Falling . . .

Falling . . .

Yet Again!


Hiding from a hail of enemy fire on a blood-filled ridge

Losing a fallen comrade during a Korean winter long ago


Falling . . .

Yet Again!


Abandoning a radiant, young bride on a stormy night

Realizing now this decision was such a selfish error


Falling . . .

Yet Again!


Failing to slow down at a dangerous, sharp highway curve

Seeing a limp, lifeless body slumped in the passenger seat


Falling . . .

Yet Again!


Watching as unforgiving cancer strikes down a loved one

Wishing to stand in her corner and take away all of the pain


Falling . . .

Yet Again!


Hitting the streets looking for a chance to work again

Struggling to comprehend life without a worthy job


Falling . . .

Yet Again!


Drinking another “Jack Daniels” very late at night

Feeling despondent week after week with no life


Waking up . . .

Dropping to my knees!


Thumbing through a Bible

Finding Psalm 18


I love you, O Lord, my strength

The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer,

my God, my rock in whom I take refuge,

my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.


No longer falling!

The Scripture in bold type comes from Psalm 18.
