Michaela O’Donnell Long writes about how we can learn to fail in ways that help us, give us insight and propel us forward and not debilitate us. “I have found the practice of lament to be particularly helpful in my work as an entrepreneur. I like to think of lament as a way to tether myself to structure in the midst of chaos. I learned a long time ago that God can handle my anger and my pain, and that cross of Christ is not a place reserved only for when I succeed. Rather, the cross of Christ is a place where death is acknowledged and held.”
