Phillipians 3:13-14 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. The Apostle Paul
“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.” —Edith Lovejoy Pierce
“Every man should be born again on the first day of January. Start with a fresh page. Take up one hole more in the buckle if necessary, or let down one, according to circumstances; but on the first of January let every man gird himself once more, with his face to the front, and take no interest in the things that were and are past.” —Henry Ward Beecher
The ‘Journey Across the Sky’ continues.” We have not yet reached our destination, nor have we yet achieved our objective. We have only yet to become what we can be, and we have yet to accomplish all that we can accomplish through Christ. I, like Paul, can state most assuredly that I have yet to apprehend but I shall forget the past with it’s successes and loses and strive toward even greater goals, aim even higher, and soar to even greater heights than thusly achieved. As we set our sights on things above rather than on things of this earth, then surely we can hope for the best that God has to offer all those who put Him first. Here’s to 2010 and the challenges it brings, and the rewards it contains, and the joys it offers. May your 2010 be blessed indeed!
Onward and upward in Christ! Soar on!
But those who are waiting for the Lord will have new strength; they will get wings like eagles: running, they will not be tired, and walking, they will have no weariness. Isaiah 40:31 (BBE)
