Pick yourself up, dust yourself down.

Do you remember that song that Fred Astaire sang to Ginger Rodgers in the old movie, Swingtime? It went like this: ‘Nothing’s impossible I have found, for when my chin is on the ground I pick myself up, dust myself down, and start all over again.’ It was a catchy little song with a good message reminding us that no failure has to be final; you may be down, but that doesn’t mean that you are out. And that’s the great message that Jesus brought to this world. It doesn’t matter how much of a mess we may have made of life; it doesn’t matter how far we’ve drifted from God. If we have the sense to realise it and turn back to God, then He’ll pick us up, dust us down and empower us to start all over again. ‘When anyone becomes united to Christ,’ the Bible says, ‘they become a brand new person inside…A new life has begun.’
