It’s time to move on!
Time to conquer that mountain.
Time for crossing that ocean.
Time for calming that sea.
It’s time to leave your past behind!
It’s time to loose those chains that bind.
But if you never seek you will never ever find
All you’ve been hoping for
Right through that next open door
But you’ve got to move on.
Moving forward with the Lord always means leaving something behind. Good or bad, we have to be willing to put the past in the Lord’s hands and keep moving forward with Him. We can thank Him for all that was good. Receive His healing for all that was painful. But we can’t move forward until we let go of where we’ve been. God is great and He is good. He has a future for each one of us. Jeremiah 29:11 assures us with these words. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Abba, thank You for loving us always, and always being at work for the best in our lives. Help us trust You with our memories and our tomorrows. Give us grace to be brave because You go before us, preparing the way. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
