Mistake Making

images-6-2
You are going to make a mistake today.
It will not be the end of the world.
Failure is not fatal.
Jesus told a story in Matthew 25 about a servant who was so afraid to make a mistake that he decided to do nothing. He took what his master gave him to invest and he buried it.
The story ends with these words,
“Take the thousand and give it to the one who risked the most.
And get rid of this ‘play-it-safe’ who won’t go out on a limb.”
Matthew 25: 24,26,30 MSG
God is calling you to grow. Take what He has given you and invest it.
You will never get anywhere if you run back to what you know at every challenge.
A mistake means that you are trying, so pick yourself up off the ground and try again.
Do something new.
Relate to people in a new way.
Reach out beyond your comfort zone.
Take that step of faith …again.
Risk failure.
My friend, get out there and make some new mistakes today.  Get out of your comfort zone, risk and do something with the gifts God has placed in your hands.

    Thanks for this post today. Now that it has been a little over two years since my husband died, and a year after I retired from teaching in St. Louis, bought a house in Cape Coral, packed up home and studio, and moved just 10 minutes from my daughter, this past week has been as if God has suddenly opened the curtains and threw up the sash! All of the stepping stones He has placed at my feet and doors He has opened this past year, such as finding Cape Christian along with new Christian friends, has been His groundwork for my path into His desire for my future.

I love to hear from you and appreciate every comment!
