Philippians 3:13 NASB "Brothers and sisters, I do not regard myself as having taken hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead,"For many of us, turning the calendar to the New Year, 2021, will be an exciting time. To leave 2020 behind for many of us, will be a blessing! Today's verse speaks to us about not having hold of it yet but forgetting what was behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead. As a young man and even still today, I look forward to the New Year, an opportunity to start fresh, start over, begin again. That doesn't necessarily mean that all our struggles are over but it can give us a renewed strength to continue on. One of the best decisions, resolutions we can make is to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, or for those of us who have, we can commit to growing closer to Him by reading His Word daily, praying without ceasing, spending time listening and following where the Spirit leads. It's an exciting time to see the what the future holds and where God will take us - may your new year be blessed more than you ever imagined! peace, tom
