Philippians 3:12-14 – Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, 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 the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. (NIV)
You can’t move forward if you keep looking backwards. Think about. If you’re running you’ll slow down (or even fall) if you keep looking behind you. It’s a crazy cycle we get on, or at least I do. Trying to move on, but still dwelling in the past. Past hurts, failures, sins, anything negative, we seem to dwell on. Rather than continuously looking behind, let’s strive to look ahead. Keep on pressing on. It wont be easy, but with God ALL things are possible (Matthew 19:26). Lord help us press on and strain towards what is ahead and help us to forget what is behind.
Blessings 💛 Sarah
