Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus. Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet ; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (NASB)
Father I made bad choices in the past, i have regrets, failures and mistakes, but I don’t want to dwell on these things and cripple my Christian life, one thing I want to do this coming year is to forget the past and learn from my mistakes, it’s pretty hard though, but oftentimes forgetting is an act of faith. And so I lay down at your feet whatever hurts, pains, failures, and regrets I had. Help me to think of the things in the future rather than live in the past, there is so much unconquered territory, I pray that may you push back my horizon. I believe that the best is yet ahead. Help me to focus my eyes on You and on the goal. I want to live a focused life for your glory. Help me to keep my eyes on the finish, help me not to stop running and talk to anyone in the stands. When the enemy distracts me may I not jog, walk or stand still but run until I reach the finish line. Amen
