Setup for a Comeback!

“But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 3:13-14 ESV

The New Year is a fresh opportunity to renew our commitment to leave the past behind and press on toward God’s call in our lives.

Perhaps past difficulties, either circumstantial or self-inflicted, have caused you to draw back in your pursuit of God.

We all know that how we respond to adversity determines our destiny. So press on and let God turn every past setback into a setup for a comeback!

  1. Love this photo Tom especially since we have no snow here!

  2. It can not be exeggerated. God turns our folly into blessings. When Satan cheats us, we fail .But our Father knows our aims, commitments, so He takes over and reverses the calamity into a blessing. He shows up when we are down and seek His Shelter. Our comeback Glorifies His strength., though He does that too and not ourself. God Is the God of second chance. He waits for us to cry and seek Him and give up on ourself. After a little victory, we tend to be on our own.
    He teaches us to be humble in and for His Presence.

  3. Thanks Timotheus! Good insights shared.

  4. Thanks Kay! Unfortunately our snow is melting here now too with several days of temps in 40s. Nothing like a fresh snowfall!
