What should our focus be in December?

So, What Should Be Our Focus This December?
The verse for the month is Philippians 3:13: "Brethren, I do not count myself as having apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead."
We must now shift out of the November focus of pursuing to recover our losses ("November's Grace: Pursue, Overtake, Recover All, and Spoil the Enemy!"). It would not be healthy to stay in a self-absorbed mode of considering our losses.
We thank Him for the many aspects of recovery we experienced, but now we must give Him any losses or loose ends that remain and "forget those things which are behind" and begin to reach forward "to those things which are ahead."
As we stay in the hopeful state that we gained in November, we can trust God with the results that have not yet changed and get our eyes off of ourselves. This is a month to keep our eyes first on Jesus as He is both the cause and the flood water itself that is coming in. We must begin preparing ourselves to respond to His arising around us and expect new options that we have not been considering.
In my previous dream on flooding, one phenomenon of it was that the streets were filled with rushing waters that carried many very large, upside-down, squirming pigs. The only thing we needed to watch out for was being swept out by these oversized pigs. There is an exposure of the "underbelly" of societal pigs [also known as those things that are UNCLEAN before the Lord] that has presently begun and will continue. This is a reality we must be prepared for, and we must make sure not to get knocked over by these exposures of that which has been hidden. Exposure is not the theme of this season, but it will be the accompanying phenomenon of the river of God rising in our midst.
Here I repeat the song I was singing in my previous dream: "A river will rise, a mountain will move, God's people will arise – and all will be new." Get ready, get ready, get ready.
