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!
