Reminders from God When You Feel Like a Failure

Many times we get tired of feeling like we are failing. We feel like we’re failing in our jobs, in our marriages, in our families, in our day-to-day lives, but the truth is that God didn’t promise us a lifetime of success.

Why do I feel like my work is sloppy?

Why can’t I just “win” one time?

4 Reminders When Life Gets Overwhelming

Maybe it’s a normal work week for you. You turn off your alarm clock and wipe your eyes. You pour your coffee and hit the road for work. You turn on the radio and drive.

Maybe you lose a contract at work. Maybe your husband calls you at lunch and tells you there’s a leak in the dining room and the floor is ruined. Maybe life is getting a little hard.

When little things go wrong, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. You may feel as if you’ve taken two steps forward, only to take three steps back, so how do we respond when things go wrong?
