Rethinking Failure

Thought For Today: “Rethinking Failure”

Theodore Roosevelt said, “Far better to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.”

Benjamin Franklin said, “Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out.”

Winston Churchill said, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

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?” (Jeremiah 8:4)

I think it’s time to take failure out of the darkness of disgrace and guilt and recast it into a new light. When we do it will free us up to do great and mighty things for the Lord!

Ultimately failure is not about loss; rather it’s about learning lessons and moving forward in life. It is the lessons learned from failure that makes us wiser, stronger, and more prepared for the rest of life.
