“But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”  ~Philippians 3:13b-14

There are always hard things in life.  Things to face, things to conquer, things to forget.  So this verse always helps me a lot in trying to forget, in helping me to face challenges.  Life is a race, and I’m so excited that I’m heading towards Jesus at the finish line.  He’s standing there behind the ribbon, waiting, loving, helping me along all the way.  And as I run (walk, limp, hop) towards that finish, I am so hopeful.  Because this world sees things as winning versus losing, but Jesus sees my heart.  🙂  Blessings, Lisa
