Funny, when I saw the word "failure" emotions of hurt, shame and disappointment of the past crept inside of me. Sometimes I felt like "failure" was my first and middle name. I failed my parents by getting pregnant without being married. I failed myself because I knew better but I acted like I didn't care. I failed at accomplishing my dreams because I was undecided on what I wanted to do. I failed at the many male relationships that went sour because I cared more than they cared. I was interested in becoming an aerobics teachers but I failed the test that would qualify me. I don't want this to sound like a sad sorry but failure has been apart of my life. Yet failure brings on strength. Strength to continue to go on even if I fail a thousand times. I know that I will eventually make it.
When I think of my many failures, if it wasn't for God and his power to maintain I would have stop dreaming and I would stopped trying. Trying to accomplish and make my dream come true.
My favorite character in the bible that failed miserably was David. Yet, he was a man after God's own heart. David killed a man and he committed adultery but even in his failures God still loved and used David. In today's society, when failure is known, man tells us that our life is over. But God, uses our failure for his glory. He's the only who can take a single parent and then give her a godly man. God is the only one who after failing several courses in school recieves a degree with humbleness and shock. God is the one that when adultery is committed numerous time, that spouse stays with you and even loves you more. Yes, God turns our failure into future wins. What a God!!!! Confession is admitting how much we failed to an all knowing God. You know Failure ain't so bad when God is there to fix and heal the failure. Confession then

Powerful story. I became very confused at the end though, your last sentence is incomplete. One word you might want to change is 'ain't'.
