Not Failed… Unfinished

By Bindu Adai Mathew

 

As long as you are alive, you have not failed. You have the chance to make right what you have done wrong. You have the chance to complete what you have left unfinished.

Completing a goal is challenging. It requires planning. It requires effort, consistency, and perseverance. But sometimes it’s easier to beat ourselves up and feel sorry for ourselves rather than do what needs to get done. Sometime it’s easier to just stop trying.

But that’s not what God has intended. He created you for a purpose. The fact that you’re still breathing means that you still have work to do. You have a goal to reach… a project to complete. You still have a purpose to fulfill.

Rather than looking at your past as a series of failures, realize that those efforts were just incomplete. You didn’t finish, but you still can.

One of the most powerful words that were spoken in history were by Jesus as He was hanging on the cross and said, “It is finished.” He completed what He had set out to do.

And you can, too. In Christ, you will.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
