“I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.” Philippians 3:14-15 MSG
I used to let one bad day or one hard lesson derail my whole week, or longer.
There is a freedom to coming to terms with the fact that I am not perfect, nor is God asking me to be.
My part is to keep my eyes fixed on Him, follow where He leads, and when I fall? Ask Him to pick me up & guide me back to the path He had for me.
My goal? To pursue God until we meet face to face.
And this pursuit is built up of all the days where I kept focused on Him, and the ones where He closely carried me through.
Even when all I want to do is to stop and give up when the storms try to hinder my movement, and rattle the placement of my feet.
I keep going because He is with me, not only cheering me on, but strengthening me each step of the path as He lights the way!!!
What a guide He is for us along the race!
So I will pursue You with every ounce of my being, Jesus.
Knowing You have pursued me first, and will be on the finish line with Your arms wide open to greet me when I finally step into Your embrace & eternity with You!
