Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:18-19 NIV
I believe failure is an event, not an identity, and difficulties are opportunities for personal growth. I’ve had my share of failure and difficulty. We learn more in the dark than in the light. That’s life.
