Forward-Focused

A contemplative woman gazes out the window

Forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.—Philippians 3:13-14 (ESV)

Dr. Norman Vincent Peale coined the phrase “victorious forgetfulness”—the act of forgetting about whatever barriers keep you from letting go of the past so that you can have a prosperous and beautiful future. Forget your mistakes, your feelings of insecurity and fear. Focus on victory.

Today's Prayer:

Our Heavenly Father, thank You for the great truth that if I believe in You, I will accept the great opportunities that await me tomorrow.
