12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
What a wonderful encouragement for those of us who have regrets or wish that we had made different decisions. Instead of dwelling on the past, we can chose to press on toward the goal and what is ahead. This brings great hope!
