In the change of season, as the days lengthen and you have space to get out more, don’t be distracted into taking your foot off the pedal. Don’t move into cruise control. Don’t lose your focus. Press into this time. Press into what I am doing. Maintain the momentum. Keep your eyes fixed ahead. Do not turn to the right or the left. When distractions come, as they surely will, flick them off, for they are not worthy of your attention. Keep your eyes on the road ahead. This is not a time to freewheel but to maintain your speed and to maintain your awareness. Stay alert. Press into me. I am your prize. Push past the distractions. Push past the voices that would dissuade you. Push past the unwillingness of your flesh. Persevere. Ask me where to put your energy, your time and your focus. Ask me what I am doing right now. I will show you; I want you alongside me in it. Philippians 3:12-14 NIV 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 towards what is ahead, I press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenwards in Christ Jesus. Proverbs 4:26-27 NIV Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways. Do not turn to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil.
