A while ago in my Facebook page I wrote something that just came up in my head after going through a HUGE humiliation. Okay, maybe I should start from the beginning, I'm an EXTREMELY shy person and I have the biggest stage fright. Now when I say big, I mean BIG, I freeze up, I stop doing what I'm supposed to be doing, unless there's someone there with me.
A week ago we had an event at my church called 'I love you seriously' and I was chosen to sing, I practiced everyday, I memorized the whole song. When the time came to perform, I froze! I got all mixed up, didn't know what I was saying, and yes, almost jumped out of the stage. It was the most embarrassing moment in my life! I couldn't look at any one, (mind you that the place was PACKED!), it was horrible. So yes, I went to where my mom was at and sat with her, everyone was telling me I did great, but inside I knew I didn't.
While sitting with my mom though, God told me something, 'We fall it's okay it happens, but what cant happen is staying on the ground, So get up, brush off the dirt and start walking', after that I felt a total relief, yeah I still felt humiliated (hey I'm human), but i thought, 'hey so what, i messed up but it doesn't mean I'm going to give up'.
Sometimes in life we go through something so bad, so hard that we just want to give up, we just want to stay on the ground and not get up. DON'T! God didn't put you in the position that your in for you to give up, He didn't give you that special talent, or the life that your in, or even a privileged that you have, for you to just give it up. He gave it to you because (believe it or not), He knows that you can do it. It doesn't matter if it's hard, Live with it! keep your head up, and keep going, and if you fall well, hey, your only human, but don't stay on the ground, get up! Dust yourself up and keep on walking. In the end of your walk you'll see a light, and that light might just be what you have been waiting for, And during you walk if you get tired just remember this verse:
Do you not know ? Have you not heard ? The Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth Does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable . He gives strength to the weary, And to him who lacks might He increases power. Though youths grow weary and tired, And vigorous young men stumble badly, Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength ; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary. Isaiah 40:28-31
God is always with us, so don't worry.
