When I wrote my first book, Prayers From The
Throne of God, Dr. Jack Hayford honored me by writing the foreword.
During a phone conversation with Pastor Jack, I mentioned I was worried
about the book having grammatical mistakes. Jack said, “All books have
mistakes. Just publish it!” All of a sudden the weight I carried as a
new author fell from my shoulders as I received the words of a wise man.

This applies so much to how we choose to live our lives. Some
of the best advice I could ever give a person would be – Just live it!
You will make mistakes, but don’t let the fear of a mistake hold you
back from what God has asked you to do. A lot of life goes unpublished
because we live with the illusion that what we do for God will be
without mistakes. This is not true. After my first book was published
there were several mistakes found after the proof readers had signed it
off as ready for publication. The same thing just happened with book
number five. Such is the essence of living. Just live it and give the
mistakes to God.

    I needed to hear this. I am constantly worried about making more mistakes. I have made so many that I live in constant fear of failing again. It seems to take me forever to recover and to stop the negative self talk.
