- What caused the failure?
- Was what happened truly a failure?
- What can I learn from what happened?
- Am I grateful for the experience?
- How can I turn this into a success?
- Who can help me learn the most from this experience?
- Where do I go from here?
Aware of the recurring issues in my life, I have decided to take some corrective actions. I could not allow the same mistakes to happen again and again because that would be foolishness. I made myself accountable to my husband and my closest friends to guide me through the process. They are there to warn me against detrimental steps. I do not want to wait until I am deep in the pit of failure before I come to my senses.
By God’s grace, I have come to terms with my recent failures and learned crucial lessons in the process. By God’s grace, I already said goodbye to yesterday. Right now, I am getting ready to get up, get over it, and get going.
1 Peter 5:10-11 (New International Version, ©2010)
10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 11 To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.
