Missed Takes

I think sometimes we get so set on living a life free of guilt, consequence, and pain, that we don’t allow ourselves the grace to mess up


And maybe we even get it into our thoughts that God doesn’t allow for mess-ups either, so we live in fear of being zapped for stepping out of line.


Well, guess what. 
It’s ok to mess up. 

It’s ok to make a wrong choice.

There is a huge difference between making a mistake and acting in disobedience. 

But, there is NO difference between acting in disobedience and NOT acting in what God is telling you to do (a missed-take) even if we think we have a good reason.

Bad choices are not sinning…but bad choices provide an opportunity to sin.


Don’t be so afraid of messing up that you miss out on the great opportunities God has for you. 

Trust Him with it. 
Honor Him through it. 
And rest in Him knowing He’s got you and will never let go.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
    and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
    and he will make straight your paths.”

Proverbs 3:5-6
