Great accomplishments are often attempted but only occasionally reached. (Swindoll, author)

Swindoll continues: “What is interesting (and encouraging) is that those who reach them are usually those who missed many times before. Failures, you see, are only temporary tests to prepare us for permanent triumphs.” When we can learn from our failures, we can begin to move toward worthy achievements. If you fail, get up and try again with the determination to succeed.

In everything he did he had great success, because the Lord was with him. (1 Samuel 18:14)
