"Failure is an education, not a judgement." - Donald Miller
These words spoke loudly to me when they came across my Facebook news feed. Later on I went to dinner with a friend who was talking about facing something she was afraid of and nonchalantly said, "If it isn't perfect, the world isn't going to stop spinning." Or something to that effect.
There have been many events that have derailed me in my timeline. There have been moments of deep hurt, betrayal, manipulative and destructive 'prophetic words', abuse by spiritual authority and the list goes on...
It has taken me many years of searching and seeking the Lord for healing to get to this place that I am today. A place where I am still sorting through fragmented memories, trying to make sense of my story. Realizing that there are so many "Monsters" attached to the woundings of my heart and that in a way I have nurtured those "Monsters" and consoled them at times, believing that they were the only safe place to run to.
I think a lot of times we expect to feel confident or bold before jumping out into deep waters. The fact is confidence and boldness come with experience and experience is always preceded by faith.
