When You Fall (A Video Message From Jennifer Lee)

February 21, 2012 | 24 comments

We can never fall so far that we’re out of God’s reach. He loves us anyway.


A vlog … (for sinners’ eyes only!)

P.S. — I did not, in fact, record the whole thing with my eyes closed, despite the picture you may see below. 🙂

    I love this: she could have walked to the house.

    But you knew what would most help heal her bruised heart as well as skinned knees, and did more than what was “necessary.” And He’s just like that, times infinity.

    (Need I say, you and that swingset — all the way to the moon. Beautifully done. Beautifully.)

      Hi Lyla …

      “Like that, times infinity.” True enough….

      I don’t — nearly often enough — model the ways of my good and gracious Father. But when I do, I get a tiny taste of what deep agape love feels like. But still, it pales.

      Thank you friend.

  2. S. Etole

    Yes! to what Lyla said. The two of you say things so well.

    • dukeslee

      Hi Susan! Thanks for being here today, friend. Need to pop over your way and see what beauty you’ve been unearthing Up North. 🙂

  3. Joe Pote

    I love the message of your video!

    It reminds me of Psalm 37:23-24, “The steps of a man are established by the LORD, and He delights in his way. When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong, because the LORD is the One who holds his hand.”

    Have a blessed day!

      Great, great verse. Things for enriching the conversation here by adding your thoughts to the comment box.

    You are an amazing speaker! This was so beautiful. Thanks for taking the time to put it together!

    • dukeslee

      Hi kd!

      Thanks for being here today. I’m pretty new to this vlogging thing. Nice to have good friends close by. 🙂

    And He never tires of running to the hurting, the bruised, those scraped up when they are trying to live joy…

    Love this Jennifer. God’s richest blessings on you and your family this day! Thankful to link up after my time in the world!

    • dukeslee


      I’ve been meaning to get over to read about your adventures. I’m really glad you’re linking. I can’t imagine what it must be like for you now, transitioning back. God’s blessings to you, friend!

  6. Connie@raise your eyes

    Thank you, dear friend for coming into the quiet of my morning and helping me start the day right…with tears for the depth of my Father’s Love.

  7. Sheila Seiler Lagrand

    I love hearing your stories in your own voice. Thank you, Jennifer.

    It seems to me, often, that it’s my mama’s heart (or Lala’s heart, in this season of my life) that comes closest to loving like He does.

    “Closest,” of course, is relative. It’s still a faint, faint echo of what He offers.

  8. Deb Russell

    I love to read your blog … but I think your vlogs are even better cuz it’s like you’re right here talking with me! You put a beautiful vision in my head of our Heavenly Father running towards me with open arms welcoming me … I just love that. Thank you, both of your vlogs have been exactly what I needed to hear … and I love The Sidewalk Prophets 🙂

  9. David Rupert

    I love these video messages. You are so warm and real.

    I do believe that there is hope for all of us. I’ve been learning about the Bad people of the bible…and surprisingly, they are also the heros in Hebrews 11.

    Give me hope for my wretched self!

  10. laura

    The running God…Yes! He is. Such a beautiful message, Jennifer. Stellar.

    Did I tell you who was at Jubilee this weekend? Bob Goff! No kidding. He talked about whimsy too. I. Love. Him. And I was so glad you sent me that video so I felt like I knew him already. It was awesome and fun.

    Love you.

  11. Robert Moon

    A mother does hear her child’s cry. I am so thankful that God is ever listening to us and he hears our cry.

  12. Kris

    I am so glad I clicked over here before bed tonight. I needed this beautiful message to seep into my heart. Thank you for this video, your Christ light shines so encouragingly. Loved seeing you and hearing your words!!

  13. Patricia (Pollywog Creek)

    This was so beautiful, Jennifer. The picture of a running God who kisses over and over and over again. What lavish love is this!!!! Thank you.

  14. Sandra Heska King

    There you go again. Splashed His light and given me such a picture of a running, loving, holding God who kisses over and over. Tears here. Again.

  15. Megan Willome

    Hey! You’re getting really good at these vlog-thingies.

  16. Alyssa Santos

    lovely to hear your voice! I love the idea that she could have run to you, but you heard her cries and ran to her — what a great and grace-filled picture of our savior! Thank you!

  17. Positively Alene

    JUst beautiful! Love the visions I see of God running to me when I cry out. Blessings.

  18. Janet

    I loved the vlog. Wonder image of God running to us just as we do for our children.

  19. Andrea Haddock

    So excited to see how the Lord is using you and how you are expanding in your use of all this media to spread His fame and His glory! Press on, dear sister!
