Sometimes the journey seems short when you look at all Jesus has already done in you.
Sometimes the journey seems long when you see how far you still have to go.
Even Paul the apostle felt this way, so don’t be so hard on yourself when you do:
“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 towards what is ahead, I press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenwards in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 3:12-14 NIV
Keep going. Keep pursuing. Press on.
God has a hold of you for a reason you haven’t even begun to know yet.
That reason has nothing to do with who you think you are or who you think you are not but it has everything to do with who HE is.
Go after Jesus and let Him do the work He wants to do in you. He is working the past out of you so that you can embrace the future He has for you.
Don’t give up.
Hold onto God even as He is holding onto you.
What has God already done in you?
Has He given you a glimpse of the work He still wants to do? What does that look like?
How does knowing that God is holding onto to you give you strength to keep holding onto Him?
