275 A Simple Need

 275 A Simple Need

If we are not failing once in a while we are not active enough.


Our primary need is simple; being the individual we are. All we need has already been given to each of us. Our part is to remember the gift and live it as directed. Our Program suggests; the only requirements are honest, willingness, open-mindedness and a genuine striving for perfection. We are likely discouraged by failure or we may learn from it. Let the "F" not stand for failure but let’s start with Forgiveness, Fun, Flowing with grace and Finding our true place here and now. I would suggest that we fail frequently so we can find out quicker who we are intending to be. "We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in Him. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect." (1 John 4:16-17) Beyond our experience pure faith and pure love remain a mystery because it is infinite and our experience is finite. The love we have now is enough to grow on.


1. In our world most of us are thought to avoid failure at all cost, is this so with you?

2. What have you learned from your mistakes?
