Judges 7:9 (NIV) During that night the Lord said to Gideon, “Get up, go down against the camp, because I am going to give it into your hands.
What do you do when you lose a job? a dream? hope? Do you freeze? Are you unable to move, think, or function? Maybe you spiral downward into destructive self-pity. Whatever you do, don’t stay down there!
I recommend you take steps to make your disappointment and pain work for you. These emotions have energy behind them; so direct them into something positive in your life.
Over fifty times in the Bible people are told to “get up!” So do something, anything, set some goals, register for a class, gather friends together to pray, go help someone else, the possibilities are endless. Start with the easy tasks and work your way to those that are harder.
Point to ponder- Remember to Get up! If you spiral down, you only compound your loss. If you move amidst and through your situation, you can turn your disappointment and pain inside out. It’s the first step in the right direction. Happy Friday!!
