We’ve got your daily encouragement, written by Lindsey Strickler.
12 Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. 13 Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. 15 Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you. 16 Only let us hold true to what we have attained.
God, you’ve got me. There’s a lot of ways I’d like certain situations in my life to turn out, and I’ve shared those with you. Please help me accept the direction you take things in, and help me believe that your ways really are better than mine. In Jesus’ name, amen.
