Free Samples

Sometimes life knocks us down. Correction… Most of the time life knocks us down. Some of us spend more time on the ground or the floor than we do standing upright, and we have no explanation for it. So why do some of us keep getting up again? Why do some of us just stay down so we don’t have so far to fall?

There’s a little line in my head from Only Grace by Matthew West

Get back up
Get back up
Get back up again

I know I keep getting back up again because I have Hope. Capital “H” Hope… I have put my trust in the One who can carry me through until He returns. And I’ll be honest with you, sometimes I don’t want to get back up. Sometimes it’s just too hard!! I can’t do it alone, but I have the Holy Spirit with me and the promise of Christ’s return to help me stand up one more time. And I have others in the body of Christ to help me.

There’s only grace
There’s only love
There’s only mercy
And believe me it’s enough
Your sins are gone
Without a trace
There’s nothing left now
There’s only grace

I heard Beth Moore say this morning that “Until Jesus comes back, we keep coming back.” Defy Satan and keep coming back again. Keep doing what I’m called to do until The Lord chooses to call me home or He returns. Otherwise, how will others be able to “taste and see that The Lord is good?” How can they sample God’s goodness without our example? That’s our calling, in whatever giftedness God blesses us with… Teaching, music, food, children, computers… Show others the goodness of God in the everyday lives we lead.

Everybody loves free samples. Let’s start giving them away!!!!
