Get back up

Failure. I've been reminded over and over again of how often I fail in my struggle against the flesh. I'm also reminded what a lovely name I have...Grace. How do those even remotely go together? Under the law, Failure=death. But living with the grace of God in our perspective, there is room for failure. Grace does not embrace failure, but offers forgiveness instead. In Christ we are forgiven and righteous, as God looks on us and sees nothing but His perfect Son. Struggle is just plainly a part of walking the narrow road. But when the flesh fails and you fall down, under the grace of God, you get back up. If your heart is filled with fear and you fall, grace allows you to get back up. If you face disaster and heartbreak and you fall, under grace you can get back up. Get back up!
