My 7th grade teacher humiliated me in front of my classmates. I felt like a failure. But I found there is a huge difference between failing and being a failure. I determined in my heart that day that I am not a failure, regardless of what my teacher told me. It was a defining moment in my life. Refuse to believe the lie. You are not a failure! Our Father God says, “You are my beloved son (or daughter), and I am pleased with you (Matt. 3:17 & John 15:9).” Get up and dust yourself off. Refuse to quit. Let’s expect the difficult situations in our lives today will become stepping stones towards fulfilling our destiny tomorrow.
You are not a failure!
