“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
– Philippians 3:14, The Bible – KJV
The new year is here! Week THREE! Some people are calling it Sweet 16, anticipating major changes – a time of “coming out” or coming of age – moving, for instance, to the next level spiritually.
I am simply praying for each of you – that God would grant you peace and favor throughout the year. You know, things that cash money can’t buy.
In order to live in this peace and favor, you must forget things that are behind – the good and the bad. The idea is to thank God for both, cast your cares/concerns on him and leave them there. Yes, you can build on the good; the challenge is to grow. We can’t get too comfortable where we are – especially if we are children of God. There is always good that can be done in this world.
Take one day at a time, striving toward your personal best.
This is a fresh start. Let’s take advantage of it.
Write down some things you want to do better or to start doing to improve yourself.
Spiritually, strive to become more and more like Jesus. Study God’s word so you can know his will in order to do his work! (…in my pastor’s voice.)
