I attended a wedding last night. It seems like Friday night weddings are becoming more popular. As the pastor delivered the wedding message, this phrase really resonated with me…
May you experience just enough failure that your hands stay tightly in His and may you experience enough success to know you are following His calling for your life.
I think we underestimate the importance of failure. I think we forget the value of learning from our mistakes.
If we are brave enough to honestly look at our lives and allow God to peel back the layers, the areas where we need to surrender and grow are exposed.
Some of my most difficult moments in life have been wrapped up in failures. Yet, some of my most rewarding moments have been unraveled through those very same failures.
Enough failure to lean closely into God and enough success to smile and know…yup, God is working through the mess in my life.
I am reading In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day by Mark Batterson. He believes that our trials have a way of helping us rediscover our purpose in life.
I have seen that play out in my life time after time.
Trust God. Embrace failure. Celebrate success. Seek your purpose in Christ. And chase those things you believe He is calling you to chase. Discover all you were created to be day by day!!
