PEACE WITH MYSELF
One of the great struggles in Life is finding Peace with who you are.
Overcoming past mistakes and disappointments can be tough at times.
The Apostle Paul knew how difficult it was to get Past the Past, and he offers us some really good advice.
1Co 15:9 For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
1Co 15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
Everything begins with your personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
(A New Man)
Php 3:13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do,forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
Php 3:14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Stop looking at where you’ve been, and look at what you are becoming.
Notice that Paul’s “One Thing” had two parts.
First he had forget some things, then he had to reach for some things.
