Failing? Get up and Try again (Part 4): what failing has taught me


Oh
goodness! it is the final part in this exciting series. I enjoyed every bit of
this study.  Briefly we talked about God’smaster plan, how He’s got our Backs and why failure shouldn’t be your new name.
Today,
I am tying up all those little bits and fragments together.
The problem is not failing but
what we intend to do with the experience.
I
choose to learn from my failed experiences. I choose to get up and move on.
Let’s
talk now!

Eight
Powerful Lessons from failure
1.           
God
has a Master Plan
. When He is done his plan for our
lives is beats our imagination and surpasses all else.
2.           
Your
testimony polishes your Christian faith
. It is like
unrefined gold going through fire. When the process is complete, you shine
forth.
3.           
Can
some others learn from my experience?
Now I have a
testimony, someone else can learn from it and be encouraged. You’ve got a proof
to show others about God’s prevailing love and grace.
4.           
God
also has Timing
. Whichever way we opt to look at it,
it is perfect. God shows up at appropriate time.
O that
thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until
thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me!
If a man die, shall he live again?
all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.
Job
14:13-14
5.           
Everything
He does in our lives is for His Glory alone.
How
do I mean? Everything about your life should show others Jesus. Else he won’t
be glorified.
6.           
Prayer
Boost
. You should draw closer to God when you feel you
are losing it. Arm yourself with the Word and pray always.
7.           
I
can’t control many events in my life
. As much as I would
have love to, many things are beyond my control. The earlier you give up on
control, the easier your life will be. The only thing
I can control is my reaction and the choices I make regarding them
.
8.           
You
don’t need a pity party.
In as much as you need a pat on
the back, it is not necessary. Did I just burst your cloud of comfort? Oops! I
just did! All you need is a forward move. Don’t dwell on your inadequacies.
One
last word on this:
GOD HAS THE FINAL SAY IN YOUR LIFE AND NO SITUATION SHOULD.

For it is
God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
Philippians
2:13

My mother always told me to try and try again each time I failed. If we fall, we must get up again. Thank you for sharing these helpful points to overcome failure.
