What to do when you feel like a failure?



Though the mountains be shaken, and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken, nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you. – The Bible. 

There are dreams for everyone. When we were small, we used to look at every high-flying aircraft. We used to wonder when we get to travel in one of those. There are aspirations within every heart. We want to be somebody we aspire to be. We have goals and visions for our future. Our heart ponders and builds expectations about our future. The expectations in our life were founded on our dreams and aspiration. Then comes the critical moments that decide and define our dreams. That defining moment could be an exam or a job interview that is crucial for achieving our dreams. When we stumble and fail to qualify in those moments then our heart shatters into thousand pieces.

We might have shared our aspirations with many people. What will happen if they come to know that we have failed to achieve our dreams? The thoughts about being classified as a failure haunt the mind. 

God wants you to see what you can’t see:

Dear friend, if you are one of those who are going through failures in life, we would like to pray for you. We understand your heartaches and deepest cries. More than us, God who created you has the utmost care for your life. He can open many other doors for you. God wants to lift you up so that you can see your future clearly. We can not read what is written in distance due to the limitation of our eyes. We can not hear what is spoken in silence due to the limitation of our ears. But God has no limitations. He can foresee our future. The God who knows your past, present, and future also knows, what is best for your future life. If only, if you allow Him in your life, Jesus can mend all the broken pieces of your life. He wants to wipe away the tears and comfort you right now. It does not matter where you are or what you are going through, Jesus is with you right now. He wants to speak to you. 

Your future is secured: 

An artist has an entire picture of the art before he puts the first stroke of his brush. The potter knows what he wants to make even while he prepares the clay. God knows about you even before you were formed in your mother’s womb. God says in the Bible, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you“. King David wrote, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

All along your life, Jesus was a silent companion, good friend, trusted mentor, worthy counselor, and a great fan of all the good things you have done. Whether you realize his presence in your life or not, Jesus was with you all along. You may not have admired him so much. But He admires you every moment. He was happy when you were happy. Like a loving father, He waited for you when you went far away from His presence.

Dear friend, you do not have to worry about what others are thinking about you. You don’t have to worry about your past failures. You can boldly walk forward toward your future. Lift up your eyes toward Jesus. He said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest“. Jesus wants to fill your life with peace. He wants to show you a new way to move forward. He is a waymaker and miracle worker. Throw away all your anxieties about the future. Ask God to lead you. 

Let’s go to the presence of Jesus and pray to Him. Please place your hand on your heart and call upon the name of Jesus. Pray the below prayer in your own words from the bottom of your heart. Jesus is listening. We are praying along with you.

Dear Jesus, I come to you with a humble heart. You are my savior. You know my broken heart. Jesus, you know about my past failure. You alone can mend my heart. You alone can lift me up from all the shame. Please wipe away all my tears. Please show me away. I surrender my life into your hand. Please mold me. Hold my hands and lead me. You alone can answer my prayers. Please comfort my heart. Take away all the hurt and the pain. You are our God. Please lift me up. Show me what I should do next. I pray in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen. 

If you give us a moment, we would like to pray for you. We may not know you, but we love you and want to pray for you. Let’s pray to Jesus. 

Dear Jesus, we are praying along with the dear brother or sister who is praying with us today. Jesus, all things are possible for you. Please fill their life with your heavenly peace. Forgive all their past mistakes, if any. Wash them with your precious blood. You are the God who died for them. You loved them so dearly. Help them to see that you dearly care for them. You alone can lift them and carry them in your arms. You have a great purpose for them. Jesus, take away all the negative thoughts from their mind. Wherever they are right now, please touch their life. We humble ourselves before you. We believe you are going to answer this prayer. In the mighty name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
