Catch Me When I Fall

If you are close to me, then you know how dangerously clumsy I am. I run into things, drop things (like knives..) and do pretty much anything I can do to get in trouble. I of course don't mean to, it's just part of who I am. I think it's like the fact when I was younger I would stutter because my thoughts were going too fast for my mouth to catch up. It's a different problem now, my thoughts are going too fast for my body to catch up.

Since I'm so clumsy, my husband is always saving me, catching me, stopping me and more. Last weekend I walked into the edge of our bed and still have the huge bruise to show it. Today I slammed my thumb into a drawer and burned myself cooking. It's magical, I know. Brian said he needed to babysit me.

I had a mini epiphany when he said that. God does that throughout our lives. He catches us when we fall, stops us before we ram into a wall, says no when we are going in the wrong direction. God saves us each day from hurting ourselves, we just don't see it. I wish I could see each moment He saves me, just so that I could thank Him.

There are times in my life that I definitely felt at rock bottom and just when I think there is no way this could be fixed, it just seems to be fixed. At those moments I know it's God saving me. Those moments that are so huge in my life make me wonder at how many little ones He saved along the way.

It's so easy to not pay attention in life and get yourself into a rut. Yet, it could be so much worse. God could let us fall, could let us hit rock bottom. Where would we be without Him?

When I look at our marriage and the way Brian saves me daily, he is just showing me what a Godly husband He is. He is my rock, my strength, as well as my keeper. When you can see God in your husband it reminds you why you got married. While I love Brian with all of my heart and soul, our marriage is more than that. We took vows before God and were very aware of that fact on our wedding day. We wanted our marriage to glorify God and when Brian acts as my keeper, He is glorifying God in my eyes. He acts in a way that God does in our lives. I have been blessed with a Godly husband.
