Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
Did you know that you have a gift at your door every morning? The gift of a new day is to be treasured and used to bring glory and honor to the giver of the gift, the Lord God Almighty.
Each day brings challenges and trials that can overwhelm us and keep us from seeing the real possibilties available to us. Unfortunately, many of us carry the burdens of yesterday into our present, day after day. Jesus came to give us life that is free of the burden of sin and filled with hope for the opportunities of a new life in Him.
Enjoying the freshness of each new day is up to you . During the times when you can't understand what God is doing, you may need to remind yourself daily of your choice to accept God's grace and receive the gift of His forgiveness.
A whispered prayer is the guarantee of a fresh start. With prayer, the beauty of life will come into clear view.
As you experience the convicting and cleansing touch of the Spirit, you will mature spiritually and release the freshness of His life in yours.
So , what is your goal? What are you going to press on toward?
A great prize is waiting for you and that is in Christ Jesus. He is our rock!!! or strength.
May you read God's Word and be richly blessed as I have been this morning...
Have a Great day. Love Deb
