A couple of months ago our sweet baby had her first major fall and had to get three stitches on her little forehead. Heartbreaking! It’s not an easy place to get stitches; the doctor and nurse had a hard time keeping her head still. (Update: she is healing very well and the scar is almost gone!).
She is such a brave child and this little boo boo didn’t stop her from practicing her new walking skills. Her strong will and courage reminds me of how I need to be sometimes. There are many times I fear trying because of the possibility of failure. It is okay to fail sometimes because it only makes you discover new strengths and weaknesses.
The Bible says to keep trying…
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10 NIV
Be brave and strong because God is on your side.
