No Turning Back!!!

"I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. 
But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward-to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back."
 Philippians 3:12-14 MSG

I read this verse of scripture in the The Message translation, and it just summed up how I feel.  I never want anybody to think that I "have this all together", or that I "have it made".  But....I am certainly well on my way, reaching out for my Jesus as He reaches out for me.  And, PLEASE NEVER get me wrong....because by no means am I an expert in anything (except, maybe making mistakes)....but I do have my eye on the goal.....and I'm definitely not turning back!!!!

Thank you, Jesus....praise Your Holy Name!!!

In HIS Most Precious Love...and with mine!!!

Blessings,


Deb

  1. Really. if we do turn back to our old life after living this one, there is no comparison. Life is much harder without a Saviour to lean on and share our burden. xxxxxxx

  2. Your post today made me think of the poem "Footprints." Our walk with Christ is full of stumbles and sometimes we just fall down, it's then that He carries us until we can walk on our own two feet again. We serve an Awesome God, His mercy endures forever!
