If perchance, like me, you decided to be wise and sensible at the turning of the New Year and, rather than making a list of resolutions you likely would never be able to keep you chose to make a significant, necessary change in your life - one you had prayerfully considered and knew to be good and right - and then proceeded to fail not two days into the New Year, I want to share some good words with you. (This may be the longest sentence I've ever written!) Rather than throw up your hands in despair and give up as I am prone to do lets take Bob Goff's words to heart:
"Failure is just part of the process, and it’s not just okay; it’s better than okay. God doesn’t want failure to shut us down. God didn’t make it a three-strikes-and-you’re-out sort of thing. It’s more about how God helps us dust ourselves off so that we can swing for the fences again. And all of this without keeping a meticulous record of our screw-ups."
