Do they free you or bind you?
Do they define you or refine you?

As you read this, I pray that you consider your worst failure and realize that restoration is waiting for you to turn around.
The One who can change larva into butterflies can transform your mistakes into victory.
As I write this, I wonder what would have happened if Simon Peter had kept running after denying Jesus.
How have you allowed yourself to be disqualified from walking with Jesus because of your mistakes?
What have you learned from your mistakes that can enrich others' lives?
Lord, may we see that You are perfect and define who we are by what Jesus has done and not by what we have done. May we rise from every failure to glorify you. Amen
