Story Behind the Art
A wife at our church commissioned this for her husband when he finished his degree in coaching. This is one of his favorite verses and he was pleased to have it kept before his eyes as a constant reminding to press toward the high calling of God.
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
