“You’re my servant, serving on my side.
I’ve picked you. I haven’t dropped you.’
Don’t panic. I’m with you.
There’s no need to fear for I’m your God.
I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you.
I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.”
-Isaiah 41: 9-10 [Message]
A Time to Think… “Thankfully, the gospel gives us a blessed assurance that we operate inside of an abundant, limitless, infinite Love. Even though we will constantly fail, failure is not the final word. We also have hope that everything can be mended, healed, and restored. ”―Fr. Richard Rohr
A Time to Act… Today there may be failure as I go about my life but they will not have the final world. I will rest in my faith in God knowing that failures in God’s hands can become incredible opportunities that I never imagined!
A Time to Pray… O Lord, you know my failure rate yet you continue to love and lead me every day. You give me hope to heal and restore, and in your presence I can be at peace knowing that my screw-ups will not have the final word. I praise you, O Lord of heaven and earth, for your power and love, AMEN.
