Embracing 2018

Thoughts • 8th Jan, 18

2018 is here!

What a wonderful opportunity God has given us at the beginning of this new year, to make a fresh start.

Paul reminds us in Phillipians 3:13 that it is always important not to let our past define us but rather, put it behind us so we can move forward. He writes: "...one thing I do, forgetting what is behind and straining to what is ahead..."

What are some of the things you want to forget about 2017? Maybe some failure, disappointments or hurts?

Letting those things go, enable us to embrace the "new" that God has for us. Paul talked about grabbing a hold of that "for which Christ grabbed a hold of me." That means God's purpose and plans for your life.

Let's do the same. Let's strain towards what God has for us. He wants to use us like never before...
