  • Failure can be a jarring experience.  But failure does not have to be final.  Defeat does not have to be devastating.  Jesus taught us this when He said to Simon Peter “Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat; but I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brothers” (Luke 22:31-32).

  • Once there was a woman with nothing. No husband, no money, no food, no income, no prospects of anything getting better .... nothing.  She had two sons and her creditors were coming to take them as slaves.  In her nothingness, she came to a prophet of God.  She shared with him her story (2 Kings 4:1-7).
