Everyone wants to get to the top and be a success in life. Our strongest desire to triumph still doesn’t keep us from failing at times. Some of the most successful business people in the world went through several failures before finding success. Our failures must not derail us, they have to be used as stepping stones of learning to keep climbing the ladder of success. Each failure should teach us what not to do. We always have God on our side to help put us back on track. The choice to trust God and keep climbing is up to you. (Deuteronomy 30:19 This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.) The choice to keep climbing is yours. If you want to be blessed and impart things into your children’s lives that will make a difference eternally, then choose to keep climbing and don’t give up. Each of us must decide if we will reach down deep inside and find the courage to press past fear, mistakes, mistreatment at the hands of others, seeming injustices, and all the challenges life presents. This is not something anyone else can do for us; we must do it ourselves. Make the choice to keep climbing today. There is no such thing as failure if you simply refuse to quit. Trust God to teach you through each steppingstone on your way to success. Pastor Don [image: image.png]
