They all Failed but God used them. Failure is not final or fatal. The Father is going to love you, in the midst of failure. Remember these three verses:

For though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again, Proverbs 24:16a

Why dies this person rise again? Because the strength of God flows in and though their body.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 You are forgiven because the Father knows who you and your habit of going it alone, so He provided a way for you to live without the weights of guilt, which will lead you back to performing for Him.
