Thank God for the gift of moving on; for the power of a new day! Maybe we will never be the same; the lost of a loved one, the traumatic emotions of an unexpected divorce; the cries of physical and mental abuse, the humiliation and violation of our own sexuality, the lost of a job, the rejection and discrimination just because. What of that embarrassing moment that we all hate as part of what formed our story, or that bad decision we made, or that shameful act we will fully committed? Should I keep going?
What about that good friend, that best friend that stabbed you in your back; he was the only one you trusted to stand for truth, but went on promoting a lie about you. Your reputation is now damaged and your heart, broken. It’s so painful to see the one you said “I do” to, the one you got accustomed to, the one whom with you share your own children, have an affair with somebody that: “Understand more, that love more and that listen more…” Never mind the years of building together, of sacrifices and rebuilding together; never mind the children, never mind…. But thank God for the gift of moving on; Thank God for the power of a new day!
“13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:13-14)
