We Fall Down

We fall down,
We lay our crowns,
At the feet of Jesus.
The greatness of mercy and love
At the feet of Jesus.

 That is a powerful song. Short, but meaningful.  Falling down to worship the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. However, in our day-to-day lives, sometimes we fall down in a completely different way. We fall down in the muck, the mire. We sell out to temptation and the many distractions available in the age we live in. It brings us shame, regret, sorrow. A temporary separation from the Lord's presence until we bow down and lay it all at His feet. Once again, there will be memories we'll have to try to forget, and scars that will need to heal. But you know what? Though no one wants to make mistakes, we all do at some time or another. Those that follow Christ experience the greatest redemption. When we ask and accept forgiveness from the throne of God, we are renewed like the eagle. We can soar higher and stronger then ever before because of the greatness of mercy and love. We can sing:

Holy, holy, holy,
We cry holy, holy, holy,
Holy, holy, holy 
Is the Lamb!
