For a righteous man may fall seven times
but he dares to rise again… -Proverbs 24:16a


Last night, I was watching a show on T.V.  A comment was made by a father to his daughter.

She said, “Why do I seem to do everything wrong in my life?”

The father held his daughter close and whispered in her ear, “Didn’t you know?  The sparkle in a diamond, depends on the flaws it has.  I look at you now, and you’ve never been brighter!”

That’s what our Heavenly Father whispers to us when we kneel before Him and ask for forgiveness for our short-comings and failures!  When we acknowledge our weakness to Him, He makes us strong and we shine brighter as we draw close to Him!
