“Even though good people may be bothered by trouble seven times, they are never defeated, but the wicked are overwhelmed by trouble.” – Proverbs 24:16
One of my favorite verses in the Word.
I get into trouble a lot, most of it my own fault I like pushing the limits of stuff a bit and in the process blow it here and there.
In Christ, however, we are not defeated. We may get bruised and broken a bit, chastised, for sure, but, always, forever, loved and picked back up, washed and wiped off, then enveloped in His embrace.
Much like Max and Em with Jaclyn and I, one really good hug, a pat on the butt and a nudge in the right direction.
