What a year!
Almost a year ago, my family suffered a great loss in the passing of my brother. My heart goes out to all those who are going through the process of grief even as we still go through. The thing about grief is that it can immobilize you. It may immobilize you totally or just in certain areas. For me, I didn’t have the desire to write which is why I haven’t posted on my beloved blog in almost a year. Although I didn’t write, I stayed close to family, friends, and most importantly, in God’s presence. Whether teaching my Sunday School class or having quiet time at home, I’ve been able to just commune with God and let Him heal my broken heart.
Then something clicked.
I can’t tell you exactly what it is or as ironic as it sounds, I can’t even put it into words but something clicked to where I put one foot in front of the other to:
Do - Produce - Create - and Move.
I posted something recently that said, “There are only two options: Make progress or make excuses”. It resonated with me and I didn’t want 2022 to be the same as other years. Even though everything isn’t exactly where I want it to be, I remembered a sermon that I heard from a visiting preacher and in it he said, “God specializes in moving targets”! So I figured I’d just get moving! I may not do everything right or have it all figured out but I figured I’d just move!
I want to encourage each of you to just move - trust God and move in faith! You may not know where you will land, but, have faith that God will be with you. God says in Psalms 37:23 (NLT), “The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives”. God is concerned about you, your life, your dreams, and your aspirations. So just move - God’s got you!
