Straining Towards The Prize

One of the presenters on my retreat this weekend mentioned this statue in her talk.  It’s of St. Ignatius of Loyola, and it can be found in Guelph, Canada.

As I looked at the image, I couldn’t help but think of the words of St. Paul: “… forgetting what lies behind but straining forward to what lies ahead, I continue my pursuit toward the goal, the prize of God’s upward calling, in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:13-14).  Today, let’s not dwell on our past, but rather, with hopeful expectation, look forward to a brighter future.  What’s holding you back?

Have a blessed Monday!

I'm passionate about helping people realize that God wants to make something new of them and bring about a permanent transformation in their lives: body, mind, and spirit.
