As I prepare to unveil the biggest thing I have done in my life, thus far (Big Reveal Coming Soon), I took some time to reflect on the events that helped get me to this point. I thought about the times I felt defeated and the times I felt as if I was on top of the world. Then, I remembered a word I received from the Lord on January 14, 2018: “Run and Don’t Look Back!”
It doesn’t matter if we start out slow, the key is once we start, to keep moving and don’t look back. Have you ever tried to run while you were looking behind you? Not only is it difficult, it’s dangerous! You could injure yourself; you risk getting off course; and you will undoubtedly work harder than if you just keep looking forward. Don’t allow yourself to get distracted by trying to compete with anyone else; run at your own pace. Keep your eyes on the prize!
Since we have such a huge crowd of men of faith watching us from the grandstands, let us strip off anything that slows us down or holds us back, and especially those sins that wrap themselves so tightly around our feet and trip us up; and let us run with patience the particular race that God has set before us. Keep your eyes on Jesus, our leader and instructor. He was willing to die a shameful death on the cross because of the joy he knew would be his afterwards; and now he sits in the place of honor by the throne of God (Hebrews 12:1-2 TLB).
To sum it up, here are some things to remember as you work towards realizing your goals:
~Once you start, don’t stop.
~Let go of regrets from your past.
~Don’t allow fear to control you, or dictate your actions.
~Keep moving forward, and don’t look back.
~Remember, not everyone is a cheerleader, some are spectators, others are naysayers; and some are being inspired by watching you.
So, That Settles It. Stay Tuned because I have a HUGE Announcement coming up within the next week! My prayer is that my sharing encourages you to step out in faith and do what God has called you to do. Run and Don’t Look Back!
Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:13-14 NKJV).
