Training: Celebrate Today

Barry Young —  August 15, 2012


Philippians 3:13b

But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,

One problem most people struggle with including me, is we keep focusing on the past.

It seems like we tend to remember our past failures and sins, which when we do this, cause us to forfeit enjoying the present.

However, it is just as dangerous to be overwhelming focused on your past successes, and then to rest on those laurels and miss out on the adventure that God has for you today.

So I want to encourage you, learn from the past but CELEBRATE TODAY AND LIVE TODAY TO ITS FULLEST.

Be blessed
