Forgiveness is the key to moving forward towards the goal which is before us. The goal for me is the finishing line to the race that I am in. Sometimes I am so tired that I stumble and fall, at these times I need to keep focused on Jesus.
Falling does NOT make us FAILURES
It is only when Jesus gives us the strength to get back on our feet that we can reach the goal. It is his strength in us that gives us the hope to carry on, it is the hope to carry on that gives us the desire, it is the desire to become Christlike that helps us to be victorious.
I desire more than anything to be more than a conqueror, I desire with all my heart to become Christlike. It is his desire in me that helps me complete the race.
I choose not to look at myself as a failure but to see myself as complete in Jesus; that is to see myself as an overcomer.
What will you choose to see yourself as today?
