When It Looks Like I Have Failed

While preparing a lesson on fear, I came across this prayer. It references one of my biggest fears-  the fear of failure.

I found it encouraging and I hope it encourages you today!

When It Looks Like I Have Failed 

“Lord, are You trying to tell me something? For…

Failure does not mean I’m a failure; It does mean I have not yet succeeded.

Failure does not mean I have accomplished nothing; It does mean I have learned something.

Failure does not mean I have been a fool; It does mean I had enough faith to experiment.

Failure does not mean I’ve been disgraced; It does mean I dared to try.

Failure does not mean I don’t have it; It does mean I have to do something in a different way.

Failure does not mean I am inferior; It does mean I am not perfect.

Failure does not mean I’ve wasted my life; It does mean I have an excuse to start over again.

Failure does not mean I should give up; It does mean I must try harder.

Failure does not mean I’ll never make it; It does mean I need more patience.

Failure does not mean You have abandoned me; It does mean You must have a better idea.

Amen.” – Dr. John C. Maxwell
