Hey FAM! It’s Friyay! I know we were supposed to have this convo yesterday but I wasn’t feeling my best self… So here we are ☺. I pray you all had an incredible week and are looking forward to the weekend. Sooo let’s chat “Over it”…This weeks “Over it” is endurance over failure! We chatted last week about how important it is to be able to control our minds and how much of a difference that makes in our lives. Using that same concept of believing in ourselves and the ability of God to do great things, we also need to keep pushing forward!
Endurance speaks to our ability to enduring an unpleasant or difficult process or situation without giving way. Giving way, giving up, or the belief that just because this particular plan led me to “failure” then by default, I too am a failure. We often believe this! Questioning our paths and choosing to walk a “safer” path even when we know that it’s outside the will of God.
May we contemplate for a second that maybe some of the information we gained with every failure was only setting us up for success.
That maybe if we received what we asked for when we asked for it, we wouldn’t be able to keep and take care of it. Or maybe that we simply weren’t ready, weren’t armed with the correct knowledge to use what we already had. That maybe, we might have been lacking ability.
It’s easy to look back once you’re out of a situation and praise God for ensuring that you made it through, better than when a particular journey began…but in the midst of doubt, of anger, of thoughts of defeats and inadequacies, are we so confident? Even knowing that we’ll get through, because we’ve been in these places before. Do we to keep pushing? Do we to keep praying? Do we keep our ears open?
We must have endurance to keep pushing. To keep growing, and to learn from our perceived failures. Anyway FAM, I pray that you have a lovely evening and great weekend. I love you all and I leave you with this…
Romans 5:3-5 NLT
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.
Thanks again, God bless and One love.
