Has Someone Dropped You?

      Has life not turned out exactly the way you thought it would? Did you have plans of getting rich? Maybe starting a business and growing it and doing well? Traveling the world? Retiring to a nice spot on the beach?
      There is nothing wrong with any of those goals. Back when I was going through seminary, I thought I would ultimately Pastor a large county-seat church… thinking that was success. Well, I’m 54.. almost 55 and I don’t think I’m gonna make it. Maybe your story is something like that.
Maybe you grew up in a tough home. Maybe you were abused. Had a Parent who was an alcoholic or a husband or wife who was. In short… someone did something to you and because of that, life hasn’t turned out just like you thought it would.
       In II Samuel 4:4, the Bible speaks about a young man named Mephibosheth. Mephibosheth was a son of Jonathan and Mephibosheth was crippled. The Bible says Mephibosheth was crippled because he was dropped by his nurse and it left him crippled.
      Think about that… someone dropped Mephibosheth.. Mephibosheth was going somewhere but someone dropped him. Maybe that’s your story. You had big plans… but someone dropped you. Someone walked out on you. Someone mistreated you. .
It happens. Lots and lots of people get dropped but, the key is what do you do when you are dropped? Do you stay down or, by God’s grace, do you get up?
      I don’t know what you have been through but I know this; God loves you and God wants to help you. You may legitimately have a reason to be down… but I encourage you… even if have you have been dropped… do your best to get up and one step at a time, move on life.
       As the old gospel songs says;
     “One day at a time, sweet Jesus;
      That’s all I’m asking of you.
       Lord, give me the strength,
       To do every day,
      What I have to do.
       Yesterday’s gone, sweet Jesus,
       And tomorrow may never be mine.
        Lord, give me the strength
        To live every day, One day at time.”
