Yesterday is merely a memory of the old you.
Today is a blessing to bring forth what God has put deep inside of you.
Failure is no such a thing. To put it simply, the lesson being taught, you just didn't wing.
Pick up the pieces, for forward you must go. On your journey, seek the Lord for He alone is the Mighty One, powerful enough to reveal all there is to know.
Dismiss the self-doubt for those are thoughts from the enemy. Don't you know that he doesn't want for you to become all that you can be?
Many obstacles and burdens you may face. Know that with the strength given from God, you will win the race.
Give no time to those who wish for you to not succeed, for they will remain in the same state indeed.
You stumbled as well as the rest. Remember, my dear, it was nothing more than a test.
In faults is where the true lesson is learned. Go forth, & reap your reward earned.
And endurance produces character, and character produces hope (Romans 5:4).

Great encouragement, however I would rework some of the longer sentences. Just a thought.

I agree with Margret. :) This is very encouraging and could be a powerful poem if you tightened up a bit.
