Yesterday morning I woke up with a lot on my mind. I was questioning some things in my mind and asking God some questions. I was drawn into some foolishness and I knew I should not get caught up in it. It’s just something designed to distract me from destiny. But God gave me an answer in a way that only He could. I was going to detail more, but it’s not necessary. God answered.
As I was riding to church, I realized that my time at the church I am attending will soon come to an end since I’ve decided I’m going to relocate. Suddenly, I felt grief because I LOVE my church. I haven’t felt this at home at a church in years.
As we entered a time of worship, the praise and worship team began to sing a song that ministered right where I was. They were singing this song called “Moving Forward” and kept repeating the chorus that simply said: You make all things new Yes, You make all things new and I will follow You forward.
The Pastor then got up and asked us to take a step forward and said that when God tells you to move forward it means he has something better. Yet another confirmation that it’s time to move.
Right now, I’m focusing on God alone. I’m not going to vacillate or go back and forth or allow anything to deter me. My promise to God is that I will follow You Forward.
“Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the desert
and streams in the wasteland.” (NIV)
Don’t be afraid to keep moving on, For what was before, now has gone, God wants to accomplish so much more, But we need to move forward in the Lord. © By M.S. Lowndes, Based on Isaiah 43:18-19
Happy Memorial Day!
