SPRING FORTH NOW
Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:12-14 (NIV)
Often we will find ourselves in bondage to our past, our mistakes, and/or our shortcomings so much so that it prevents us from moving forward or even attempting to do so and thus giving up on our chances to transform our circumstances. If what we believe can and should be is to become reality, we must be willing to move forward, even with our “baggage,” expecting that the journey to our promise will unentangle us from that baggage. The key to our route of unentangling from the excess baggage we carry must be intentional, creating a conducive atmosphere, space in which we Inhale that which empowers and gives us courage to press forward. No matter where we are in life and what we are carrying, legitimate or not, we must continue to live, to Breathe: New Life, otherwise, we will become complacent and thus, stop maturing in the fullness of what can and should be for our lives. God desires to do the exceedingly, abundantly, more than we can ever ask or think and therefore, it requires endless energy and boundless strength to press forward and stay in the game of life at all times. Stop allowing where you are or where you come from or what has transpired or even present struggles to contain you, press forward through it all. Intentionally create an atmosphere, space filled with people, places, and things that empowers and encourages you and Inhale to Breathe: New Life, free flowing and of quality that keeps you pressing toward the higher calling at all times!
