Power Thought

Don’t look back, don’t look around,  only look up!

I returned to the gym after a period of injury so my body was still repairing, I was not as agile and quick as I used to be. While I was on the step machine I looked to my left and to my right at the level of the workout of those around me and I began to suddenly feel discouraged. In that moment I heard the spirit of God say to me ‘ Don’t look back, don’t look around you but only keep your eye on Me’.  I immediately changed my focus. It is the same with our spiritual journey the quickest route to discouragement is to start to look at others on the way. But your Heavenly Father is reminding you today to narrow your focus, look at God, look at what He has done and what will do and just keep stepping.

The only way you get to any destination is to continue to put one foot in front of the other and keep going at whatever pace is comfortable for you.

That’s how I also work out now I only look ahead and upwards and I’m learning to do the same on my spiritual journey.

Words To Keep You Going

Psalm 121:1-2 MSG

I look up to the mountains; does my strength come from mountains? No, my strength comes from God, who made heaven, and earth, and mountains.

Hebrews 12:1-2
