Scripture of The Day

I don’t depend on my own strength to accomplish this, however I do have one compelling focus;  I forget all of the past as I fasten my heart to the future instead. I run straight for the divine invitation of reaching the heavenly goal and gaining the victory-prize through the anointing of Jesus.
(Philippians 3:13 & 14) The Passion Bible



As I continue through 2024 I am so aware that I do not have it all together! Because Ed had the gifts I do not have and he handled the things I never had to think about. I have concluded that I need help.

I know some Christians who would never admit that. Some pretend to have it all together. They may even put on a good show, but here is the deal, I need Jesus more now than I ever have. I need my friends and family more now than I ever have. I need the Body of Christ more now than I ever have.

As I study Paul, I find out that I relate to him.  One thing is that he did not let his past dictate his future. He kept moving forward. We can’t get stuck in the past. We have to move forward.

I relate to Paul when he states in Romans 7:19 I try to do good, but I still mess up and do wrong. {Cheryl’s paraphrase) That is when the Holy Spirit grabs my heart and says, “hold up! let’s repent and have a do over.” That is when one of my friends says, ” Ok, let’s pray, you are not in the right spirit.”

I want to encourage you that none of us have it all together. We are all going to have hard times. However, we have all the resources we need to do what we are called to do. We can lay it all down at the feet of Jesus and grab on to the hem of His garment and He will love and lead and teach and grow us. He will complete what He has started in us. It is not about being perfect or having it all together. It is about a relationship with the one who knows you best and loves you most.
