As we step into 2018, we are entering a new season of growth, influence, and impact. I believe God wants to take us further than we ever imagined. That’s why this is not the time to slow down or ease up, but to step up.
No matter what has happened in your past, choose to give it your all:
If you failed, have another go.
If you were hurt, bounce back.
If you were used, serve again.
If you were betrayed, trust again.
If you were disappointed, hope again.
Don't withhold your hope, prayers, love, faithfulness, or commitment! Let the words of Paul embolden you: “Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us” (Philippians 3:13-14). When your foundation is in Jesus, you don’t have to let your past dictate your future.
Choose to go further in output and effort. The Christian life is an upward journey, not a downward spiral. Yes, it may take you beyond what you know and are familiar with, but you’ll never become who you can be without a stretch!
So press on, mighty woman of God, and propel into your future!
