How Are You Creating your Future?

Since I suffered my stroke on July 8, 2016, I have found myself being very anxious about the future. Abraham Lincoln says that “the best way to predict your future is to CREATE it.” I believe that our human nature leads us to live our lives looking in the rear view mirror. Through my life experiences, I know that my future is created by my daily thoughts and actions. Philippians 3:13-14 says “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.” My challenge for myself and for those reading this is to take your eyes off of the past and to focus on creating the future that God is creating for you!
