What Does Failure Look Like To You????

Take a look at the two pictures below and really think about this.  What does your failure look like to you?  Failure, does it really exist or is it something that was made up long ago.  Do we really give satan such joy?   Looking at the first picture is the  typical way of thinking of  how satan wants you to look at failure. Many people look at failure as the end. The feeling of hopelessness. The mind-set of why did I put myself out there and for what.  Just to be disappointed.  The voice in our heads saying, I should have known I would fail.  Now look, everyone sees me as a failure, one that cannot succeed at anything.  To many times we care way too much on what others think of us than caring about what our one true God is thinking.  
Failure is what you make it.  This means, it depends on how one interprets it. When you look at picture two it show how one should be when it comes to failure. As your are not looking at yourself as a failure or letting anyone else look at you in such a way.  It does not matter what is going on in your life, this includes living with chronic disease/illness.  This is when we turn to God and take a deeper look as failure is not from God.  In Romans 5:3-5 says; More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.  I say, change are way of thinking and turn failure into the beginning of something great. Think about it, when you were in school learning and did not quiet get the hang of a subject, it was not because you were a failure it was because you were in the phase of embracing new knowledge.  That does not changed once you become an adult.  God is still teaching you new lessons, just as when we were children. We may not get it right away and need to practice by having to do it over and over to perfect it.  The word failure should mean God’s way of having you to perfect your best. God only wants the best for us and he is the only one that knows our true best.  Instead of failure being an event that does not accomplish its intended purpose.  At times what we think is our true best, God is saying, child, I know you have so much more you can give and as your father, I will make sure you excel in the destiny I have made for you.[divider][fbshare type=”button” width=”100″] [fblike style=”standard” showfaces=”false” width=”450″ verb=”like” font=”arial”]
