"Forward" 2014

That's my word for 2014...forward.

forward: Adj
: near or belonging to the front part of something; moving or directed ahead or tward the front; moving toward the future or toward a more advanced state or condition

Look forward, press forward, run forward, lean forward, push forward, fall forward, step forward, reach forward, move forward...the only way, forward.
 Look ahead, look for what's just around the corner, just around the next bend, just around the curve in the road.  Tomorrow everything and anything could change.
Stay the course.
This is not a new year's resolution, this is prayerful a life change.
Philippians 3:12-14

New International Version (NIV)
12 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. 13 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 toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prizefor which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

The wait is worth it!

1 Peter 1:6-9

New International Version (NIV)
In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

Encourage One Another, continuing the journey on fresh paths.
Blessings and love to you, oxox, happy trails in the new year.
