“Don’t look back you’re not going that way”
I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward-to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.
I have discovered that whenever I am on the climbing machine in the gym and I start to look around me or behind me, I begin to lose momentum and I start thinking this way “I’m not doing enough, other people are doing more ……”. This is the danger of looking back or getting distracted or looking at other people’s lives.
The only way to keep looking on the journey is ahead. The only person to keep looking at for strength, inspiration and directions is Jesus. He is the One who started this journey in you, and He is the One who will walk with you all the way and also sustain you on the journey.
As you continue to strive for the goals and the dreams God has placed in your heart keep your eyes on Jesus and keep looking ahead. Whatever happened in the past is the past, it cannot go into your future.
Ask the Lord to give you the needed grace for today and to enable you to put the past where it belongs. Set off today lighter and focused looking ahead.
Stay strong in Christ
