When Life Knocks You Down, Get Back Up!

When Life Knocks You Down, Get Back Up!

Do you ever have a song stuck in your head and keep hearing it over and over again? Recently I’ve had the song by Chumbawamba — Tubthumping — running over and over in my head. The line we have all heard, whether we knew the song or not is, “I get knocked down, but I get up again. You are never gonna keep me down.” The song repeats this line over and over again. “I get knocked down, but I get up again. You are never gonna keep me down.”

We have all wanted to believe that life is supposed to be a straight line, but it’s not. Life is about ups and downs. When we are in the down cycles, we’ve believed that we’re doing something wrong or that we are being punished by a karmic Universe. But if every down is actually giving us the energy for the next big up?

Jesus said, “In the world there is tribulation, but be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world.”

Where have you been knocked down by life? If you tell yourself the truth, did you get back up, or are you just lying there waiting for someone to save you? Sometimes we feel so sad about what has happened that we just stop living. We think to ourselves, “What’s the point? I’m just going to get knocked down again. Why should I even get back up?” Because you are here to overcome life! Get back up!

The Easter message is about resurrection. It is about over­coming the worst thing in your life and creating something far greater. It is about getting knocked down hard by life.It is getting knocked down by other people’s cruelty or ignorance and choosing to get back up. Easter is aboutunleashing the power of God in you to do something amazing.

“I get knocked down, but I get up again. You are never gonna keep me down!”

No matter what is happening to you right now, God in you is greater. We actually need the bumps of life to reveal how much God is within us. Life is not here to take you out; it is here to reveal the fullness of God.

This is your moment of resurrection! This is your time to give birth to more than you have ever been before! Call upon the resurrecting power of God in you to see you through whatever challenges you are facing. God will see you through.

May this Easter be a breakthrough moment for you where you are resurrected to a higher, finer expression of God.

Many blessings to you ... and Happy Easter!
