I Failed God So Many Times

I failed God so many times. I messed up. It’s that simple. “I messed up,” I say to myself over and over again. The tears fall like a waterfall from my eyes and the regret starts to sink in. But what I didn’t realize was that something else was about to happen if only I would have just waited a little bit longer for it all to unfold in front of me.

I started praying. At first, it felt odd and strange, but then as the words continued to come out of my mouth, it felt natural and like home again — a place where I can go back to every time things start going south for me, which is usually always.

And then something happened.

You are stronger than you think you are.

I Failed God So Many Times

I failed God so many times

As a kid, I didn’t really think about the role God played in my life. I knew he was there and would help me out if I needed it, but that was about all.

When I was 24 years old, I made some bad decisions—decisions that led to devastating consequences for me and those around me. It took a while for those consequences to become apparent, but they did eventually come to light.

As someone who had been raised Catholic and had spent much of his life trying to live up to the standards set by his faith community, failing so spectacularly seemed impossible at first—and yet there he was: God himself standing before me with eyes wide open as he looked upon my failure with utter disappointment on his face!

I messed up. It’s that simple. “I messed up,” I say to myself over and over again.

You can still be forgiven. You can still be loved. You can still be happy, successful and a good person. These are all things I never thought I would be able to say again after my mistakes, but they are true nonetheless. I messed up—it’s that simple—but it doesn’t mean you have to live with regrets for the rest of your life or give up on yourself as a human being or even as a Christian.

There were times when I was so angry with God for how he treated me that I wanted nothing more than to leave him behind, but then something would happen that reminded me why he is worth forgiving: He always showed up in the most unexpected ways and at exactly the right time; He helped me find joy in situations where there had previously been only pain; He taught me lessons about forgiveness through his actions rather than through words alone; He led me back home when my heart couldn’t find its way there anymore; He gave me strength when all seemed lost; He made sure no one else got hurt because of my mistakes…and so much more!

But what I didn’t realize was that …

But what I didn’t realize was that …

You are stronger than you think. You can do this. You can get through this.

In my second attempt at living, I failed God many times. And each time I did, my heart broke a little more and my mind started to wander in ways that were dangerous for both me and those around me. But I kept going back for more punishment because it seemed like the only way out of my situation was death or prison—and neither option appealed to me too much at the time.

I started praying.

  • Pray. It’s one of the first things I tell people who want to get back into a good relationship with God, especially when they’ve been struggling for a long time and aren’t sure how to start.
  • Praying means talking honestly with God, letting go of worries and fears, focusing on the positive and seeing what happens next.

And then something happened.

The thing about prayer is that it’s a powerful tool. Whenever you need God, he’s there for you. And when I needed him most, he answered my prayer and showed me the path to success in my life.

I started praying by saying “God please help me.” Then I added “show me the path to success.” After that came: “help me stop failing so much.” Finally, I ended with: “please help me not mess up so often.”

You are stronger than you think you are.

It’s easy to look at life and feel like there’s no way you can make it. You’ve made so many mistakes, and it looks like things are only getting worse. But God is with you through every step of the way. He loves you just as much as he did when he first created you!

So what if your life feels hard or unfair? Remember this: God has a plan for each one of us, and it is his will that we make something good out of our pain. The Bible says “Weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5). So if right now your life seems dark, take heart—your joy will come soon enough with the dawning of another day!
