Look To The Future

“No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: 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.” ~ Philippians 3:13-14 (NLT)

Paul’s writing to the Philippians telling them that he doesn’t focus on what he hasn’t achieved yet, but he focuses on the future. He doesn’t focus on his past failures, he focuses on what’s ahead of him. He moves forward with his eyes focused on the finish line.

We’ve all made mistakes. Failed. Messed up. And it sometimes becomes hard to move forward. We focus on what we don’t have. What we’ve failed at. What we can’t achieve. We spend so much time looking backward at our past that we lose sight of our future. Our goals. Our dreams. We allow our past to dictate our future. Take a moment and look forward. Look at your future. Yesterday may have been dark and rainy, but your tomorrow is bright and shiny.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Look To Your Future.
