An Open Letter to the Girl Who Failed

An Open Letter to the Girl Who Failed May 2, 2016

This guest post was written by Leanne J.


Dear friend,

I know who you are.

You’re the girl with the teacher who said you would never amount to anything.
The girl who looks in the mirror and sees a face full of imperfections.
The girl who trys so hard to overcome, only to succumb to the same thing over and over again.

The girl who looks to her friends with jealousy and envy.
The girl who feels like she’ll never be good enough.
The girl who feels as if she’s failed her parents.
The girl who knows no boy would ever want her.

The girl who tried her best and still failed.

And I just have one thing to say to you.

You’ve failed.

You’ve failed to see your worth and your value. You’ve failed to see that there is a God that loves, cares and knows your name. You’ve failed to see that our God is a loving God who turns broken things into something so beautiful. Sure, things may be spiraling down an unknown path but know that even if you think things are falling apart, things are falling into place.

Life can be unforgiving. Sometimes one mess up is all you need to think your life is ruined. But so the saying goes, when one door closes another one opens. I’ve had my fair share of fails that have cost me my friends, education and my relationship with God. But, if I’ve learned anything from all of this, it’s that it is possible to bounce back. I have faith in you, you can do it. Feeling discouraged is just the devil’s way of feeling better about himself. And we can’t let that happen now, can we? Listen to the words your Heavenly Father has to say about you and be,

The girl who chooses to be positive in a negative world.
The girl who looks in the mirror and sees God’s masterpiece created in His image.
The girl who tries to overcome … and knows she will defeat it with time.
The girl who looks to her friends and speaks life, blessings and encouragement.
The girl who remembers her worth, found in Jesus.
The girl who knows no matter what, she will always have her eternal Heavenly Father.
The girl who has given her heart to God and knows that He has written her love story.

The girl who tried her best … and continues to try every day. 

Your world’s not falling apart, it’s falling into place.

Have faith,
