Total Failure?

Failure -–noun
an act or instance of failing or proving unsuccessful; lack of success: to fall short of success or achievement in something expected, attempted, desired, or approved

Ever wonder if you are a total failure? Ever have someone tell you in some way or another that you are a total failure? Ever have someone say something that made you feel like you are a total failure?

So I've spent the last hour crying out to God because I feel like a major Failure in life.. not becuase of me.. well maybe because of me but because of how someone said something or another... Looking back, aren't we all failures? Don't we fall short of God, of course, but that doesn't mean we are failures at everything in life does it?

I dunno? I don't have all the answers I am still pondering in my head. Maybe Failure is to hard of word, isn't God's grace large enough to cover my failures in life, isn't God's grace large enough to cover my screw ups and my emotional wreck.... I think it is... I just think its hard.. when someone tells you or considers you a failure for not living up to their standard, for not growing enough for them to see, but doesn't God grace cover this as well, Doesn't God jump up adn down for joy at every small thing we learn and doesn't God love us no matter who we are, no matter where we are?

I like your comment that we all fall short and I love that that is followed up by grace.

I screw up so much everyday continually and everynight I always think, "God, I blew it today. But I thank You for loving me and forgiving me through it all."

And then the hope is it is like Pat and his car story at the hardware store. But sometimes I dwell too much.

(PS You are one of the most loving, serving, amazing, successful women I know. Just think how amazing God thinks you are?)
