“One thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 3:13–14
See Jesus Doing A New Thing in Your Life!
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us!
Ralph Waldo Emerson
God’s Word says, “I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Phillippians 3:13-14
In the lyrics to ‘Touch the Sky’ Hillsong United paints a picture of …dazzling heights too vast to climb… so high to fall… where heaven’s love sweeps low… Your heart beating… Your soul breathing… You found your life when laid down… Your Upward falling… your Spirit soaring… you touch the sky… When your knees hit the ground! Life is like the lyrics painted in this song. When we hold on to small things, we have a small impact; but if we let go, God can give us something much larger. Do you need to bend low to find yourself lifted up! What treasure waits within Your scars? The gift of freedom gold can’t buy… You bought the world and sold your heart… You find the Most High God at your feet again… You surrender your love to Him and your soul will dance high on the Wings of Forever!

PrayerWorks: Sticky Note Found! I work at a doctors office and we received a KSWP sticky note in a home health order folder. It was very sweet and reminded us of Gods love.
