"You can't change the past."
Yes, you can.
You can change the meaning of past failures by not giving up on your dreams.
In fact, the more we desire to grow in character the more evident our failures will be on our way to becoming what we idealize.
And with the help, power and blessing of the Lord, we can make the past mean something different.
Failures do not destroy our dreams unless we decide they have. Failures teach us what we need to know to succeed.
As James Allen said, "Circumstances do not make the man, they reveal him to himself."
I finished my third 100 mile run on my second attempt at The Georgia Jewel 100 trail race on Sunday. A race I did not finish (DNF) two years ago dropping at mile 87.
Now, when I read my old race report, history has changed, because I trusted in the LORD to provide.
2016 Georgia Jewel Race Report (DNF, 87 Miles)
Every word in that report means something different now.
