Joining the optimists

but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race …Phil. 3:13b-14a

It’s impossible to have the energy to engage in the present or look forward to the future when the past is draining all the joy and hope out of the journey. Grace breaks the patterns of failure and loss in the past. Focusing on the present and future allows for a more optimistic and enthusiastic approach to living.

Lord, raise my expectations.
