I have been thinking about what I can learn from failing my kids because of my addiction and mental illness. Working on a devotional about failure at my youbible.
Hurts like a dog. But failing is so that when I get over it I can turn and 💪 my brothers and sisters …right?
If our response to success is solely self-congratulation, we are practicing idolatry. If our response is thankfulness, then we are worshipping God. If our reaction to failure is despair, then we are feeling the hollowness of a broken idol. But if our reaction is perseverance, then we are experiencing the gracious power of God.
