Stand The Test

James 1:12Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. (NIV 1984)

Michael Jordan – “When I got cut from the varsity team as a sophomore in high school, I learned something. I knew I never wanted to feel that bad again. I never wanted to have that taste in my mouth, that hole in my stomach. So I set a goal of becoming a starter on varsity.”

My Musings – Set backs can defeat us, or inspire us to overcome.

My Advice – Do not let “failures” defeat you. Learn from them and use them to motivate you to do better next time.
