Fear of Failure

Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Most often, the WISEST one in the room is the one who makes the MOST mistakes.

I used to have a fear of failure. It stifled me. And it caused a form of bondage that I did not like. I felt like I was being suffocated. I could tell that my growth and progress was being hindered.

Pastor Pam has helped me SO MUCH in this area. Her example of embracing her mistakes and not being phased by them, but rather seeing the lesson in them has helped me to understand the importance of humility, as well as how mistakes can help us learn and grow. I used to be so indecisive because I was worried about the outcome. I am no longer ruled by my anxiety of what may or may not happen. Life goes on. Ya live and ya learn.

God is so amazingly patient with us. As mistakes happen, I believe that he watches us, and allows us to keep falling, so that we can figure out our mistakes, fix them, and apply what we have learned to the next similar situation.

Humility is KEY here. You have to allow yourself to fall, so that you can see where you messed up, and examine yourself to see how you handle certain situations, and what you can do better next time. The more mistakes you make, the WISER you become.

“Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you.“

“The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.” (Proverbs 4:6-7)

God does not expect us to look perfect before him. BE YOU! Allow yourself to mess up. Even our best is like filthy rags to God, anyway. You don’t have the power to cleanse yourself. Only God can do that. Perfectionism is from the enemy because it tricks you into thinking that you can’t make a mistake. And then it makes you feel like you have to do religious works in order to appear righteous, Holy, and perfect.

Don’t let the enemy keep you in bondage just because you made a mistake. Allow yourself to GROW!
