Day 12: Let the Failure Go

In church today there was an important message for anyone who’s tried to accomplish anything. That is to say — everyone who has ever breathed.

The message was about failure. Or — who to blame for failure.

None of us like to fail. And when we do fail, we often blame ourselves.

But the pastor said, “It’s not your fault. If you are taking the blame when you fail, that means you are taking the blame when you succeed.”

He told us to give it away. Give it to God.

This was so powerful for me. I’m the first to feel down when I fail, but if I take away that control, then it isn’t so bad. And when I do succeed, I will always say I was never alone. I was with God. A wave of wonder settled inside of me. I went in peace.
