Pick Yourself Up


Pick Yourself Up

There is a saying, “Getting out of Dodge.” The meaning is something like there’s trouble in River City.

The bottom line is: “It’s time for me to hit the road and get out of here or else I’ll regret it.” Usually it isn’t something a person wants to do but because of situational changes it becomes necessary.

The original case in point was leaving the Garden Of Eden! Of all the emotions the duo experienced the feeling of emptiness was one of the worst. The suffering brought on by the feeling of emptiness is real and devastating.

The source of the malady can be many things but in all cases it is the reflection of loss.  It can be the death of a love one, a lost job, a failed marriage, on and on.

Its a time when one discovers the depths of depression and fights for survival.

Like in the case of Adam and Eve some things are lost and not recoverable and we have to start all over again, like those who have lost everything due to storm, fire or flood.
Our recovery depends upon our attitude to a great extent.

The scripture Challenges us found in Colossians 3:17 :  Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.
This is a good place to start as we begin our recovery do it in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Frank Sinatra once sang a song that gives some good advice to those who have hit on hard times.

"Pick Yourself Up"
Pick yourself up...
Take a deep breath...
Dust yourself off
And start all over again.

Nothing's impossible, I have found
For when my chin is on the ground.
I pick myself up,
Dust myself off
And start all over again.

Don't lose your confidence
If you slip
Be grateful for a pleasant trip
And pick yourself up,
Dust yourself off
And start all over again.

 Work like a soul inspired
Until the battle of the day is won.
You may be sick and tired,
But you'll be a man, my son.

Will you remember the famous men
Who had to fall to rise again
They picked themselves up
Dust themselves off
And start'd all over again.

 Work like a soul inspired
Till the battle of the day is won.
You may be sick and tired,
But you'll be a man, my son. 

Will you remember the famous men
Who had to fall to rise again?
So take a deep breath...
Pick yourself up...
Dust yourself off
And start all over again.
