Never Try, Never Know

Regret is an awful thing. It sits on our minds day after day wondering about all the “what ifs” and outcomes that we could’ve had. More often than not, there are things we wish we could’ve done and things we know we should’ve done. It can be a painful cycle, and God addresses it in the Bible.

Have you never said “no” to an opportunity and immediately regretted it later that day? Your mind knows when you’ve missed out on a chance or did something you maybe shouldn’t have done.

I always think about what would’ve happened if I never would have started my YouTube channel or if I never would’ve moved to Atlanta. These thoughts make me say “yes” to more opportunities and push me to try new things I wouldn’t have in the first place. Everything we’ve done in the past is a puzzle piece to who we are today.

God wants us to get out of our comfort zones. No one ever said following Him is easy, and He planted a bold and courageous heart in all of us for a reason. Look at Deuteronomy 31:6 for example: “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Think of who your “them” might be. Are they your friends? Your family? Are they the people you’re trying constantly to impress?

Although this verse was written for a completely different situation, we can still apply it to whatever situations we ourselves are going through. We need a bold and courageous heart along with the confidence of knowing God will never leave us in order to leave comfort behind and try something out of the ordinary.

John 14:27 says, “Peace I leave with you; peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

We could either listen to Jesus who gives us peace, or we could listen to the world, in fear of rejection and judgement. Some things you have to do for yourself, despite the thoughts and opinions of others. I mean hey, if you never try, you truly will never know!

Never let your hearts be troubled over something that you’re passionate about. Deep regret and the unknown of the “what ifs” is much worse than trying and failing. God wants our hearts to guide us, and if you’re feeling called to do something, then take the leap and do it!

God only gives us 365 days a year. What do you say we make them count?

Failing is part of life, but no one said it has to be an easy part. It can make you feel depressed, inadequate, and can sometimes be embarrassing. Rejection is tough, and how you deal with it can really determine how successful and happy you are. Being resilient is such an important quality have. Resilience is the ability to take failure and rise above it! How do you get over failure and persevere through it? Here are 4 ways to be resilient.

  1. Don’t ignore your emotions: Looking at the bright side of a situation isn’t always realistic, especially when you are feeling like a failure. Let yourself feel the sad emotions, don’t try to push them down. Once you have allowed yourself to feel the negative emotions you leave room for the positive ones to take over!
  2. Be realistically optimistic: Life isn’t always rainbows and butterflies, we all know that. Just know life has ups and downs and that life isn’t going to be easy all of the time. Keep a positive outlook on things, but also be realistic.
  3. Have a strong support system: This is so important. Always having a strong network of friends and family that support you is vital for when you come across hard times. They will be right there by your side when times get tough and will help you back up when you fall. They can build your happiness back up and make you feel more resilient!
  4. Be grateful: Appreciate all of the positive things in your life, take joy in your victories no matter how small they are. When you are positive even about the small things, the big things don’t seem so bad. Have an attitude of gratitude and be thankful for everything going RIGHT in life.

Life is tough, but you are tougher!

When all else fails, God doesn’t. That’s what Psalm 73:26 tells us. “My flesh may fail, but God is the strength of my heart; He is mine forever”

It is inevitable. People will fail you. They will disappoint you. Your body will get sick and your mind will make you doubt yourself. This life is tough! But that’s why God gave us the Bible, so that we can read it and be encouraged. He reminds us that when all else fails, when we are discouraged and feel helpless, God won’t fail us. He is our strength. He is with us forever. How awesome is that? We will fail a lot in this life. What’s important is that we put our Faith and Trust in God because He will never fail.

Don’t let your failures define you, because the one that made you never makes mistakes. You are the way you are because He made you that way! You are perfect in His sight.

Failure can be a terrifying thing. You may think you have everything figured out until life takes an unexpected turn. You may be confused and not understand why you can’t succeed. There is much to know about failure including all of the wonderful blessings hidden throughout it. If you’re trying to get through a time of disappointment or failure, then this article is for you!Chelsea Crockett - Failure Quote

In 2 Corinthians 4:2, it says “We are persecuted, but God does not leave us. We are hurt sometimes, but we are not destroyed.” Even back in biblical times, God’s people felt pain, rejection, and of course, failure. Proverbs 24:16 says, “The righteous may fall seven times but still get up, but the wicked will stumble into trouble.” Like the picture above, God wants us to persevere, especially through times where we don’t believe we can.

I know you all have heard me talk about the verse Jeremiah 29:11 a numerous amount of times… But if you don’t know it, it says, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” I’ve always loved this verse because it constantly reminds me that I shouldn’t be afraid of failure or a little fork in the road. At the end of the day, God will provide a better plan than we could ever put together ourselves. Trust in God and know that we will be successful if we simply follow Him!
