“Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenwards in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:13). The past has a strong draw on us. We remember the failures. We remember how hard we tried and yet fell short. We think of the ways that didn’t work and wonder is there any possible way it will work. Paul says to forget the past failures. Look forward. You can live none of your life in the past again. It will only be lived in the now, with a view to the future. Press on to the prize. As we are talking about our diet efforts, we can forget all the diets we tried in the past and stick to the plan and reach for the prize, the goal. Success comes in the future until one day it is here. The weight loss journey is but a few steps and you arrive at your destination. Lay hold of your destiny by laying hold of God’s plan for you.
