Beauty Can Come From Our Mistakes

Don’t be so hard on yourself. I can bring good even out of your mistakes.  Your finite mind tends to look backward, longing to undo decisions you have come to regret. This is a waste of time and energy, leading only to frustration. Instead of floundering in the past, release your mistakes to Me. Look to Me and trust, anticipating that My infinite creativity can weave both good choices and bad into a lovely design.

Because you are human, you will continue to make mistakes. Thinking that you should live in error-free life is symptomatic of pride. Your failures can be a source of blessings, humbling you and giving you empathy for other people in their weaknesses. Best of all, failure highlights your dependence on Me. I am able to bring beauty out of the morass of your mistakes. Trust Me, and watch to see what I will do… ~Jesus calling~

Romans 8:28; Micah 7:7
