Life Got Ya Down?

"Failure is a word that I simply don't accept. As long as you don't accept it, you're not failing."
- John H. Johnson

As I was driving my littlest one to camp this morning the following came to me:

  • I will prevail against all that seeks to prevail against me.
  • I will not quit. I cannot quit.
  • I will never give up.
  • I will seek the high road during my struggles and quickly adjust when I find myself on the low road.
  • I will be at peace.
  • Nothing and no one will take my joy.I will have joy in my heart and in my life.
  • The Lord is my shepherd.
  • I will do what is necessary to succeed even if that means removing "I" from the equation.
  • I will not complain about being tired but will instead look forward to the day that I can sleep late. And if I can't, I'll keep working until I can.

I'm putting this up on my bathroom mirror alongside Psalm 23 to read aloud and repeat as many times as I must to keep my head about me when all about me are losing theirs and blaming it on me.

I hope you'll do the same.
