Don't Fail the Test!

Your problem IS the lesson!


Take a step back and look at your problem again.
1. What went wrong?
How and when did this problem begin?  Do you remember how you felt at that time? Were there any warnings?  What happened?

2. What is your part in all of it?
What is your part in all of this?  What did you do or what didn't you do?  What did you tolerate?  What did you cooperate with?

3. What should you do differently next time?
How else could you have handled this issue?  What should you have done that you can do better the next time, if there's a next time? How did you do this time that you should not have done?

4. How do you avoid this problem from now on?
If it's possible to avoid this problem, what must you do to avoid it from now on?  How do you separate yourself from this issue?

5. What did you learn?
What's the lesson from all of this?  What did you learn that you didn't understand before?  

God has given you grace to see, experience and make it through the issue that you have faced.  It is time to bless Him by showing that you've learned your lesson.  Walk with your head held high knowing that you've learned and that you don't have to go back to the place where you've come from.  You can stop the behaviors that brought you to that place.  You can overcome the circumstances that caused the issue to occur.  You are walking in newness.  Celebrate how good God has been to you!
