When You Feel Like A Failure


Hi, my name is Toni, and I feel like a failure. I’ve been blogging for so many years now, and it was going great until 2016. Then it nearly stopped or slowed way down I guess would be more correct. When it halted, I felt like a failure. Today, I have been really feeling like a failure even more than usual, and I’m trying to remember that my worth isn’t in my blog, God created me to be amazing, but when you are part of your home’s income, it’s hard not to feel like a failure when your income source pretty much dries up.

Today, as I tried to figure out how certain things were going to work out, or what I could/should do next, all I could think was “You have failed, Toni.”

I immediately got in the word and prayed, but when you feel like you aren’t pulling your weight, it’s hard to hear God’s calming voice over what Satan is whispering in your mind.

So, today I am feeling like a failure, and I’m scared, and I think it’s okay to admit that. It’s just being real. And that’s what people reading blogs want, right? They want to know that we aren’t always picture perfect, but we are real, and we have hardships and hard moments in life.

But how I am feeling today, I won’t let it define me. I know my worth, even if today it’s a bit harder to find and I have to dig a bit deeper. I will pray and let God remind me over and over that I am not, in fact, a failure, but that I am valuable. That there is a plan in action. After all, sometimes the biggest blessings come from the trials you feel like you aren’t going to make it through.
