One of my favorite verse of scripture is Philippians 3: 13. I constantly remind myself, I am not what I used to be, I'm not my past, and I'm pressing forward.
Let me encourage you today. Read the scripture, sit still, and think back to where you were and where you are now. You may not be where you want to be, but you are definitely not where you used to be either.
Leave the past in the past, press your way forward.
13 No, dear brothers and sisters, I 'm still not all I should be, but I am focusing all my energies on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, (NLT)
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
