As soon as the angels had brought them out, one of them spoke. He said, “Run for your lives! Don’t look back! Don’t stop anywhere in the valley! Run to the mountains! If you don’t, you will be swept away!”
(Genesis 19:17 )
Leaving our past is sometimes easier said then done. It is only by the grace of God can we leave a place of comfort and enter into the unknown. A new career, a new country, a new relationship, or even a new lifestyle. Change, my friend is never easy, but for many reasons -we need it. Let us be like Lot and run for our lives! Don’t look back, but move forward into a new day, a new way of thinking, a new way of living. Move into a new season and don’t look back.
I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back. (Philippians 3:14 )
