Pressing On

Most things I've tried, I've been pretty good at. A good majority of those things I've even been a bit above average in. (I'm not talking about anything athletic of course.) But in my adult life, I've come across something that continually kicks me in the butt. Something I work at, think about, and try over and over. But I seem to mess up - all the time. It's at the point sometimes that I feel like I've failed and I should just drop out. I've never been a quitter though and so I never fully drop out.

I guess that's the one of the things I have going for me.

Philippians 3:12-14 I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back. (The Message)
