Isaiah 43:18, "Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old."
We have officially made it through the first month of the New Year and the standard has been set on how we will conduct ourselves in 2013. If we focus on what's BEHIND, we'll never get AHEAD. No matter what you have endured in January, I encourage you to count it all joy! There is still an opportunity for all things to work together for your good! As we go forth in the month of February, let's be mindful of celebrating the rich heritage and history of African-Americans in the United States and abroad. Every moment is an opportunity for us all to blessed and be a blessing and every second is a chance to become "The First." We all are assigned a position that only we can fulfill and when we start walking in our purpose, we can become purposeful. As we press through another month, I encourage to not consider the things of old and concentrate on the new and the places God is taking you!
