I took a step and felt a force that directed my aimless leg off its self-ordered course
In my mind I set off in the right direction to avoid stumbling or any obstacle, but had these things not taken place I would have cheated my progress
For the direction the force took my leg; the end result I landed on my back
Now to explain how something so simple as a fall could provide a deeper understanding
Again I say my self-ordered step, I believed to be easy and free, but the force led my foot to bash the wall with such a thump, I went forward into the proceeding wall
What kept my face from breaking this interaction, the blessings of my hands created the barrier, but the force was so strong I fell to the right
Funny, actually as I think of it because somehow I ended up directly on my back
In the position that I was falling, you would think my side would have hit, but the force truly directed this path
Now the deeper understanding I will reveal at last,
When I hit my foot, in that moment all went blank, all I could make out was my personal shape and the environment around me
For my mind was blank, yet my eyes full with the sight of my falling body
As my foot hit, in the same moment it seemed, I found myself on my back as I was
And when the conscience thoughts returned they were praises being sent above,
This showed me a few things, for it let me know the default setting that I had come to know are being erased
Where there would have been cursing and anger felt, it was replaced with blessings and a praise to my God for how soft I was held
For in this fall, I knew it was ordained, so I don’t want you to think of a fall, as if I had lost what I had gained
It’s the best word to man that would describe what happened, but when things are ordained, these things have already happened.
It just takes the fertilizer which is time, to bring about the physical combined with the mind, to put into action the prophecy spoken
So I am grateful for this fall, for I am a part of the scheme
I am growing and changing in the way of Glory, for I know God placed his hand between me and the ground
For when I fell it was as if falling on air and as I got up, my passing thoughts were, “Did I hit the ground?”
The God I know, has proven himself to be gentle countless of times.
The lesson to stay humble, for arrogance will destroy you, but being humble keeps you
For it had to be this little stumble from which I learned this lesson
If not the trade-off could have been catastrophic to my soul and being, a near death experience to teach me this meaning.
Now you see how grateful I am
Praises and thanks Almighty for keeping me in your hands
In you gladly I fall.
