This past Saturday night, I went to my church service. I was extremely determined not to miss this service because I had been struggling all day with second guessing myself and where I needed to be.
The sermon was focused on “An Enduring Love” paired with 2 Samuel 12:21-24
21 His advisers were amazed. “We don’t understand you,” they told him. “While the child was still living, you wept and refused to eat. But now that the child is dead, you have stopped your mourning and are eating again.”
22 David replied, “I fasted and wept while the child was alive, for I said, ‘Perhaps the LORD will be gracious to me and let the child live.’ 23 But why should I fast when he is dead? Can I bring him back again? I will go to him one day, but he cannot return to me.”
24Then David comforted Bathsheba, his wife, and slept with her. She became pregnant and gave birth to a son, and David named him Solomon. The LORD loved the child
Just seeing this passage gave me chills, if you know me than you know I’m obsessed with my birthday (12/21) so seeing 2 Samuel 12:21, I knew I was in the right place. The whole sermon was beautiful but right now I’m going to talk about the 2nd point made by my Pastor.
Point 2: Knowing When to Move On!
God had a purpose and a plan for you! When a door shut in your face, you have to know when to move on to get closer to the bigger and brighter blessing God has planned for you. If you go to a person that has hurt you, with good intentions, and you ask God for the strength to confront this person with your guilt and say your peace. It is 110% okay to move on if that person does not accept your testimony. That means move on from enemies, people that don’t see you in a good light, let go of them. Because they are not meant to be with you, when God sends you your new blessing. They can’t come with you, they will have to watch from afar as you move closer to God and prosper!
Remember everything will be okay. Refocus on you and your relationship with God and everything will fall into place. Be Blessed <3
