I press on toward the goal.
I once heard someone say that if you woke up wanting to sing you’re a singer. I guess if I woke up and wanted to go for a jog, I’d be a jogger. Well, I wake up and want to write…so I guess that makes me a writer.
Writing is the way I process and express my thoughts. It’s one of the ways I talk to loved ones, encourage friends, pray or, at times, I’m just talking to my journal!
It’s in my blood you might say. But what if tomorrow I don’t agree with what I’ve said today? I’ve pondered this thought for the past few weeks. In fact, it stopped me writing. I became fearful of putting thoughts into words. But then it occurred to me that it’s ok. Life is a journey…it’s a journey of growing, learning, stumbling, and yes, making mistakes. I don’t want to be tomorrow what I am today. I want to be more and more like my Lord Jesus Christ and that means change. I want to be learning till the day I die. So, will I look back on things I write today and discover my views have changed? I hope so, because…
Forgetting what is behind me and straining toward what lies ahead I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me forward in Christ Jesus!
