Because It’s Good When Your Girl Fails Forward

Failure. Not something that your girl likely embraces, or that she’s proud of. But what if failure was the exact catalyst she needed to achieve success in her life? That’s right—it’s GOOD to fail! Let’s call it “fail forward”.

Romans tells us that all people fall short of God’s glorious standard. He is holy and perfect. BUT God loves us, despite our imperfection—so He knows about our failures and promises to cleanse us and make us new when we lean on Him.

Whether she misses the winning goal of the soccer game, plays a wrong note in the orchestra symphony, or loses her temper yet again in your home, set her heart at ease by offering your girl gentle feedback through her failures and emphasizing the hope of improvement and change moving forward.

Romans 3:23; 1 John 1:9; Revelation 21:5
