Progressive Failure to Success:
Failure. Something we, as humans constantly fear. Naturally, we want to do good, we strive to make our parents, our families and friends proud... But we so often get to the point of our minds being consumed by fear and doubt--I might add, to the unknown. The journey we're on in life, is a long road, filled with many ups and downs that could very much lead to, failure. This may not even be a point of vocally expressing how you feel about this word, it's most likely all internalized--which is actually 10x worse. You might feel like someone has failed you; failed at getting the opportunity you were hoping for, told no, or you feel that you, yourself, have failed someone else. This has become something that is common is our world today.
Here's the thing about failure, it's only temporary. Rather than holding onto the fear--which becomes doubt and ultimately hinders what God is trying to do, we should think of mistakes, stumbling blocks, or FAILURE, as a progressive road full of POSITIVE growth, leading to success. The bible even talks about some things that turn into positives! Romans 5:3-5, "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." It also says that though my flesh & heart may fail, God is my strength! So don't be anxious, we only get into these negative stages because something is lacking and for me, if I'm being transparent here, it's prayer. I find that when I'm not in prayer as often as I should, I begin to doubt, I become discouraged and not just that...I fear potential failure or even feel that I have already failed.
What we, as humans, don't always bother doing, is changing our perception. Instead of being scared of failure or feeling like I am already there, why don't I change that around into a positive. "I'm not a failure, as it is only but a journey; a process to success." There, is where I can find self encouragement, I can push on a bit more, I can hope for another day, I can expect greatness, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Personally, Getting on my knees and praying to God for peace, for restored faith, for any doubt to be removed and to ultimately lay all of my trust in him, is the only way I find that I am able to live the life God created for me.
