When you feel like a failure
In this broken world it is very easy to feel like your a failure. There are voices everywhere telling us that if were not small enough, we're a failure. If we don't know a certain stuff, we're a failure. If we don't always feel God's presence, we're a failure. The voices are telling us that if your not what your friends expect, we're a failure. That if we don't have enough followers on social medias, we're a failure. The voices are telling us that if we don't live up to the expectations, we are failures.
Its an easy thing to think your a failure. I can say for sure, each of us could find something that people would say defined us as failures.
But that is not what God thinks. Even if we make a make a mistake, we are not failures. God says he will work all things for the good of those who love him in Romans 8:28. That means even when we think we failed, or the world thinks we've failed, God is using it for our good.
So why are we letting ourselves be defined by what we think are our failures when God wants to use them for good?
