Today I will press on to be who and what Christ desires me to be, shedding the baggage of the past and empowered by His grip on me. Perfection is not the goal, but the path.

Philippians 3:12-14
I do not mean that I am already as God wants me to be. I have not yet reached that goal, but I continue trying to reach it and to make it mine. Christ wants me to do that, which is the reason he made me his. Brothers and sisters, I know that I have not yet reached that goal, but there is one thing I always do. Forgetting the past and straining toward what is ahead, I keep trying to reach the goal and get the prize for which God called me through Christ to the life above.
New Century Version

Today I will follow the path to perfection to God’s altar.
