What makes people resist change? That's my big question. Coming from a person that has an internal desire to progress, it's so hard to understand people that stiff-arm positive change. My whole vision for life is based on moving forward and I find that many of the people that I love, would rather wave goodbye then to hop on the bandwagon.
As a person that pushes toward change, progression and the unknown, I'm forced to leave behind those that refuse to come. I encourage, ask, and tell my testimony but it seems to fall upon deaf ears. I write this because it breaks my heart. Everyone has their own journey to walk but when people take the path that leads them in the opposite direction, it's hard to watch.
I'm forced to make a decision. Do I stay here with you and forfeit my destiny, or do I keep moving? Oh my gosh, just the thought makes me tear up. I come to a crossroads... One that could alter my entire life.
At the end of the day I know that I must keep moving. The Bible says in Philippians 3:13-14 "Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
I must keep pressing on toward where God has called me. Nothing else makes sense and no one will be there to take the responsibility for me when I stand before Christ. I must do whatever it takes to shed the old woman and walk into the new life God has for me. I will do my best to take you with me but you must choose for yourself what you will do. The Bible says in Joshua 24:15 " But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods of your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whos land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.
I love you and I'm trying to take you with me, but you can stay here if you want to...
