Life goes on!

“…I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.” Philippians 3:13

One night I went to sleep feeling very discouraged. When I woke up the next morning, the Lord led me to step outside for a talk with Him. I looked out at the sunrise, heard the chirping sound of the birds, and the wind blowing in the trees. Then God spoke to my heart, “Has the earth stopped?” I said, “No.” “Has the sun stopped shining?” I replied, “No.” Then the Lord said to me, “So it is with life. Life goes on. The world doesn’t come to an end, My daughter, just because someone disagrees with you. The world doesn’t come to an end just because someone abandons you or chooses to no longer support you. The world doesn’t stop just because you made a mistake. Life goes on.”

God wants to teach us how to move forward, and how to bounce back. You can’t remain stuck in yesterday. No matter what has happened in your life, know that everything is alright in Christ. If God has orchestrated His creation to continue to go on throughout the ages, He can help you continue to go on as well. He is most faithful. Your world hasn’t come to an end no matter what the devil is saying. Take a look outside my dear. The sun is still shining. The birds are still chirping. The wind is still blowing in the trees. So if that is the case, there is still hope for you. Continue to shine for His glory. Continue to move forward through Christ. Continue to show how faithful your God is.

Prayer: My Lord, thank you for encouraging my heart. Thank you for helping me see how life goes on. My world doesn’t come to an end just because of the situations I face. Keep teaching me Lord how to move forward from disappointment and how to walk in newness of life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  5. Amen and amen. We just have to let go of anything which is hindering our walk of peace and righteousness.It is not worth holding grudges against anybody or feeling sorry for ourselves just because things didn’t work out the way we hoped it would work out. Give it to the One Who knows everything and has the whole world in His hand. His plans for us is not to harm us but to give us a hope and a future. Trust Him.

My spirit was being delayed and now I am free to move on for what God has for me. So now I trust God to show me the way and move on my behalf, today. Thank you Lord for in Jesus name.
