Just like a ball, we’ve got to bounce back. In life, we would sometimes be up, at other times, we’re down. If a ball is filled with air, it will bounce back up easily. However, if the amount of air inside the ball were not as it should be, then it would not bounce swiftly. Rather, it will just roll on the ground.
Likewise, in our Christian walk, we must always pray that we would be filled by the Holy Spirit, so that we may easily bounce back and continue the “game” that is set before us. If we were not, then, our tendency would be to dwell on the bad stuff, which would eventually lead us further downhill.
Let us be filled with the Holy Spirit. Bounce back.
“Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” -Hebrews 12:1-2 NASB
