“Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,”
[Philippians 3:13 NKJV]
LETTING GO is LIBERATING!! FORGETTING those things which are BEHIND you… IT’S A NEW DAY FOR YOU!!
when GOD is ALL you HAVE, then ALL you have is ALL you NEED… **wait for it**
if you CONTINUALLY MEASURE the POTENTIAL of your FUTURE by the FAILURE(S) of your PAST, you WILL MISS OUT on GOD’S BEST for you! REMEMBER, DON’T focus on YOUR past, but instead, on JESUS’ past [hint: He DIED on the Cross so you could HAVE LIFE, and LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY]!!
having a renewed M.I.N.D. simply means that [M]y [I]ntellect [N]eeded [D]eliverance so that I could take on the MIND of CHRIST…
“The person WITHOUT the Spirit does NOT accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and can NOT understand them because they are discerned ONLY through the Spirit. The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is NOT subject to MERELY human judgments, for, ‘Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?’ BUT WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST.” 1 Corinthians 2:14-16
a NEW beginning REQUIRES an ENDING to the OLD [behaviors & habits]… don’t be AFRAID to GIVE UP [SURRENDER it & SUBMIT it to GOD] what’s FAMILIAR [COMFORTABLE, PLEASURABLE to your FLESH]… it could be FATAL [DEADLY] to your FUTURE!

God will sometimes allow you to TRIP, or even STUMBLE; however He won’t allow you to FALL… but just in case you do, He’ll ALWAYS be there to PICK YOU UP
I have learned that sometimes sorry ISN’T enough… sometimes you have CHANGE…
JESUS SACRIFICED HIS LIFE FOR YOU [that u may be FORGIVEN of ALL YOUR SINS & INIQUITIES]!! He DESERVES SOOOO MUCH MORE than JUST “I’M SORRY!!!”
GRACE is God doing FOR US what we could NEVER do for OURSELVES and what we will NEVER deserve…
“For it is by FREE GRACE (God’s UNMERITED FAVOR) that you are SAVED (DELIVERED FROM JUDGEMENT and made PARTAKERS OF CHRIST’S SALVATION) through [your] FAITH. And this [salvation] is NOT OF YOURSELVES [OF YOUR OWN DOING, it came NOT THROUGH YOUR OWN STRIVING], but it is the GIFT OF GOD; NOT because of works [NOT the fulfillment of the Law’s demands], lest any man should boast. [It is NOT the result of WHAT ANYONE CAN POSSIBLY DO, so no one can pride himself in it or take glory to himself.]” Ephesians 2:8-9
“For the LORD is our JUDGE, the LORD is our LAWGIVER, the LORD is our KING; it is HE who will SAVE us.” Isaiah 33:22
