Columbus with a compass

I’m sure Columbus was mad when he figured out this wasn’t what he was looking for. He had the tools he needed and still ended up in a place different than he imagined. I’m sure he was heartbroken, humiliated, and felt like a complete failure. But, if he could see the effect he had by making what he thought was a mistake, I bet he would have a change of heart. He turned out to be right where God had planned. So today,  my advice (mostly for myself, but for anyone that needs it) is to count your “failures” as success. What you consider humiliation and heartbreak could be your grand kid’s inspiration to carry-on with their dreams. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Remember Jeremiah 29:11. Know that God’s got this! Go with the flow. Don’t let these waves wash away your hopes! 
Jeremiah 29:11 KJV
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
