2010 must have had mixed things in store for everyone. For some it must have been horrible, for some it must have been great and for some it must have been a little bit of both. Well 2010 is gone and 2011 is here and no matter what the year turned out like, it time to leave all that behind and press forward with new hope and an opportunity for a fresh start.
Paul said “but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,” (Phil 3: 13) and how true that is. Forget everything that has happen to you in the past, keep it there and press forward. If you keep looking back and trying to run forward, you’ll keep bumping into things and falling down. Don’t keep looking over your shoulders, there are great things ahead of you in 2011, move forward and grab the best of what God has for you. Don’t let the devil get you down by reminding you of your past failures, of unachieved goals, of lost friendships and of dead dreams, press forward.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jer 29:11
God still has a good plan for you, so don’t be discouraged, press on. After all, His word said in Rom 8: 28 that “… we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” So approach everything you do this year with God- inspired optimism and achieve the best in 2011. Stay blessed.
