Moving Forward

I am someone who need to reflect on past events, make sense of them, seek closures before I can move on in life. However many a time, seeking closure to past events take longer than necessary when I'm plagued by feelings of guilt and misgivings.

This morning I've a sudden revelation. I found myself asking me, "Hey, you're breathing this morning aren't you, you woke up this morning, you managed to wake up didn't you?" I nodded in agreement with myself that God has decided in His mercy, patience and wisdom that I'm worth a second chance, a third chance, and many many more chances to come. That God sees eternity in His perspectives, that He holds our lives in His hands. We are required to live simply by faith everyday of our lives no matter how many times we've fallen. His forgiveness nudges us forward as we learn to stand up again and again.

Moving forward, my greatest challenge is to learn to work quietly and humbly at my place of work, for God. This isn't easy at all, what, to be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger, trust God etc... but I really want to live as one who has been in fellowship with Christ ...

In navigating life's journey, try to stay calm in the boat with Jesus. :)

Hi Jane,

I believe each of us faces a similar challenge in this life; trusting God is key. I am reminded daily of how the Lord is patient with me and I'm so glad He is. I find that God teaches me in simple ways about relationships; often using those around me as a point of emphasis.

May you find continued growth in your learning.

Thanks MTJ, and may the Lord use you richly to encourage those around you as you share your insights.

Jane I was a serious analyzer. I had to have an answer for everything. I had to figure out all the ways things could go and the way I could respond. It would at times keep me from moving forward. I relied on my own understanding. I am learning to have wisdom instead. I pray read the bible and listen to the lessons of Godly teachers. God speaks in all that. I give the care of it over to God. I leave what is behind me behind. It's not easy to do at times. I really understand the stuggle...but He will give you peace. So you don't need full closure to move forward.

Thanks Analisa, I suppose many people are like this too huh? And I suppose it's impossible to get full closures to everything that has happened because we can't see or understand all that have happened. Hope you're keeping fine yourself. :)

No, it is not easy, but it is possible. I think we all share your experience in having to work at it.
