Setting Fall Goals: Letting go of the past….embracing the future

 

I love Philippians 3:13-14 because when I read those verses I get inspired.

Pressing on toward the goal….

To win a prize…

Forgetting what is behind…

Straining toward what is ahead.

Forgetting what is behind. Why are we called to forget? Because we have been forgiven for our past sins. We have to believe, if we repented and asked forgiveness, Jesus has granted us the forgiveness we were needing. Let go of the guilt!!! If we don’t, we are holding onto baggage that will hurt our “race.” Jesus has forgiven us, have faith in that knowledge and freedom. As Jesus forgives us, so should we forgive ourselves. If we don’t we are only hurting ourselves and not being obedient to Christ.

 

Join me today at Roomag where I share on the importance of letting go of the past and embracing what God has for your future!

 

What are some of your goals for this coming fall?

Love God Greatly!

  1. Angela, this Scripture has meant the world to me, and helped with healing so much. My husband was delivered from a very long porn addiction (Thank you God!) and is fully committed to building a great marriage- it’s wonderful! Even though I knew it was done, and I forgave, it’s hard to get that out of my head. This is one of the main Scriptures I use to remind me that GOD has forgiven him (and me!) so I need to get on with our marriage. Also- think about what Paul was forgetting– maybe Stephen’s face as they stoned him? Our God can forgive ANY sin and use ANYONE who is willing to lay down his/her life!
    Thanks for a great post.

  2. Amen! Lots of time I believe I’m forgiven- to doubt that would be doubting God. But to get beyond the failure, pick ourselves up, and keep going requires FAITH. If we stay in the pigsty of worldly guilt after receiving God’s forgiveness, we might as well have stayed in the sin.

  3. We’re a bunch of volunteers and starting a brand new scheme in our community.
