Loss is not something I handle well. Recently, I lost a person. Not through death. They just disappeared from my life. Without a trace. At times like that, it’s easy to question God. At least I do. Interestingly, the message that kept coming my way during that frustrating time was, Don’t try to open a closed door. Just leave it alone. That was hard. I didn’t want to hear that. So, I argued with God, and questioned, and argued some more. Needless to say, the door did not re-open. And, I guess it never will. There was a verse that kept coming to my mind during that time as well. it is found in Isaiah, chapter 43 and is verse 18. It goes like this:
Do not call to mind the former things,
Or ponder things of the past. (NAS)

a more modern translation says it like this:
Forget about what’s happened;
don’t keep going over old history. (The Message)

If we’re honest, most of us would admit that we struggle to let go and move on. Perhaps it’s a grudge or a personal grievance that we feel quite justified in holding onto. Whatever the case, there’s one piece of advice we can all agree on that we need to not only hear, but adhere. It’s quite simple: KEEP MOVING. In the end, we’ll be glad we did.
Just my thoughts,
