Who says losing is bad?

Losing wars, losing sports teams, losing political campaigns, losing at daily plans? My human-wisdom says so. My human-wisdom has been WRONG multitudes of times over my life, and it has NEVER delivered happiness. Some of the best things that have ever happened to me, have come from loss. My human-wisdom had me convinced at the time, that loss was the worst-case scenario, but Jesus used that loss to do things that needed doing, needed EXPOSING. Human-wisdom knows NOTHing about what would be best in any-given situation, but Jesus not only knows best, He ALWAYS delivers what's best, though our human-wisdom HATES loss, HATES its agenda thwarted.


Thank You, Jesus, that You don't give us what our human-wisdom wants, but You give us what's BEST for us, in the long run.
