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.
-Apostle Paul reveals that he has not yet been perfected & does not look at his past but presses on in his mission by the guidance of Christ. When we are focused & don’t allow our minds to be diverted by things of the past; we grow in wisdom. Looking back at the difficult moments we have overcome, the troubles we have met & the drawbacks in our lives, we may loose hope & discouragement sets in. Thus, our lives halt from progress & stress levels rise giving way to diseases. We should always remember that Christ has given our lives meaning & should always seek His guidance in our purposes & goals. Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”( John 8:12).
Lord our Father, we thank You for the gift of life & this far we have come. We have gone through many challenges & difficult moments but You have shed Your light in us. Establish our thoughts & purposes that our lives may gain new meaning. Instil in us wisdom & hope that we may be propelled in Your grace. We thank You & praise You. Amen
