Philippians 3:14 esv
When the Super Bowl began yesterday, I said to myself “Go Broncos!” A few hours later I found myself saying, “There’s always next year.” As much as the Broncos tried to hang in there, the Seahawks prevailed. But there is always next season. Next season is another chance to go back and win. Have you ever felt like that in life? Have you ever lost? You may wonder to yourself, If only I did this” or “If only I did that.” It’s easy to get caught up in our failure and in the past. But just remember, even in life, there’s always another chance. There’s always another season in life to succeed.
Do you have some major losses in your life? Don’t worry we all do. The key to success is not a perfect past, but in how you deal with your failures. Set your mind on the goal of knowing Christ. Set your mind on the goal of perfection. Saturate your mind in reaching Christian maturity. When you’re up and when you’re down keep straining towards your goal. You’re not doing it alone. If you are God’s child He is right there with you. Keep pressing.
