Movement and Mistakes

[pullquote1 quotes="true" align="center" variation="deepblue" textColor="#000000"]The only way to avoid mistakes is to do nothing. And doing nothing in itself can be a mistake.[/pullquote1]

This week has been a great week of reflection for me. It's  been seventeen years of ministry, as I look back I see a lot of things I will do differently as I move forward. I've made some mistakes along the way but I welcome the opportunity to learn and grow from those mistakes. As I reflect I realize movement comes with mistakes. Wouldn't it be great if we could go through life and never make mistakes!

The fear of making a mistake keeps many from moving forward. This fear is sometimes paralyzing and cripples a person's pursuit of purpose but only if they allow it to.

One of the biggest favors we can do ourselves is to realize we're going to make mistakes, there's no way around it. Once we're able to embrace that truth and cast off the desire to be perfect in man's perception of what it means to be perfect we can then embrace the process of growth the Lord has for us. Yes, we each have a process.

It's is easy to say If I do nothing I won't have to concern myself with making a mistake without realizing that doing nothing IS a mistake.
