" Thank God For Failures"

Today many still argue issues of life so boring, to lengthen this life of snoring.

Are girls better than boys and who has the best toys, then when older, are men better than women, and where have gone life's joys, or why has this life grown colder?

How can we appear forever young outside, when our real beauty inside do hide?

Our life is not from where we are from, but how this way we have become.

You had a sweetheart to hurt you so badly, but now they to have known you remember gladly.

With each heartache come to you , you've received from God, more strength to get you through.

You loved your dad now gone, and when he died oh how you cried, but are now so thankful to just have known.

With each one I've let down and with each time I should have smiled but had a frown, or each time should have spoken, but out of my mouth came not a sound, I am so thankful God is still around.

Many are the times I've failed friends and family or failed to be a good husband for my wife, but these failures were not bogged in strife, rather added strength to my life.

There is so much from failure I've come to know, and how it is essential in life if we will grow.

Today I thank God for my failures, which illustrate in my life the more of God I need, and without failures I will never succeed.

Philipians 4:6-7

6..Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God...7..And the peace of God which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Thanksgiving is a year round holiday for Christians..We spend so much time wanting and working for more in our lives, that we forget just how blessed we've been..It is impossible to be happy in life and not realize from where our real life has come..Many Christians have eternal life but have not recognized it as Life Abundant..Their life seems to be summed up with temporal posessions..John 10:10..The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly...Our life is so much more than posessions or aquiring them..Life is recognizing without Christ you have nothing, and with Christ you have all..Stop today and thank God for all He's given you..You will finally realize what the abundant life is all about..Have a great day and May God Really Bless You.
