What a weekend this has been. I am a alum of Oregon State University, and I saw my Beavers lose yet another game yesterday to the UCLA bruins. We played fairly well, but just two mistakes caused the loss of the game.
We have all made mistakes. Have you ever made one that cost you the game?
I have certainly been close. I have made many mistakes in my lifetime. I paid for some of them for many years, and learned a great deal from all of them.
Life is a learning process, and God sometimes allows us to make mistakes to learn from them.
It isn’t like we knew we were making a mistakes, we often think we made the right decision and then realize that we made the wrong turn at the crossroads.
The wonderful thing about all of this is that God allows U-turns. You can always come back to Him and ask for forgiveness. It is never too late to put on the brakes, and turn around.
Don’t let one failure cause you to give up. God was there before you made that mistake, and He will be there afterwards as well.
Turn your bitterness, and self-doubt over to Him, and feel the relief, and peace of knowing all the worry is gone.
My book, “Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World,” is all about self-doubt, anxiety, fear, depression, addictions, hopelessness, etc.
I have been to many crossroads, and I share in the book how I coped each time I reached that spot, plus how God can hold your hand through the storms.
This book may not seem exactly what you thing is right for you, but think about your friends and family. I can bet you can think of someone who would benefit a great deal from the support this book gives.
There is a special sale going on right now, and yes, it is time to start thinking about Christmas. I was in a department store last week, and they already had their Christmas stuff out.
The special price is now $15.99 for the book. In the retail stores it is $19.99. The shipping has been cut in half as well. A total savings of over $6.00.
Take time to have a look at the book, by clicking on the “Bookstore,” tab at the top of this page.
Always remember: Never, ever, give up!
