“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before…”
-Philippians 3:13 (KJV)
Sometimes as we start a brand new year, thoughts of rehashing the past creep in….
Thoughts of “woulda…coulda…shoulda”….
The good… the bad… the ugly.
But God has a different perspective about it all.
Forget about it!
With this New Year, we can start a new beginning….. a do-over…. according to God’s plans, purposes, and pursuits for our life.
But you may be asking yourself…
“HOW??!! Where do I even start??!!”
Just like if you are lost driving on a road and you stop to ask for directions from someone nearby….just start with a simple prayer, and ask God for “directions” for your life.
Then do whatever He says to do. Go wherever He says to go.
This may involve a big step of faith.
But know this… God won’t mislead you astray. You can trust that it will all work out according to His plan.
Just as a new toddler who is learning to walk and reaches for you to catch him…..Reach forward and towards those things that God has planned for you.
God won’t let you fall.
