DON'T LOOK BACK


Our minds often go back to times when we were hurt, rejected,
overlooked, abused, neglected, and left all alone. Dwelling on
these times keeps us from moving forward in our Christian walk.
We are not to focus on all that happened in the past, but look
forward to that place God wants us to be. We will never forget
all that has happened, we just cannot allow ourselves to get
stuck there. Keep going forward; God is waiting for us there.

Heavenly Father, we ask your forgiveness for letting our
minds and our memories keep us from growing in you. Help
us to keep our eyes fixed on you and your plan for our lives,
which is becoming more like Christ. In Jesus' name.

Read Philippians 3:13,14

"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 the goal to win the
prize for which God has called me heavenward for Christ
Jesus." (NIV)

"Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this
one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and
reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press
toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in
Christ Jesus." (KJV)

Good Morning Bobbi

Dwelling on our negative past seems to be a common trait among most people. It's often a difficult habit to break, but with God all things are possible.

God Bless You, Ron
