I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.
Opening myself up to the Holy Spirit, inviting him into my heart to help me clean house and replace my sinfulness with his goodness–a lifelong process. I’m not there yet, won’t get there in my lifetime, but I’m staying in the race–a cross country marathon toward the goal. Join me. Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message)
