Failure is a Event not a Life Sentence
by Jennifer Molloy  
7/17/2013 / Poetry


Psalm 34:5

They looked to Him and were radiant,
And their faces will never be ashamed

Ephesians 2:7-8

so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and [a]that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;

Jesus knew we could never live our life's as the perfect image of his Son that's why we were saved by grace through our faith in Jesus Christ. We as Christians are in Jesus eyes exempt from that label of failure. When we try and fall short and we confess it to Him we are immediately forgiven and He instantly restores us to Himself and wraps us in His unconditional love.

It is only in the flesh that we give others the power to hold past failures over us and if this is done be someone we hold in high esteem that one failed event can become a life sentence. Where sorrow, self contempt, and self loathing eventually can derail a person into a life sentence of regret, remorse bitterness and sometimes total destruction.

When we really start to read and understand the scriptures that tell us about the Lord's character we really start to understand how much the Lord loves us. We can drop our guard and when we turn our faces up to him we can be radiant with joy because we know that we finally have a father that will never leave us or forsake us or be ashamed of us.

Ever since she lost her business

Her life never was the same

Someone accused her of fraud

And she had to fight to save her name

Friends and Family don't stand by her

I guess they were ashamed

It didn't even occur to them she

might not be the one to blame

Even though she went to court

and cleared her name things were not the same

The never said that they were sorry

that they misjudged her so

and misery filled her heart

and her self loathing would not go

Financial problems started it was

hard to hold a job

panic attacks soon followed

and her self-confidence was gone

Constant illness followed and

for a long time she just wished that she would die

Nobody ever really knew how close she came

to following through with suicide

For it was on that very night when

she planned to take her life

Jesus Christ was waiting to end her

pain and strive

He talked to her very soul

and filled her heart with his sweet peace

He told her that he would be there

for her and his love would never cease

It would be many years later

after seeking high and low

that she would start to really

understand him and how he loves her so

But now when something happens and

things they don' t work out the way she planned

she knows the failure is but a moment and she

can place it in Jesus hands

Knowing that she is forgiven forever

She can finally forgive herself this day

She has already forgiven the others

who helped to make her feel this way

From now on it doesn't matter

what other people think or say

the only person she seeks to please

Is Jesus Christ this day
