WHEN SOMETHING GOES WRONG
Things will go wrong in life.
When they do – here is what I want those close to me to do.
1. STAY CLOSE AND COVER ME WITH LOVE
Stay close and be a friend who believes in me – so your love can bring me to the light of truth.
Love covers a multitude of sins.
Not with secrecy – but with the love of God – who can restore all things.
I need truth that can heal and restore to wholeness and blessing.
2. HELP ME ADMIT MY FAILURE
Without repentance there can be no remission.
Until we take responsibility for our failures we will always do what the original sinner did – blame someone else. The woman made me do it!
3. SPEAK THE TRUTH CLEARLY INTO MY LIFE
Truth sets a person free.
If you speak the truth in love – you are my friend.
Only the truth of God’s word can revive my spirit – restore my soul, and reverse my circumstances.
4. SET A TIME FRAME FOR RESTORATION
Restoration is essential for the human soul. Punishment does not restore. Restoration is always for the good of the one who has failed.
Setting a time frame is essential to keep hope alive. It is not the length of the restoration period – but the depth of involvement by the restorers.
5. BELIEVE WITH ME THAT THE BEST IS YET TO COME
Keep hope alive. Restoration to wholeness does not ignore the consequences of actions. Pay the price whatever it costs and look to the future for greater things.
Coming back from failure is the true sign of greatness.
