Failures are only temporary tests to prepare us for permanent triumphs. (Charles Swindoll, author and minister)

No one likes to fail, and some people never seem to recover from a failure, no matter how minor. But, as Swindoll suggests, most failures are not permanent, but they may be great learning experiences that will provide opportunities for recovery and success. He goes on to write, “Start doing something that you’ve put off because of the risk of failure.”

Though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again. (Proverbs 24:16).
