– Philippians 3:13 NLT
As we come to the conclusion of yet another year and we stand at the brink of a brand new one. I want to issue you one challenge regarding the word of God. Regardless of what transpired in your life in 2015 (positive or negative)… DON’T LOOK BACK! Of course it is important to learn lessons from this past year that will certainly serve to make you wiser as you prepare to enter a new one. But no matter what, it is time to move forward!
Who knows what life will bring in 2016? Maybe it will be a year for you to experience incredible success and unparalleled personal achievements (I certainly hope so) OR this may be a year of trial, tests, and tragedy? No one really knows for certain what will happen next year, right? We can only hope for the best.
So don’t get stuck where you are, continue to push yourself in advance toward the potential progress that awaits you in the future. You have a precious opportunity to set your sights on becoming better, if you focus on ONE THING… Leave where you are are, and move toward what is next!
May God go with you as you enter into a new year!
Peace and Blessings!
