Psalm 46:5 - God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.
There are things in life that you don’t have much control over – serious illnesses such as fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, strep throat just to name a few. Thankfully there are medications that can help each of these issues, especially when you had no control over getting them in the first place.
There are other medical issues that you can control and sometimes even eliminate. Take for example catching the flu. It is hard to protect yourself during flu season but there are things that you can do to avoid getting sick such as improving you immune system by eating foods high in vitamin C, getting enough sleep, and even exercising.
And there is another – Falling. Sometimes we can’t prevent a fall, but we can know what to do as you’re falling to prevent injury to your body.
But no matter how you try sometimes a fall happens. Is there something more you can do to make a fall less traumatic to the body? Yes, there is.
Smartcellsusa.com has an article on their website entitled, “How-to Fall Safely to Reduce Fall Related Injuries,” which provides suggestions you can take to reduce your injuries, such as how to safely fall forward, sideways and backwards. Then instead of falling and breaking your arm or leg, you will break your fall.
Remember that God is with you as you start to fall and if you fall. He will safely guard you so that you don’t fall or at least not as often.
