Failure

OK, I know right off that you are thinking with titles like this and the last entry that I need major help. But I believe that a biblical worldview is big enough to accomodate the good, the bad, and yes, the ugly, not to mention the easy, the hard, the big and small, the temporal and eternal and everything else.  So what’s the purpose of failure in the Christian’s life, who are suppose to “overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us” (Romans 8:37)?  And how about the non-Christian who has no clue or the one who does and openly hates God? “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble” (1 Peter 5:5).  You can allow disappointment, trials, and failures to produce humility in you or God will humble you sooner (Ah, what grace to be stopped and turned around.) or later (Oh, what sorrow will be theirs to find they should have heeded His voice.). My poem attempts to point out the grace in failure, though at times it feels harsh.  Click on Failure to read it.
