Proverbs (chapter 24:16) says, when the just falls, he gets back up. That's what the scripture says. Now that implies, if you are down presently may be due to circumstances beyond your control. You shouldn't be weighed down. Rather, what you've got to do is just to get back up to your feet and then press on. Do remember this, the down fall of any human is not the end of his or her life.

Believe you me, that's possible, unless you do think otherwise. -Emeasoba George
