Weekend Wisdom: Must Not Fail

It is a mistake to suppose that people succeed through success; they often succeed through failures.

Yesterday, the topic for WordPress’ Daily Post was “Must Not Fail.” I decided to include it in today’s Weekend Wisdom instead of bumping Jeremiah.

My “Must Not Fail” 

I must not fail at keeping my house. Now that I am back in the unemployment line, losing the house is a real possibility. I will not lose it before February 2016 but after that, if there is no steady employment paying a wage where I can pay the mortgage and other bills  – then it is Gone With The Wind.

Part Time & Seasonal 

The bank will not refinance the loan with me making $10.00 per hour at a part time or seasonal job. They will not refinance it even if I am making $10.00 per hour at a full time job.

Rent is not an option as rent in my area is the same or more than my mortgage payment.

As you can see…I must not fail.

I will not fail because God is on my side.

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Romans 8:31

New Day 

It is a new day and therefore a fresh start in life. Now God and I will seize the day and work on preventing me from failing to achieve my goal.

Supposing you have tried and failed again and again. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call “failure” is not the falling down, but the staying down.

Mary Pickford

Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I hope in Him!”

Lamentations 3:22-24
