If there is one thing I could share starting off in 2017, it is this: YOU ARE NOT A FAILURE! You may not succeed on every attempt, you may make mistakes, make a wrong decision, or stumble sometimes, but nothing about you is a failure. I share this because I too feel this way at times. I can feel like I am failing at being a wife, a mom, a friend, or just at life in general. And when I feel like this, it is so easy to get sucked into a depressed state where it is hard to even get out of bed in the morning. So I need to hear this just as much as anyone else. No matter how many times I screw up, failure is not what defines me. JESUS DOES!
He loves us. He can take what is broken, and make it new. He can redeem us. He can set us free from the fear of failure.
He created us, and called us good.
He gives us purpose and life.
Read and study the Bible to see what he says about us.
Jesus, help us to start seeing ourselves for who we really are. Priceless and loved by you.
Let's go into 2017 living this out. ❤
