16.10.22: It’s okay to stumble

Context: Yesterday I arranged my next hospital trip to London for further tests. As my health deteriorates, I’m slowly learning to be a bit easier on myself, especially in terms of writing and posting here.

I now understand why God has generously given me much more inspiration over the years than I needed at the time. This means I have a good store of pieces to bring up to date, and to share with you.

It has been clear to me for a long time that there would come a point where I wouldn’t be well enough to write new material every day. So having reached that point, this is the time to start dipping into all I have been given, and have prepared, in advance.

Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand (Psalm 37:24; NLT). 

It’s okay to stumble,
And even to fall:
I’ll reach out and cling to Him –
Jesus is all.

It’s good to be nothing
But ashes and dust:
I’ll love Christ and follow Him –
Serve him, and trust.

It’s fine to feel empty,
Defeated, and small:
For Jesus is with me –
And he is my all.

Christ is all, and is in all (Colossians 3:11; NIV).
