5 Steps to Dealing With Failure

My life is a testimony of God being able to take a failure–apply his grace and mercy–and make something useful for His glory. God loves to use people that have fallen short because He gets the credit! Here are a few key points to remember when you’ve blown it:

1. Own. Before you can confess your sin, you must take responsibility for your failure with God and others. Sincere confession can only come out of true ownership of our mistake. No blame shifting…..own it and confess it. (1 John 1:9)

2. Receive. Honor God’s grace and mercy by receiving His forgiveness. Your mistake is not the one sin that is the exception to the cross. Your “sin has been thrown as far as the east is to the west.” (Ps. 103:12) To not forgive yourself is not noble, it’s pride. Your standard is not higher than God’s.

3. Evaluate. Some mistakes are a no-brainer and need little evaluation. It’s clear what broke down. Other instances need our evaluation to see how we can grow in wisdom and not make the same mistake. Many people have experiences but do not grow in wisdom because they do not reflect.

4. Release: Stop collecting your failures like trophies. Stop revisiting them. You’ve been forgiven. There is no probation period with God’s grace. Your failure is not final unless you choose to stay there. Let go of your past and fixate on Jesus.

5. Press On: Not just forward in life, but press on toward Jesus, becoming the man or woman God’s called you to be! (Phil 3:13-14)

Take a moment to share below what God’s taught you in regards to walking out of failure.

  1. This is very interesting, You’re a very skilled blogger. I’ve joined your feed and look forward to seeking more of your excellent post. Also, I have shared your web site in my social networks!

  2. I have discovered that sensible real estate agents everywhere are getting set to FSBO Promotion. They are noticing that it’s not only placing a sign in the front area. It’s really in relation to building human relationships with these suppliers who sooner or later will become consumers. So, once you give your time and energy to supporting these traders go it alone — the “Law associated with Reciprocity” kicks in. Interesting blog post.

  3. Thanks for the new stuff you have unveiled in your article. One thing I want to touch upon is that FSBO relationships are built eventually. By releasing yourself to owners the first end of the week their FSBO is actually announced, before the masses start off calling on Mon, you make a good link. By sending them resources, educational products, free reports, and forms, you become the ally. If you take a personal curiosity about them as well as their predicament, you create a solid network that, in many cases, pays off in the event the owners decide to go with a representative they know and trust — preferably you.

  4. Hi my family member! I wish to say that this article is amazing, great written and include approximately all vital infos. I would like to look more posts like this .
