Have you ever tried to overcome, achieve or go to to the next level in any situation but you kept on failing? In those moments you can't help but feel like the dumbest person ever, cause for some reasons you cannot get the job done. Then you feel ashamed and unhappy with yourself, with God and the people around you. I also felt this way numerous times, especially when I was trying to get a driver's license!!! The most frustrating experience ever, cause I had to take the test more than three times, but I still did not get it! sighhhh:( I felt so dumb, ashamed and angry because my friends and other people around me were getting theirs without a problem. The most difficult thing with those kind of situations is the fact that we lose excitement, hope and the taste of life. However, this is the problem we have in our society: trying to do in order to be respected and accepted instead of being appreciated for who we are. In this society, we are defined by what we do or accomplish not by who we are or our character, and it makes it hard to have self-confidence to try again but we can't give up.
I really felt like writing this today to encourage someone out there: fail your failures and be your victory! you are not your failures but you are already what you are trying to accomplish! those failures are meant to build our character so that we can handle the success. Hold on still my friends out there, because the truth is: we are more than conquerors in every situations we go through!
Consider it pure joy, my brothers, when you encounter trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.… James 1:2
