I am no stranger to failure.
I’ve failed licensing exams multiple times. Been passed over for promotions.
Ended engagements and
Felt the betrayal of friendship.
And then after being laid off I became an entrepreneur who learns through what doesn’t work. Again failure.
This week, I even failed at my calling.
Is that even possible?
You betcha it is because I just did it.
I fumbled and fouled up those things that God calls me to do. Those things we aren’t at all naturally equipped for.
Not naturally equipped means it’s a set up for something to go wrong.
And it did. Publicly.
“Why does this happen to me?”
Because God does his best work in weakness.
Because he wants us to stop striving and to just be real, and raw, and messy.
I don’t like weakness and messy.
I like neat and orderly.
