If a person can ONLY think the worst of you then know that they ALWAYS thought the worst of you.

How I respond to a thing is demonstrative of who I am… how I grow from that same thing is a testament to who I am to be.
You have to fall off the bike as a part of learning how to ride. It’s from getting back on that you really learn to ride, and the hurt from the initial fall that imposes the need for you not to WANT to fall ever again.

Sometimes you have to embrace everything GOD has seen fit to give you, including your trials.

My past is jealous of my future, which is why it won’t leave me alone. But the witness of GOD is with OPENED EYES to see that it’s only through a NEW HEART that He is FOUND… and with NEW eyes and an OPEN HEART He is MET.
Life becomes more qualified with the surrender and more quantified with the embrace.

It’s from getting back on that you really learn to ride, and the hurt from the initial fall that imposes the need for you not to WANT to fall ever again. Sometimes you have to embrace everything GOD has seen fit to give you, including your trials.
