“But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus” Philippians 3:13-14

Sometimes we dwell in the past and have difficulty moving along. We forget God plans purpose in the timing of our days. He uses what's been left behind to welcome what’s to come and provides the way to renew us. 

Jesus paid the price for our sin. In the midst of recognizing our inadequacies, He guides us to the truth. He helps us examine our hearts and reminds us we are more than our mistakes. He leads us on a path of righteousness and prepares us to be blessed. 

We won’t have eternity here on earth to accomplish God’s will. We must let go of the past and strain toward what is ahead, as we diligently work and run hard! God will bless the heart of our faithfulness and He will grow us. He will help us obtain the heavenly prize, if we fix our eyes on Him and just keep running... 

Dear God, Thank you for reminding us to keep on going. You are mighty, holy and true! Forgive us when we forget to trust in the timing of Your will. As Jesus opens our hearts to truth, we will set our eyes on You and welcome opportunity to grow in Your greatness. We will forget what’s behind and find strength, as we run to YOU. Amen
