I don't like the taste of failure - I am not sure there are many of us who do - and so I have lived with that nagging sense of "failure" for 2 years now. I can't tell you the elation I felt on Saturday when I crossed the finish line and to top it off I was feeling great! I am grateful to my friends and team-mates who encouraged me across that finish line.
So, here is my observation on this:
Failure doesn't have to define you.
Failure doesn't have to be the last word spoken from a particular experience.
Failure is not fatal.
When God is in our lives, He is able to transform anything into something worthwhile. Well, that is what I believe!
Psalm 73:26 - My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion for ever.
James 5:11 - As you know, we count as blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.
So, DON'T Give up!
Living in Grace
