Don’t Let Past Failures Keep You From Reaching Ahead

But one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal of the upward call of God in Jesus Christ

Philippians 3:13-14 NKJV

For the past week I’ve been doing a “Show Up” challenge. During this challenge I push myself to be more intentional and disciplined spiritually, musically, and financially. All the while I’ve been meditating on this verse daily. By the end of the week I knew why I needed this verse engraved in my mind.

I needed this verse to build me up because I’m prone to do the opposite. I tend to remember my mess ups and then let fear and discouragement keep me from trying again.

But there is something special that happens when you meditate on the word of God. His word is alive and it can empower you if you let it. So if you’ve been letting the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game then get that good word in you. Meditate on it so much that you begin to believe the truth over the lie.

The truth is God did not give us the spirit of fear. The truth is on the other side of our fears and comfort zones are our biggest blessings and breakthroughs.

So today I’m encouraging you to do your own “Show Up” challenge. Push yourself to show up and be consistent with the things you know you need to do but you don’t always want to do. You can do it! We can do it!! 🙂
