As someone who has failed time and time again, I cannot agree enough about how God uses our failures for our good and through our failures and eventual success we can ultimately glorify Him. Of course, in our moments of failure it's hard to see this, especially as I am a person who struggles immensely with pride.
In addition, while reading this post I reminded myself that I not only need to go to God in prayer but also wait to hear from Him. The reference between the Israelites and Benjamin was a fitting example.
Thanks for sharing, Mags! God bless!
