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.
The past can’t be changed. What has happened has happened. But I can make choices today that will determine my future. And so can you.
I don’t know what pains, sorrows or sins you carry. But I know that God can turn it around and use it to give hope to someone. That’s what Jesus does.
By putting Him at the center of our lives, throwing off what hold us back, and by recognizing that the plans of God for our future are bigger than the pain and regret of our past, we are able to get up from wherever we are and move forward into the amazing future He has set before us.
