"though he stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with His hand" (Psalm 37:24).
"for though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again" (Proverbs 24:16)
Sometimes we learn the hard way.
Sometimes we have to make mistakes in order to learn from them.
Sometimes we are told, "We all make mistakes" or "I told you so".
Sometimes we just keep messing up and don't learn from our sinful ways or sinful thoughts.
Always God is faithful and just.
Always God keeps His promises.
Always God lifts us up when we fall.
Always God is trying to teach us how to live, but is always loving and forgiving and He never gives up on us.
