We all make mistakes.
We all fail at things in our life. Some are big and some are small. Some are our own doing, while others are just part of life.
But that’s the way life was designed to be. It’s hard to learn what we need to learn and to become what we are supposed to be without set-backs in life.
The goal then is to learn from our mistakes and continue to try and do better. We can look at failures as just one step closer to getting it right.
There have been times in my life where I have failed at something or made a mistake—and these times can feel overwhelming, debilitating, and depressing.
As I partook of the Sacrament today in church I thought about how thankful I am for the hope that the gospel of Jesus Christ brings me. And that I can be renewed through the atonement of Jesus Christ and do better.
He has commanded us to “Be ye therefore perfect…” (Matt 5:48)
How can we be perfect if we have failed and made mistakes? It is only through Him.
Because of who He is and what He has done we can learn from our mistakes, and still return back to Him and our Father in Heaven better, stronger, and with greater knowledge.
Don’t let failures get you down. Look at them as a way to move forward and be better.
Failure is not the end of the road, it is only the beginning of the process that will lead to the next success in our life.
