There are times that I failed yet I know Failure gives color and spice to my life... sharing you this poem given to me by my wonderful friend...
Failure does not mean you are a failure;
It only means you have not succeded yet
Failure does not mean you have accomplished nothing;
It only means you have learned something
Failure does not mean you have been a fool;
It does mean you have a lot of faith
Failure does not mean you have been disgraced;
It does mean you were willing to try
Failure does not mean you are inferior;
It does mean you are not perfect
Failure does not mean you have a wasted life;
It does mean you have a reason to start afresh
Failure does not mean you should give up;
It does mean you should try harder
Failure does not mean you'll never make it;
It does mean it will take a little longer
Failure does not mean God has abondoned you;
It does mean God has a better idea.
God uses our failures to mold us into a better person He wants us to be.Let us be assured that no matter how many times we fail, God has a purpose. He is always Faithful and True! He will never leave us nor forsake us coz He loves us so much! Let us stand firm in our faith and put on always the Armor of God in our lives to prepare us in fighting our daily battles in this world. Jesus Christ has conquered the world for us. Greater is He that is in us! The battle is His, not ours! Let's be strong and rejoice in the Lord always.
JESUS CHRIST, the only WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE! Who was and who is to come!
God's grace is always sufficient to sustain us.
Have a blessed day!
May God bless you with His peace,joy,blessings, and awesome love always!
In Christ's Love,

For he has not ignored the suffering of the needy. He has not turned and walked away. He has listened to their cries for help.
When you feel like God has walked away. Remember he hasn't just call on him and most of all praise him. And he will move right on the scene.... Lord, I want to thank you today for always being there and never leaving us. Even when we feel like you have. Thank you Lord, for saying you will never leave us or forsake us. In Jesus name I pray Amen.

The first day of the 9th month of the year 2005... Oh la..la..la... What I have in here is the devotion that I have today... just sharing you what I got in here...
The foolish will miss heaven’s wedding feast
1"Then the kingdom of heaven shall be compared to ten maidens who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3 For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them; 4 but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. 5 As the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. 6 But at midnight there was a cry, `Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.' 7 Then all those maidens rose and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said to the wise, `Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.' 9 But the wise replied, `Perhaps there will not be enough for us and for you; go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.' 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast; and the door was shut. 11 Afterward the other maidens came also, saying, `Lord, lord, open to us.' 12 But he replied, `Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.' 13 Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.
When I was not a Christian I know I am missing out on what's most important in life? Being unprepared can lead to a lot of unnecessary trouble and even disastrous consequences! What good is a life-jacket left on shore when the boat is sinking? Jesus’ story of ten silly girls seems strange to westerners today. But his audience knew all too well how easily this could happen to them. Wedding customs in ancient Palestine required extra vigilance and preparation for everyone involved. (Some near eastern villages still follow this custom.) The bride and groom did not go away for their honeymoon, but celebrated for a whole week with their family and friends. It was the custom for the groom to come at his discretion and get his bride and bring her to the wedding party. If he came at night lamps were required by necessity. To show up for a night party without a wedding garment and a lamp is like showing up for a play or movie that requires a reservation and a ticket. You just don’t get in without the proper pass. Can you imagine the frustration one experiences in traveling abroad and finding out you can’t get into some country because you don’t have a valid passport or visa.
Jesus warns us that there are consequences for being unprepared. There are certain things you cannot obtain at the last moment. For example, a student cannot prepare for his exam when the day of testing is upon him. A person cannot get the right kind of character or skill required for a task at hand unless he already possesses it. Our eternal welfare depends on our hearing, and many have trained themselves to not hear. We will not be prepared to meet the Lord, face to face, when he calls us on the day of judgment, unless we listen to him today. The Lord invites us to feast at his banquet table. Are you ready?
"Lord, make me vigilant and attentive to your voice that I may heed your call at all times. May I find joy in your presence and delight in doing your will."
