What Failure Doesn’t Mean

Share with your friends on Facebook

Failure doesn’t mean you’ll never make it.

It does mean you have to do it differently.

Failure doesn’t mean you don’t have it.

It does mean you have to make some deep changes.

Failure doesn’t mean you’ll never succeed.

It does mean it will take longer.

Failure doesn’t mean you’re a fool to try again.

It does mean you have the courage to keep making

noble commitments and great resolutions.

Failure doesn’t mean God doesn’t answer prayers.

It does mean that God has a better idea.

The next morning he unleashed his creative genius in a musical score that continues to thrill and inspire us generations later.      A God Provide
