The righteous falls, and rises again

13 My son, eat honey, for it is good, and the drippings of the honeycomb are sweet to your taste.
14 Know that wisdom is such to your soul; if you find it, there will be a future, and your hope will not be cut off.
15 Lie not in wait as a wicked man against the dwelling of the righteous; do no violence to his home;
16 for the righteous falls seven times and rises again, but the wicked stumble in times of calamity.

–From Proverbs 24

Sometimes I wonder why I stumble so hard in times of calamity. Sometimes I wonder why I stumble in times of peace.

Sometimes, I wonder why I wonder.

Forgive me, Lord.
