Don't Look Back

Hello, My Darling Readers,

I can’t believe it’s been a week already; man does time fly!  And with each passing moment I realize more and more that in this life nothing is certain.  That is why God urges us to take one day at a time, because who with worrying can add a single inch to their stature or hair to their head, no one. 

This week I had a chance to go back to the life I thought I had or move forward towards the one that is unknown.  For several reasons, I chose the latter.  It is easy to go back to the “norm” to conform with what we thought we had.  The difficulties in life come when we move towards the mark knowing that the cost of going back is so much more damaging than anything else.  As I made my choice I thought of Lot’s wife in Genesis 19:26 where the bible says, “But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.”  She became a crystalline powder with soluble and insoluble properties; someone who would eventually harden or become vapor.  And I realize I didn’t want that for my life.

Nope!  That’s not for us, my Dear Readers!  Our motion in life is to keep moving towards the mark, towards our destiny, towards something bigger and better!  And when sad thoughts try to consume our minds and we feel the urge to just glance at what we thought we had…look at something better.  Paul tells us to think of better things, things that are “noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable” (Phil. 4:8).  So, as I made it through the week I thought of the noble acts that so many wonderful people have shown me throughout my life (JJ).  I thought of people I admire, pure people who love me unconditionally, I thought of “anything excellent or praiseworthy” and reminded myself who I serve and who holds me in the palm of His hand, and with tears inundating my eyes and thoughts racing inside my head, I moved forward.

My Dear Readers, I write this, because each of us were born with a God given purpose and I pray that as you walk this journey you remember to ask God, “what is my purpose”, and you move towards that mark without looking back!  Don’t look back!  This journey will take you to many places, enjoy the places and move forward always seeking something bigger, better for your life and those you love. No regrets, just joy.

Until Next Week, know that you will be on my mind!
