Good Morning my friend,
What are your thoughts as you look back over the past year? Was it a year of heartache and loss, tragedy and sorrow or setbacks? Or happiness and joy, success and achievement? Or something in between? Do you close the book on this year with regret or with relief?
No matter your answer, I hope you will pause and prayerfully ask yourself two important questions. First, how do you think God looks on this past year in your life? Did it bring you closer to Him? Did it expose any weaknesses or find you wandering from His way? Would He be disappointed in your responses to your challenges?
Second, what lessons will you take from this year into the next? What did God teach you? What did He try to teach you? What needs to change and how will it happen?
Don’t be bound by the past and its failures, but don’t forget its lessons either. Like Paul, forget the past and press on in obedience to Christ.
“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.” (Philippians 3:13-14)
MY CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU!!! Forget the past and press on obediently..
I pray that YOU have a WONDERFUL day. Blessings & much love…. D
Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!!!
