Life isn’t easy. Try as we might, we all come face to face with hardships, challenges, and setbacks. We have all suffered heartache, disappointment, and even outright personal failure at one time or another in our lives. It’s just how life is and no one is immune to this reality. No one. Whether it is our own fault or the fault of someone else, the longer we live, the more we face personal challenges in our lives. There are no exceptions. THIS is life. Are you still with me?
Welcome. My name is David Ward and I know a little about this kind of stuff – first hand. Yes, I know. It’s not cool to admit weakness, failure, hardship, or that we feel overwhelmed and uncertain about our lives. This is especially true in today’s self-love-seeking, “fake it until you make it” culture. But let’s be real for a moment. Who hasn’t failed miserably at some point in their life? The person who says they haven’t made mistakes or had errors in judgment is living in self-deception. This website is NOT for the self-righteous, the judgmental, or the clueless. It is for those who want real success in life – spiritually, emotionally, physically, and financially.
I HAVE BEEN THERE
There is nothing that you could tell me about your life that would shock me. Absolutely nothing. I’ve had my share of disappointments and betrayals in relationships. I’ve experienced setbacks and failures in my personal life and business. I’ve failed or fallen short in all of the most important things in life – in relationships, marriage, parenting, and business. And, I confess that almost all of these negative things that have impacted my life have been the result of my own doing. That’s right. I can’t blame anyone but myself for most of my hardship, struggles, setbacks, and failures. Yes, there are events that happen in our lives that are out of our control and these events can have a profoundly negative impact on our lives if we don’t seek out the help that we need to get through it. But, in most instances, most of the hardship we face in life is of our own doing, our own foolishness, and even our outright sin and rebellion against God’s plan for our lives.
THE GOOD NEWS
“No matter how unbearable life may get, no matter how discouraged you may become, and no matter how hopeless you think your situation is, THERE IS HOPE. You CAN experience God’s best for you in life. You CAN experience spiritual, emotional, physical, and financial success!“
The good news is that personal failure in life is rarely fatal. While there may be consequences to our foolishness, mistakes, stupidity, or sin, life doesn’t end just because we’ve made a mess of our lives. There is always light at the end of the proverbial tunnel. No matter how unbearable life may get, no matter how discouraged you may become, and no matter how hopeless you may think your situation is, THERE IS HOPE. You CAN experience God’s best for you in life. You CAN experience spiritual, emotional, physical, and financial success! I promise.
