Jeremiah 8:4 (NLT) Jeremiah, say to the people, “This is what the Lord says,: When people fall down, don’t they get up again? When they discover they’re on the wrong road, don’t they turn back?”
One of the realities of life is failure. You can’t go through life without experiencing it. It’s something that comes with living and growing. You didn’t learn to walk without falling. You didn’t learn to ride a bike without some skinned knees. You likely haven’t passed every test you were given in school, or successfully completed every project you were assigned. The fact is, we all fail. If we don’t learn how to handle failure the right way we’ll have a miserable, frustrated life.
Recovering from failure starts by remembering that failure is an event, it’s not a label. It’s something that happened to us, and not something that has to define us forever. When you fail you must shake off the shame, get rid of the guilt by owning the failure while receiving forgiveness. You must mine the gold of your mistakes and make the lessons a deposit in your wisdom account.
