Failure…?

Failure-as-learning-opportunity

Let failure be your servant not your master. We have repented of our failures, learned from our failures, developed a closer walk with God because of our failures, built deeper character because of failure, we have a testimony of our failures because of what the enemy meant to use to kill, steal and destroy, God has turned it around for our good…failure is our servant.

When failure becomes our master is when we let it define WHO we are. Failure is what was done…but it’s NOT who we are. His love defines WHO we are. Failure is our master when we causes us to not press on towards the call of God on our lives…HEY!!! That has never left you! The call is still there. Failure is our master when we live under the crushing feeling of shame, condemnation and constant discouragement. Rather than understanding that Jesus’ Blood has cleansed and washed away a multitude of sins…His Blood is and was enough…you are free.

So don’t live under the lie of the enemy. He’s out to destroy everything good, pure and wonderful about you and your walk with God. It’s enough. Time to take a deep breath and move on with God…this is your hopeful destiny! It will never change. You are loved.

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to stop by and read my blog! My name is Ryan and I am the husband of a beautiful woman named Megan and the father of two beautiful children, Elianna and Andrew. Elianna LOVES to ride horses and compete in shows. My son Andrew is an all-star baseball player. I couldn't be more proud of my kiddos. A little bit about me... I am about to turn 40yrs old...but I feel (and act) much younger. Haha! First and foremost the greatest passion of my life is Jesus. Without Him living in my heart, I would be dead...or at best a lost soul wandering the earth. He is my joy...my comfort...my peace...my love...my everything. I love Him so much. The Bible talks about whoever has been forgiven much...loves much...that's me in a nutshell. I am thankful for life, love, and family. Along with a dear friend of mine, we are getting ready to plant a church in the Charlotte, NC area...more to come on that. What else...I love to laugh. Especially at myself. I love God's creation...listening to the birds, watching the rain fall as it hits the windows, hiking in the woods and breathing in deep the rich smells of the forest. I love and enjoy the things that most people miss or take for granted. I am on a journey...a journey into the heart of God. His heart is filled with great wonders that I want to experience in this life before I go Home to be with Him forever. It's not been an easy journey...it's been very, very hard at times. There has been times that I wanted to give up, give in and run away and it's in these most difficult moments that I hear His still small voice say, "Hang in there son, the best is yet to come...and son, never, ever give up."

  1. Wow God bless you, been feeling condemned and ashamed all day. I always knew this at the back of my mind but it’s encouraging hearing it from someone else
