“Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own.  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.”  (ESV)

Philippians 3:13-14

Paul knew his why and this enabled him to forget his past and all of his past failures, what if’s, past hurts, negative thinking people and circumstances he couldn’t change.

Instead he could press on toward his goals.


I declare I will take my eyes off of the circumstances and focus on my why.
