Moving! The word all by itself brings about many feelings. Whether it’s moving to a new state, a new job, or even a new home, the process of moving brings about a myriad of thoughts and emotions. With each of the aforementioned scenarios, they all lead to one thing; moving forward. Choosing to move forward in life is no different.
Sometimes, our life’s experiences can have such an impact on us that we find ourselves having to move forward regardless of whether we planned to or not. Maybe your spouse has made the decision to leave the marriage. Perhaps the time has come for you to leave that abusive (emotional, spiritual or physical) relationship. By chance you may find yourself in an “in-between place”, recognizing that you can’t just stay still. No matter the reason(s) for your having having to move forward, know that you CAN move forward!
Yes, when you find yourself in front of the path that can lead you forward it can be scary. It can even at times seem paralyzing. Sometimes you may not know whether or not to put your right foot or your left foot first. You may even be hesitant to walk because you can’t see where your foot will land or where the path before you will take you. In those times, realize that the important thing is not that you always know exactly where to place each foot, but rather that you be confident and know that you’re steps are ordered by the Lord. And because He orders your steps He will grace you with the ability to put one foot in front of the other, move forward and walk the journey set before you.
