He’ll pick you up

Each time you fall
He’ll pick you up.
He knows your own efforts
are never going to bring you
anywhere near perfection.

Not an easy road

No amount of falls will really undo us if we keep on picking ourselves up each time. We shall of course be very muddy and tattered by the time we reach home, but the bathrooms are all ready, the towels put out, and the clean clothes in the airing cupboard. The only fatal thing is to lose one’s temper and give it up. It is when we notice the dirt that God is most present in us: it is the very sign of His presence.

–C. S. Lewis
