I am a failure in certain aspects of life.
I have regrets and remorse.
I have felt broken and caused brokenness.
I have shamed and felt ashamed.
These failures in life should not dictate the totality of where I go and who I become.
Yes, they shape me, but they do not control me.
Yes, they grow me, but they do not hold me.
Yes, they push me, but they do not overcome me.
Like Peter said: "Lord, to whom shall we go?" John 6:68. Despite these failures, where else would I go?
