“When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.”
When we make mistakes, we shouldn’t be so hard on ourselves, because God can bring good out of every mistake.
Our finite minds tend to look backward, longing to undo decisions we have come to regret, but this is a complete waste of time and energy…and leads only to frustration.
Instead of floundering in the past, we should release our mistakes to God and trust that His infinite creativity will weave both our good and bad choices into a lovely design.
Thinking that we should or could live an error-free life is actually symptomatic of pride.
Our failures are often a source of blessing…they humble us and make us more empathy towards other people’s weaknesses.
Best of all, our failures highlight our dependence on God… so let us trustingly watch and see how He brings beauty out of the morass of our mistakes
Dear God, teach me to cling to You no matter where I’ve made a wrong turn or how many times I’ve gone down that road. I know You are a God who in all things works for the good of those who love You, and those who You have called according to Your purpose. (Romans 8:28). Help me to believe this especially when I mess up. Amen.
