“Most men don’t want to fail…even once. We want to measure up and be successful at anything we try. That’s why we don’t like to play if we don’t think we can win. A man’s greatest fear is failure and his greatest pain is regret.
Have you ever failed? If you answered yes cheer up! You’re in good company. Failure is an event, never a person. Don’t internalize a failure until it starts to ferment into regret….Learn from it. Pain can be a great teacher.
Just because you’re down doesn’t mean your out. Not by a long shot. Even in our failures, God can still accomplish his purpose. It’s through our weaknesses that he shows himself strong.
What results? Then you’re going to have to do something different…If you are a Christian, you have resurrection power within you. Tap into it…God loves making weak men strong. Don’t just try to “be a better man.” Be God’s man. Stop trying to tell your story. Start telling his. It’s not about you. It’s about him.”
