I keep forgetting not to compare myself to others.
I keep forgetting that no woman does everything.
I keep forgetting that though someone else does this and this and this, she also doesn’t do that or that or that.
I keep forgetting that I only need to stick to my priorities and I don’t have to keep up with anyone.
I keep forgetting that no one else can fill the place where God placed me.
I keep forgetting that every single one of us has a very special calling.
I keep forgetting that I’m not the only one who feels overwhelmed sometimes.
I keep forgetting that the only security of any kind that benefits me, comes only from God.
I keep forgetting to not sweat the small, daily irritations.
I keep forgetting that I want to seek contentedness.
I keep forgetting to smile more.
I keep forgetting to pray without ceasing.
I keep forgetting to rejoice evermore.
I keep forgetting that though we strive for perfection, we won’t be complete in it until we dwell with Him.
I keep forgetting that my God deeply desires a relationship with me, not a performance from me.
I keep forgetting how blessed I am.
I keep forgetting to remember to hug His promises tightly and to forget the right things. To forget the failures and sins behind me. The ones Satan likes to remind me of over and over again.
I’m choosing to remember to forget what He has forgiven.
I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.
Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: 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 heavenward in Christ Jesus.
Join me in forgetting what is behind?
