Things Remembered

Philippians 3:13-14 NKJV- Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended: but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Oftentimes we can be hard on ourselves for bad decisions that we've made in our past. If we're not careful we will allow our entire life to be defined by a few bad choices that we made during a weak season in our life. Maybe it was a bad breakup or a financial investment gone wrong, or maybe something as simple as a lapse in judgment on our part. Those choices can have a profound affect on us and how we conduct our everyday life. We view some mistakes as being more difficult to bounce back from than others. Sometimes we're embarrassed and think how could this have happened to me and then there are those other times when we worry about what others will think of us because of our misstep. In those times I am comforted by verses 13 and 14 in Philippians Chapter 3 because they say so eloquently say the words that I often have trouble reciting. The word makes it clear that we will make mistakes, but it's how we bounce back after the mistake that will determine our outcome. In those two versus I found three declarations to help get me through the tough times: I don't understand, I will not forget and I will press on. File those missteps in your "things remembered file" and press on toward the victory in Jesus Christ. He doesn't want us to get stuck in our past, we've been purposed for greater things ahead. Peace and Wellness, SuGa
