As the year comes to a close, everyone is talking about how 2016 is going to be “their year”. Like 2015 wasn’t??? Did you suddenly vanish for the 353 days that have already expired in 2015? “Your year”” Every year is your year. Yes, there may have been some difficult moments. Yes, there may have been times you wish you could erase from your memory bank. But …. 2015 was definitely “your year”!
Those hurdles helped you see just how high you could jump. Those struggles helped you learn to never stop praying. Those tears taught you to appreciate the smiles. Those fights reminded you there was something worth fighting for. That loss taught you to never take tomorrow for granted. If everything had gone according to plan you would have never learned to make adjustments and ultimately never improved. So 2015 was “your year”. You’ve grown a lot and you have some more growing to do. BUT before this year ends, you MUST do this—PRESS!
HUH??? What are you talking about Tina? I think the message bible explains it best. Check this out… 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. vs 12-14
You MUST press. You must keep running towards the goal. You cannot turn back now. You’ve come too far! You’ve accomplished too much! You’ve learned too much! You’ve seen too much! Keep going. The only way to go through is to PRESS!
P – Pursue YOUR Dreams – not the dreams of others!
R – Resist Drama – It will look for you, turn your back and RUN!
E – NO more excuses! – Do it NOW! Tomorrow is not promised.
S – Set Boundaries – Did you know that “NO” is a full sentence?
S – Be Very Selective – If it don’t work for you, don’t do it!
Until Next Time,
