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.

  1. Thank You Father for giving us the strength and insight to move forward, even when we feel like curling up and going into hiding. Help us to always be cognizant of the fact that no matter what we are faced with or what difficulties come our way, we can be comforted and confident in You! Our forward movement (progression) is a testament that life indeed, goes on!

  6. Oh goodness thank you dear sister for this encouraging word from the Lord today. It was like the Lord sent it for me. Just had such a heartbreaking estrangement happen with my daughter who I love deeply. She isn’t walking with the Lord now and I know a lot of this is spiritual. I am so thankful to the Lord that He is my hiding place and my life for Him doesn’t stop. I don’t have to curl up in a ball of depression. I can trust my God that He is working behind the scenes for His good purpose. Yes it is a good day today. The birds are singing, the sun is shining and our God is in charge. Thank you Father. Lord please bless and care for all my DOTK sisters I pray.💜

Even when the tunnel is dark, as long as I got God by my side, I know there is light at the end, but I must continue to move forward. God bless me to know that just because I make mistakes, it is not the end of the world, ask for forgiveness, repent, and keep praising God. Don’t let one mistake make you turn around and go back and give up. Continue to press your way on through. I have come to far to turn around, can’t give up now.

  12. As I lay here unable to sleep I decided to pray and catch up on my reading from DOTK. Friday was a very difficult day for me and I had to deal with it while traveling from 11pm Thursday night until 6:45pm Friday night. The lady who I was grooming to become the supervisor in my agency and who I did a great deal for abruptly quit without notice leaving my agency without a leader in my absence and also left my clients who are special needs confused and hurt. I did not read this post on Friday BUT I’m SO GLAD I did tonight. Just knowing that God had a word for me waiting on Friday, when this happened, that’s still relevant today just makes me rejoice and honestly feel special. I feel so special that my DADDY cares SO MUCH about me and loves me enough to speak through you saying LIFE GOES ON, in other words don’t worry! I have been working on not letting unexpected things just ruin my day/week/month/year and this is proof that God sees my efforts. I will walk in faith knowing that EVERYTHING will work out in my favor because God is with me and life WILL go on! In Jesus Name Amen!
