Keep Pushing

15 02 2017

 I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. Philippians 3:12-14

I can’t give up now. My future is ahead.  If I keep putting one foot in front of the other, it won’t be long before I will be in another place and time.  So we keep pushing.  We keep seeking God’s direction.  We keep listening for His voice for the next steps and plans.  We keep trusting that His instruction is working everything together for our good.  Every step of the way, we are centered in His love.  Every step we can trust Him and experience His peace.  I am pushing on.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5- 6

I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.  Philippians 3:14

I’m moving forward is my affirmation for this year.  I am moving, I am pressing and I am making progress toward who God is calling me to be and what God is calling me to do.  I am focused on what is ahead.  I am not stuck in the past.  I am not nursing old wounds.  I am walking in forgiveness.  I am healed in my mind body and soul.  I am moving forward in Him.

My heart and my will are committed to doing the work to make it ahead; the daily prayer, reading His bible, and heeding the Holy Spirit throughout the day.  I am not hindered by the distractions of the world.  I am not wasting precious time.  I am moving forward in Him.

I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.  Philippians 3:12-14
