Facing failures

Posted Tuesday October 25, 2016 by slm

In my year as a Salesian Lay Missioner, the greatest lesson God had prepared for me was how to face my failures with an attitude of Christian charity. I was nowhere near being a perfect missionary, but I learned to accept my mistakes, be humbled by them, and offer them back to God. I came to realize as an SLM that God wants all of me (even the parts of myself I try to hide from him) and that despite my brokenness, He can work through me to greet the children he entrusted to my care.
