But by the Colonel’s grace even our worst failures can drive us to depend on him more. He is not pleased when you and I fail, but he’s also not surprised. He knows what you’re really like, what I’m really like. Yet still he cooks for us.
Do you need to repent and confess your culinary sins to him? Absolutely. But your failure doesn’t have to ruin your faith in him. He still has plans for you on the other side of your failure. He can use your failure to draw you closer to him, to help you learn to depend on him more, to give you another chance to get it right.
