Feel like a failure? Consider this…

Lauren Daigle didn’t get very far on American Idol the two years she tried out for the show. Yet, she is one of the biggest names in Christian entertainment today. In fact, American Idol used her song, “You Say” as an option in performances this year AND they employed her as a contestant coach. Think about that. She didn’t make the show but found success and wound up coaching. <God smiles here>

Isaiah 43:19 says, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” God makes a way when there seems to be no way. Are you watching? Are you patiently waiting? You see, if God is for us, no one can stand against us.

“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31

Listen to every word of Lauren’s song, “You Say.” This song is a chart topper on both Christian and secular radio stations. Why? Because everyone has feelings of failure and everyone needs encouragement. Christians just have the added advantage of the Holy Spirit supporting them and God being on their side. <gleeful gasp>
