of success within itself.
