Mistakes are Proof We’re Living.

I’ve made many mistakes in the last year alone, not to mention my whole life.

Still, my unremarkable old matters and so does yours.

Without it, there is no messy, extravagant new worth stepping into.

In my Unremarkable Old:

I allowed fear to control my actions.
I valued safety, comfort, and security higher than a life of risk, hardship or peril.
I did not live to serve others.
I was half-heartedly present.
I was the most important person in my life.

In The Messy, Extravagant New:

Love influences (and inspires) my actions.
Risk, hardship, and peril are valued higher than safety, comfort, or security.
Living is to serve others.
I admit the half-hearted struggle and am discovering the wholehearted present.
Jesus is the most important person in my life.

How do you handle your mistakes?
