phil 3:12-21 & 4
13 ...but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead Phil 3:13
forgetting the past. whew. i struggle with this one. i struggle with remembering that god has already forgotten - that he has removed our transgressions from us as far away as the east is from the west. i struggle to remember to look ahead.
confession: i can be incredibly myopic. i can focus on exactly what is in front of me and ever better i can focus on what i have done. mainly, what i have done wrong. but slowly and surely i am getting better. i am looking forward. i am taking my thoughts captive to my saviour and asking him to fill my mind with his thoughts.
i *know* he has wiped clean my slate of sin, i am facing his glory with joyful expectation.
train my eyes on you alone jesus. help me, help me, help me. amen and amen and amen.
