Failure is a Blessing in Disguise


Failure can be a blessing in disguise

When it teaches you how not to do things  

How to do things differently

  How to look beyond yourself

How to look to God, Who is all-wise .


  Failure is bad when we   

  Fail to learn the lesson it teaches  

  And keep repeating the failure  

  In a merry –go –round like the Israelites.


  Failure frees us from stigma and fear of failure  

  Making deposit for future success  

  Failure does not define us  

  Because everyone who ventures fails at some point  

  And rises from the ashes of failure into a success  


  Success without failure is fleeting success  

  Unreliable, undependable wiz-bang success

Failure is Not final

16For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.

Proverbs 24:16 (King James Version)


Affliction works for us
For our lightaffliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; 2 Corinthians 4:17

Cast Down but Unconquered

7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. 8We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed

2Cor 4:7-9

More than conquerors

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
