“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.”
Philippians 3:13-14

Today, you can start fresh, regardless of the number, or seriousness, of your past mistakes. God forgives you, and following God, you must also now forgive yourself. This may be a new concept for you that God does not condemn you for your past mistakes. You are in this life for positive soul growth.

You are forgiven in God’s perfect love.

Often, we continue our past mistakes through our own memory of them, reliving them, repeating them, condemning ourselves by feeling guilty, and agonizing over our past. We are in this life for advancement, and all of us make mistakes at some time or another.

We feel sorry that we made the mistake in the first place, but we must not allow our past mistakes to block our future progress of our spiritual soul development.

I have known far too many in this life that stopped living and progressing because of some stumbling block that occurred many years before. It does not serve God to stop our living and progressing, but rather the reverse, to learn from our mistakes and strain forward toward the upward call of God, as demonstrated by Jesus Christ is God’s will.

Today, with God’s power you will have the strength to forget what lies behind and the physical and mental power to strain forward in life to the good that lies ahead. You will have a God-given strength to press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God.

Today is a day to be kind to yourself, for you are still “under construction.” Seeming mistakes can play a positive and important part in your process of learning and growing. You learn from mistakes, and you grow from mistakes.

You can begin, right now, to release any burden from the past and go forth with enthusiasm. With God’s help, you can turn what seemed like failure into success.

Let us learn what we can from the mistakes of the past and then bring only the good lessons learned into the present. Feelings of guilt can be left in the past where they belong, and we can give others the right to learn and to grow.

Our positive prayer for this day: “I release the past and go forward with enthusiasm to meet the good that God has prepared for me.”

There are times when we are inclined to think of ourselves as helpless in the face of circumstances, because of past mistakes. This is because we have accepted the belief that other persons have the power to deal unjustly with us. When we stop and think, we know that this is not true, for God’s law of love is the highest law.

When you put your life and all the circumstances of your life under God’s law, you are assured that no person or set of circumstances can keep your good from you. Even though appearances may seem against you, you have faith that, behind appearances, God is at work to bring good into your present life, this moment.

Whenever you feel that some person or organization is unfairly keeping your good from you, you refuse to accept this belief and affirm, in prayer, that God’s law of love is active in your life. This will open the way for you to live in the now moment and look forward to the future with positive enthusiasm and joy.



Lord, bless our day for our use and us in Thy service, and help us to remember the needs of others; for Christ sake.


I release the past and go forward with enthusiasm to meet the good that God has prepared for me.
