Failure · Grace · Grateful · Learning · Teaching

failed…

Yesterday… I failed to follow through on the call to write six days a week… Sunday… Monday… Tuesday… Wednesday… Thursday… Friday…!?

So here I am Saturday… my day of rest… confessing my Friday failure…

He said it several times… the Spirit softly reminding… Put your laptop on the counter in the kitchen… open it up… so you won’t forget…

I should know by now… I’ve preached it to myself recently… Do it when you hear Him… or you won’t…

I put off the voice… I’ll do it after this… but after that… never happened… so my waking thought… I failed to post yesterday…

And I’m grateful for His grace… and the truth there is no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus… for even in our failure… He teaches…

He knows we will fail… before we do…

He knows the purpose… He will draw from each failure…

For me… a reminder… to follow His instruction when He speaks…. not when I find it convenient…

Where have you failed this week…?

Don’t beat yourself up… or wallow in self-pity… receive His grace… find His purpose… and learn to follow His instruction…

Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners in the way. 

Psalm 25:8 ESV
