Failing at Failing

The only time you truly fail is when you do not/you cannot forgive yourself for failing.  When you cannot look back at the failure and determine how to make an improvement the upon the next attempt…..so you QUIT.  You listen to the lies that say, you are going to mess up or lead someone astray if you try again.

“Take chances, make mistakes, get messy.”  Ms. Frizzle of The Magic Schoolbus books – Scholastic

Forgive because he has forgiven.  Matthew 6:14-15  Forgive yourself.  He knows you are not perfect……

“So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!” Romans 7:21-25 NIV

and yet He loves you any how!

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. ” John 3:16 NIV

So get out and do something, make mistakes and know that

“..if the Son sets you free, you are truly free.” John 8:36 NLT

So my friend, you are free to make a mistake, and to learn from it, and to seek God’s power to try again in victory!
