When we make mistakes, when we blow it, when we fail — because we all will — we cannot allow these mistakes to define who we are.
Failure is not the end:
Failure is not the end if we are willing to follow Jesus. Life is worth living. We will all blow it from time to time — no one is perfect. When we do, we have hope because of what Jesus did for us.
Don’t go back to failures:
When we walk with Jesus and then walk away (backslide), we tend to go back to our failure. We tend to go right back and do the things we used to do. We don’t fall back to something new but something we have been delivered from. So, we must be aware of this so we don’t get deceived.
Curve balls come from nowhere:
Life will throw us a curve ball at times. Things come out of nowhere. They catch us off guard and, if it is painful enough, can sidetrack us. We begin to blame God somehow, and when we do, we will go back to our old life. It is sad that if things don’t go the way we want, we will walk away from God. We don’t have to — we choose to.
So, let us all realize as followers of Jesus we will be loyal to Him — our whole. Because of the price He paid for our sins, life is worth living.
Just a thought,
