Episode 124-I am Not a Failure

Several incidents have made me feel like a failure. These triggered thoughts like, “I am fat. I am nothing.” I’ve had several of these and focusing on them kept me living in shame and condemnation for years.

The first thing many of us do when we feel we have failed is to invite condemnation and shame to flood us. When the poor, poor pitiful me syndrome happens, instead of using it to propel us to do something about our plight, we bury our sorrows in ice cream, cake or whatever addiction pops into our minds. The enemy perpetuates this.

God, though, will never stop trying to get our attention. He knows for change to happen we must invite Him to do the work within us. It’s the only way to be transformed and transformation is definitely what we want.

This is a pivotal truth we must understand to walk in God’s abundance.
