Failure is an Option

Inevitable.  Failure happens.  Some of our greatest successes come after failure.  Failure tills the ground preparing for what’s next.  God uses success in our lives.  He also uses failure.
Some areas I’ve experienced failure in my life:
Healthy living
In ministry
Marriage
Job
Financially
As a parent
Attitude
Friendship
… Just to name a few :/
Sometimes though, things may look bleak and we have a choice to make.  When failure is an option, the enemy of our soul SHOUTS loudly; reminding us of past failures, reminding us of the impossibility of a situation, reminding us of our personal short-comings.  However, there is another Voice.  When failure looms, there’s a Voice that reminds us that He is in control, a Voice that says, “Do not be afraid”.  It’s at that moment that we have a choice.  We can listen to the negativity and lies of the enemy, or we can listen to the Voice of Truth.
After failure, or on the brink of… which voice are you going to listen to?
From the words of Casting Crowns, “I will choose to listen and believe the Voice of Truth.”
