No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. – Philippians 3:13-14 NLT
As I’ve entered into day 3 of my 5K training, more like day 2 but I’m sticking with the schedule, this verse reminds me that there is more beyond just the physical race that I’m preparing for. It’s easy for us to lose sight of how God is working in our lives, especially with how crazy our world is getting. I’m thankful for these reminders and the hope I have in knowing that this physical world I live in is not the end and I can move beyond my past looking forward to what God has in store for me.
