Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14
As we approach the new year, there are 3 things I'm going to do.
Forget what lies behind.
My mistakes,my definition of special needs, my fears and failures, my shortcomings, my doubts that I can finish this race.
Next I'm going to reach forward to what lies ahead.
New beginnings, new opportunities, new lessons, better understanding, more clarity, healed relationships, more compassion, deeper insight, renewed strength - a finish line.
Then I'm going pick up the pace and press on- I'm going to run my race!
We are not alone in this race. He is with us - always.
