Author ~ " What Looks Like Failure to an Untrained Eye"
Have you ever made a mistake and thought that your life was over? That you had messed up beyond repair and nothing, I mean nothing, could salvage things, so you might as well throw the baby out with the bath water? If this sounds familiar, this book may be just what you need to read to change your perspective.
I have messed up on more than one occasion; so often in fact, that I began to see myself as a failure. Then it hit me one day. Just because I had failed at something, didn't mean that I was a failure; it meant I had failed at some things. There is a huge difference. Perspective is everything. How we see ourselves and how we view a situation can determine how we come through that situation.
We live in a culture that teaches us to view failure as the end of all things. In truth, it can be a springboard to success if we choose to see it that way.
The Bible is filled with examples of failures who were used by a mighty God to accomplish HIS purposes. He can use you too if you let Him.
Babies come into this world extremely nearsighted; it is through learning to focus and training both eyes to work together that they are able to see things further away and in greater depth. As we age, our eyes lose some of their muscle tone and we begin to experience difficulty seeing things that are right in front of us. By exercising those ocular muscles, some doctors believe that we may be able to postpone needing bifocals and the need for Lasix surgery a bit longer. It's all about training our eyes to see things differently.
Think of some of the things we take for granted in our daily lives that simplify routine tasks. Do you think their inventors experienced overnight success with them? I'm willing to bet there were many days and nights filled with frustrations and doubts before success ever saw the light of day. Hope and perseverance are the flames that change failure into something that burns brightly and warms the soul.
Don't give up on your dreams; you could be sitting on a goldmine, or at least something that will bless the socks off of someone else. It's all a matter of how you choose to use your mistakes and allow God to weave them into a tapestry that reflects His glory. Some of the greatest inventions began as mistakes. What can He do with your failures? Let them become the fuel for your future!
