We have all had failures. Big ones and small ones. In fact, over the course of your life, you will probably have more failures than successes. Instead of letting failure cause you to live a life of fear, shame, and guilt, rely on God. God is not vindictive or unforgiving (like Darth Vader). God is not waiting to smash you. Instead, Jesus was smashed for you. When God looks at you, he doesn’t see a failure. He sees the righteousness of Jesus. God will use all parts of your life for his good. Failure is not final; it’s what makes you fit to be saved by Jesus.
