Today Reminder – 23 June 2014 (Day 16 – Stand up)

A reminder for today
Take control of what I say, O LORD, and guard my lips. (Psalm 141:3)

When we have fallen, do we accept our mistakes or do we go into blame mode? You see a lot of us fall by our own mistakes but we are too proud to see our own faults and then we start to blame. We shift the blame out of our own insecurities so that we can feel better about ourselves and maybe even free from the reason for our fall. We become blinded by our own inabilities as we seek to place the blame on other. We become cold and irritated and we start to say things that we shouldn’t. Our words become our weapon of destruction as we begin to hurt people for our own mistakes.

When we rise from the place where we have fallen we should rise a better person with gained knowledge and a better foundation. When we stand up we should stand on Jesus as the foundation from where we start. We should not seek vengeance and destroy other for our own mistakes. When we allow Jesus to become our starting block let us also ask Him to control what we say and guard our lips. 

Why do we need to break down when in Jesus we can rebuild. It does not matter in the end who made the mistake and who made you fall. It is how we stand up again and how we rebuild on the correct foundation. We are more with Jesus and we are stronger by His forgiveness and the very forgiveness we give and accept. We cannot carry on if we do not forgive ourselves. You cannot keep on blaming yourself when Jesus has already taken you burden for you. If you continue in that way you are a hypocrite and you go against the very core of our religion. Jesus is all love and all forgiveness. 

Live and rebuild by it. 

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
