…Forgetting What Lies Behind….

I was on another “tweeting” spree, today ~ inspired post a conversation with a struggling friend, last night.  God graciously gave me the opportunity to be on the GIVING end of his grace in our talk, a reminder to me, but also a “lifting up” for my friend.

These were the fruit of much heartache; but today, our Father’s mercies are NEW, and I even had opportunity to see some of THAT in action, too.  🙂

Be blessed!

  • Rehearsing all the past bads that have led u 2this place only escalates ur emotions &crushes ur ability 2persevere thru today’s hardships.
  • When confrontd w/crushing memories of past bad decisions, wrestle 2submit 2God’s sovereign grace; he’s only putting THIS decision b4 u 2day.
  • Don’t allow ur spiritual enemy 2deceive u into thinking ur worse off now in this hardship than b4 Jesus delivered u. We always only hv 2day.
  • …and our Father’s MERCIES are new EVERY morning. If u cannot muster any other declaration, AT LEAST remind yourself of this truth!
  • It’s in the moments when u CAN’T see the finish line that u must make the MOST effort 2remind urself why ur running; &leave the past behind.
  • If u could see the end from the beginning, u’d be God. This is what it means 2live by faith; continuing 2run when all u have is His PROMISE.

Philippians 3:13-14

13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

About Grace2Grow

Leah holds a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy, and considers herself a forever-student at heart, especially of the Word of God. The last few years have included a 160+ lbs weightloss, and a complete re-working of her "inner man" as she has had to journey from merely what she "knew" to putting that into "ACTION" .. a transformation that so rocked her core, she believes God's calling in her life includes a sense of "urgency," as the body of Christ is fully - knowingly or unknowingly - entrenched in These Last Days, just as Jesus prophesied. She has worked in various forms of professional Customer Service for nearly 20 years, from Mortgages and Banking to Automotive Plastics, and values most the opportunity to mediate and problem-solve. Leah has served over the years in varying roles, from Women's Bible Study Leader to Choir Director to Worship Leading to teaching Sunday School to working faithfully in the Nursery. She loves being a Wife and Aunt and Sister and Daughter and Friend, and loves to read just about anything she can put her hands on. She is always re-learning putting feet and muscle to these things, but she has learned there is incalculable value in "working the plan," and "being faithful with LITTLE so as to be entrusted with MUCH." And she is trusting her beloved God and Savior for the "much" yet to come.
