Feel Like You’ve Failed? Take Another Look Through a Godly Perspective


Have you worked hard at something only to feel like you wasted your time when it didn't come out the way you wanted? Take a closer look, and you might discover it's not the failure you thought it was. The world measures success by outcomes, whereas I believe God measures it by the love and effort we pour into what we do.


Colossians 3:23 (ESV) Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men…
  • Journal about a time you feel you failed at something from a worldly perspective. Then journal about how you think God views it.
  • What things of this world are you striving for? Journal about how you think God values those things.
  • What's one small change you can make this week to please God? At the end of the week, Journal about how it felt to make that change.
