Fail Away

Dear New Year People,

“Do not remember the former things , or consider the things of old. I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? “ Isaiah 43:18-19 NRSV

I hope one of the things I do more of in 2014 is fail. “If you are not making mistakes, you’re not taking risks, and that means you’re not going anywhere. The key is to make mistakes faster than the competition, so you have more chances to learn and win. ” JohnW. Holt Jr.  I am not real sure I need to be seen as the winner at another’s expense. However, I would like to learn new things and experience fresh adventures. The only path I know of into the new is through risk and potential failure. The world tells me to fear failure and the embarrassment it draws. The Christ Child offers me identity as his friend which no failing can take away. Through Christ Jesus I can take courage to step into the new so the joy of my full potential in Jesus might be realized.

May 2104 reveal spiritual powers to fail!

Pastor David J. Jensen
