Don't let anyone deceive you in believing it's over when you have messed up, made a mistake, or even fallen down in your walk with Christ.
None of us have arrived to the place of perfection, but this is our goal, this is what we are striving for every day, and this is what we hope to be progressing in every day - to become better and better, to do better and better, to live a better life that we may have better results, and to be holy as our father in heaven is holy (I Peter 1:16). It is in the same way as learning to do something for the first time. The more you practice it, the more you become better at it.
So get up, shake the dust off, ask the Lord to forgive you , and keep moving forward with a desire and determination to do better in your walk with Christ.
"My little children, these things write I unto you, that you sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And he is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world" (I John 2:1-2)
