Ascend the Mountain
This one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind... I press toward the mark for the prize of high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3: 13-14)
We are all climbing the mountain to God's glory. However when we dwell on our sins, focus on our mistakes and wallow in past failures, we impede our journey. We get stuck where we are or even worse fall backwards to the base of the mountain. To achieve the summit we must forget all that lies behind us and continually move forward, learning from our failings, but not embracing them. God forgave and forgot should we do any less. Don't dwell among the rocks and crevices at the bottom of the mountain. Leave them behind and ascend to the summit where God will meet you. You are blessed.
