Pressing On…

on

Just wanted to share the words of Paul in Philippians 3:12:

“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, i press on toward to goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”

As I read these words today I’m encouraged to think less and less of the past (often filled with disappointment and missed opportunities), and to start thinking more about today and the future.

This concept is both refreshing and liberating to me, but it is something that I easily forget. Just wanted to share.
