Most likely, your soul is covered with scars from being wounded. Some have come from people you care about, others from terrible mistakes you’ve made and still others from life just happening. After awhile, it can be awfully tempting to see yourself as a failure, begin to act like you’re a failure and invite others to treat you as a failure. But, regardless of how convinced you are that you are, God wants you to know you’re not. What is more, God wants to help you break the “I’m a failure” cycle. So God pours out healing love, strengthening presence and transforming power. It probably will take awhile, involve hard work and challenge you to trust God like you’ve never trusted God before. But you can do it. You really can. Because God’s going to stay right by your side until you really, really, really experience that you’re not a failure, but God’s beloved.
