Remind me that failure is the experience that precedes triumph. Teach me that forgiving is most important in the strong and that revenge is the most primitive sign in the weak. If you take away my success, let me keep my strength to succeed from failure. If I fail people, give me courage to apologize and if people fail me, give me courage to forgive them. God, if I forget you, please do not forget me.
As someone who has succeeded and failed and landed everywhere in-between, Gandhiâs words spoke to me this morning. Be kind, be forgiving, be merciful and walk humbly with your God.
Lord please keep me âright-sizedâ so that I might place my life in your hands and experience your grace in my greatest failures. At the same time donât let me ever escape the wonder and truth of being your beloved, or as John might say, âThe disciple that Jesus loved.â – connie
