Do you know the story of the baby giraffe?

When a baby giraffe is born, it falls down from its mother's womb, some 8 feet above the ground. Still to weak to move, it's mother KICKS the baby giraffe into the air before it falls to the ground again! As it still lies curled up,trembling and weak, the mother KICKS it again into the air! finally, though still trembling and weak, the baby giraffe is forced to push its limbs for the first time and get up on its feet. Happy to see her baby giraffe finally on its feet, Mother giraffe still yet gives baby giraffe another kick into the air! The giraffe falls again but this time, recovers quickly and gets up. Mother giraffe is happy for she knows baby giraffe has learnt an important lesson:

"Never mind how hard you fall, always remember to pick yourself up and get back on your feet".

Mother giraffe does this because she knows lions and tigers love giraffe meat. So unless baby giraffe quickly learns to stand and run with others, it would have no chance of survival.

That's the lesson we should learn:"When life gives you kicks several times and you fall or stagger, you must bounce back again!

 Falling is part of life, stop pitying or condemning yourself. You're a work in progress because God is not finished with you.

Yes people may have mocked you like in Micah 7:8-10:"Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy:when I fall, I shall rise;when I sit in darkness,  the Lord shall be a light to me. Then she that is mine enemy shall see it and shame shall cover her which said unto me, Where is the Lord thy God? "
Be patient because what God has in store for you is better and greater than you can ever imagine that it would shock those that looked down on you.

And of course, never forget Proverbs 24:16: "For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again".
