It made me think of the song! There weren’t any drums or guitar breaks…just damp pavement on a newly sealed parking lot & my own competitive spirit trying not to get blown out on a 200 meter run at the end of a workout. A skinned shoulder and knee–it could have been worse. Next time I’ll take the corner a bit more carefully.
We can learn from wipeouts…better to learn without them! Someone has said you can learn the hard way by making mistakes yourself, you can learn the easy way by learning from other’s mistakes, or you can learn the best way and that’s by not making mistakes at all. I suspect even when we are walking to close to the Lord–He lets us learn some things the hard way. But from where I am sitting you are always better off to avoid the Wipeout!
