Upwards and Onwards

Hello VOH Family-
I feel compelled to write you a short note. I hope and pray that the Bible meditation is going well so far this year.

Hopefully, it’s going well. But just in case you might be struggling or stumbling at the end of this first week, a verse from Scripture has come to me over and over again this week so I want to share it with you.

Proverbs 24:16 says, “for though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again…” Interestingly, the name of the praise night tonight is called “Rise” too.
If the enemy can’t keep you away from reading Scripture, he’ll try to get you on the way down. And he’ll try to bombard you with all kinds of negative thoughts when you slip up. Don’t give in to that! Just get back up and keep going. If you miss a day or two, just get back up and catch up! If you really can’t catch up then just pick up on whatever day it is! But don’t wallow in defeat; that’s the worst thing you can do. You are a victor in Christ!

Hope to see you tonight!

Blessings,
Dennis
