Get Back Up


๐†๐„๐“ ๐๐€๐‚๐Š ๐”๐. That was the message I preached at a womenโ€™s retreat this weekend. It was for them & it was for me.

The week of Pattonโ€™s first birthday, my health wasnโ€™t great, he had a terrible fall, my ministry was getting me down, and I found out I needed my thyroid removed. It was a hard week.

.

Weโ€™re all going to fall sometimesโ€ฆand not just physically like Patty did. Iโ€™m talking about when relationships fall. When your bank account falls. When your fuse to deal with other people falls. When your moral compass falls. When your health fallsโ€ฆ.What do you do? When youโ€™re so exhausted, youโ€™re so tired and you feel like you canโ€™t get back up...what do you do?

Because if youโ€™re a Jesus follower, you have the Holy Spirit of God ALIVE in YOU!


We have an entire world watching more that ever - searching for belonging and community and a purpose bigger than themselves. The world needs to see what our faith says is true. If we say we believe we have the same Holy Spirit alive in us that raised Jesus from the dead, letโ€™s live like we believe it! This fight isnโ€™t about you. We are all going to fall. Itโ€™s about what we do when we do fallโ€ฆ.and how we get back up. There is an entire generation out there watching us. You and your life may be the only bible they ever read. ๐†๐„๐“ ๐๐€๐‚๐Š ๐”๐.


Do you want to know what helps me have this strength to get back up? Because Iโ€™ve seen people go before me!


See, Jesus was put in a grave after hanging on a cross for OUR sinsโ€ฆ.but guess what? Three days later He got back up. And Esther put her life on the line before the king and guess what he tells her? Get back up. And Paul- he was stoned, imprisoned, shipwrecked, you name it and guess what - because the sameholy spirit that rose Jesus from the dead lived in him, he got back up and drug himself back into the city to preach the gospel.


Go before others and get back up. Let them say if she can do it then I can do it. And let it be to His glory- by the blood of the lamb and the world of testimony- ๐†๐„๐“ ๐๐€๐‚๐Š ๐”๐.
