You’ve heard it said before, moving is an action! It’s impossible to move forward without putting your body into motion. We were not created to stand still. Atrophy would set in within a matter of days. Soreness, instability, and eventually the inability to move at all-AKA, paralysis. Any physician will tell you that movement is as critical to your body’s well-being as proper nutrition. The Great Physician created us with movement in mind! It is the essence of who we are, and who He demonstrated for us to be. Staying in one place only long enough to hear His Father call Him to the next place He must go. He desires nothing less from us. While our human nature pulls us in the opposite direction, causing us to desire comfort, control, and security in what we know, His heart’s desire for us is to MOVE into true security by being smack dab in the middle of His will. The “comfort zone” truly can become the “danger zone,” when we fail to hear His call and heed it!
Moving is never easy. The physical labor alone can almost kill you, or at least bring you to your whit’s end. Preserving through the last month with my kids has hit me smack dab in the middle of this realization. Not only did they open their hearts, minds, and spirits to hear God’s call, they MOVED through the difficult process of heeding His call and faced the physical, emotional, and spiritual journey that MOVING calls us to.
You can’t move onto the new without letting go of the old!
My children have demonstrated their faith, obedience and commitment to God’s call no matter how difficult the act of MOVING in His direction is. I could not be more proud!
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”
This is the passage my Pastor growing up, Pastor Lee Thoms, always spoke over our congregation every single Sunday as we MOVED out of Church to live our lives that week. It is my prayer for myself, and for everyone bold, strong, and courageous enough to continuing MOVING in the direction God is calling you!
