"Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure." (Napoleon Hill)...
...hang in there...get back on the horse that threw you off...Proverbs says a just person falls 7 times and gets up again...Paul said you will reap in due season if you don't faint...David encouraged himself in the Lord...my P.E. teacher in 6th grade said to rub some dirt in it and walk it off...
I, even I, am He Who blots out and cancels your transgressions, for My own sake, and I will not remember your sins. Put Me in remembrance [remind Me of your merits]; let us plead and argue together. Set forth your case, that you may be justified (proved right). (Isaiah 43:25, 26 - AMP)

B urself...stop trying 2 please every1 (can't b done)...stay on YOUR path...focus on YOUR journey...don't let some1 sabotage YOUR vision 4 YOUR life or allow ur desire 4 approval 2 hijack u & take u hostage as a prisoner of their opinion, locked n2 their ideas about what u should do, or who u should b...Jesus always knew who He was & never let the Pharisees alter His self-image or change His mind about His purpose...

Bless ur enemies; no cursing under ur breath. Laugh with ur happy frnds when they're happy; share tears when they're down. Get along with each other; don't b stuck-up. Make friends with nobodies; don't b the great somebody. Don't hit back; discover beauty n every1. If u've got it n u, get along wi everybody. Don't nsist on getting... even; that's not 4 u 2 do. "I'll do the judging," says God. "I'll take care of it." (Ro 12:14-19 MSG)

Somehow I heard a lot about person falls 7 times and gets up again even when I was living in Japan. Always, it reminds me that I need to challenge and overcome difficulties without giving up in my daily life!

Every time I hear about the just person who falls 7 times and gets up..well, I silently smile at God because He knows I've fallen more than I can count and He keeps holding out His hand for me to get back up...amazing God we serve..Love beyond measure..Mercy overflowing in an endless supply...truly amazing!

Remind me of your merits...that you may be justified.

I remember the first time I heard you bring up this part of God, Bishop...His wanting to work it out, to wrestle, communicate...even ask Him to change His mind! You've helped me see a part of our friend I had not noticed. I was amazed...and very grateful...and its cool to know that He is too.

And speaking of paths...knowing that my phrase is fitting together with other phrases to form the sentences, paragraphs and books that are CITN's story to the world about His Love...well, that vision is one that makes every step of the journey to get here, and there, soooo worth it for me! Thank you...
