13Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
I read this awesome verse today, and have been thinking about this topic all week. Pressing on, and Moving Forward. To Fix my eyes directly on Jesus. When our eyes are on him and everything is completely in his hands everything falls into place. He gives us wisdom, strength, when we completely press on from our past, towards our future with him as our goal, life is Good. We should use him and only him as our strength in our times of greatest needs. When everything is crashing around, he will hold it up. Just keep your focus on him. Sin and other junk can easily sneak into our vision but we need to focus completely on Jesus!! He will never leave us when everyone else does, and he will never fail you. Trust him and fix your eyes fully on him.
