Selah-Pause and Consider

Life Line-The Word and Blood of Jesus Christ, Do Not Let Go

A friend sent me an encouragement via email  that included this sentence.

"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow.' "

How often do we give up?  To only realize later, that just a little more effort would have achieved our goal.
Most of us have things that inspire us, an intentional nudge to reach for the prize.  Whether through words, actions, or monetary achievement we struggle to find, to look for  the courage to push past our personal limitations. 

Today I want to encourage you to push past your own perceived and real limitations.  To reach up and reach out.  To hang on, to take a stand.   

Philippians 3: 13-14
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but [this] one thing [I do], forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

This scripture grabbed and held my attention this morning and became my prayer for today.  The fragment
"forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth,"  caused me to have a Selah pause and consider.

There are so many positive things that are worth remembering in your life...yet there are probably as many that need to be forgotten.  Those things which are in the past...the things that are behind you.  Let it go.  Forgive and move on.
Hold on.  Hold on to that which is pure and lovely and of good report.  Think on these things. Selah


Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.
