Being "Full of Forget"

The Living Word encourages us to "forget the past and look forward to what lies ahead."
                                                 Philippians 3:13-14

Interesting.  It doesn't say, "Forget the bad things and remember the good things."

The Living Word says, "FORGET the PAST. PERIOD. The GOOD as well as the BAD.
Now, that's something, isn't it?
How come?
Well, remember that the Living Word also says to "LOOK FORWARD to what lies ahead!"
You see, we're pulled to what we're focusing on.
IF we're focusing on past BAD things, we'll stay in a vicious, self-hating circle.
IF we're focusing on past GOOD things, we may be tempted to 'stay there', to think more of ourselves than we ought.

Jesus knows that about us.

He is FREEING US FROM OURSELVES when we're encouraged to be "FULL OF FORGET" and "FULL OF LOOKING FORWARD to what lies ahead!"

Looking forward gives us energy, passion, hope, perspective, focus!

Join me, today, will you, in BEING FULL OF FORGET and FULL OF FOCUS on what lies ahead!!

Forgetful,
