God has a better way for you.

I have a couple of notice boards in my room. One has pictures, postcards, writings and musing. The other pictures and name of people etc regarding prayer.

One the first pin board is pinned an A4 print out which speaks on failure.

We all suffer failure and we all need to deal with it. What I found and have stuck on this pin board I read often. It helps to remind me that things are bigger than I what I feel at any given time. That what I perceive as failure now God can potentially use positively latter.

This is what my print out says:

"Failure doesn't mean - "You are a failure",
It means - You have not succeeded.

Failure doesn't mean - "You accomplished nothing,"
It means - You have learned something.

Failure doesn't mean - "You have been a fool,"
It means - You had a lot of faith.

Failure doesn't mean - "You don't have it,"
It means - You were willing to try.

Failure doesn't mean - "You are inferior,"
It means - You are not perfect.

Failure doesn't mean - "You've wasted your life,"
It means - You have a reason to start afresh.

Failure doesn't mean - "You should give up,"
It means - "You must try harder.

Failure doesn't mean - "You'll never make it,"
It means - It will take a little longer.

Failure doesn't mean - "God has abandoned you"
It means - God has a better way for you.
