Philippians 3: 12-14 MSG version states “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”.
I don’t believe we ever “arrive” in this place where we know it all and have it all together, especially in relationship with God, but I do believe we need to continue to strive to be like Jesus every single day in every single way. I don’t consider myself perfect, but Im saved and Im creating a space in me that doesn’t allow foolishness!
This week I challenge you not to settle for your old habits, ways, relationships. You are so much more than that. It breaks my heart when people don’t turn to God because they think its too hard. I hate to see fear stop people from reaching their goals. We have to take a stand for ourselves though and realize that is not “just the way you are” and you can be better.
I love you and I pray you have a blessed Sunday. Get your copy of God Set Me Up right NOW. And don’t forget to be great!
