Letting Things Go In Order To Move Forward

There are times when, we have to give up something in order to move forward. I faced that this past week. I’m having to let go of some things in order to move forward with something else. It’s been a little tough because it’s something I enjoy but, to get where I want to be, I’m having to turn loose. I can’t do both so I’m having to let go.
You may be facing the same thing. Maybe there is something you need to do… something you want to do… but there are some other things preventing you from doing them. In order to do what you want, you are going to have to give up something. You can’t do them both and you are struggling with that. So, you have to make a decision and, it isn’t easy but, it has to be done. Do you want to hang on to what you have or move forward?
Sometimes, moving forward is a little scary. Moving forward means moving into the unknown. Although you have tried to think of everything you might face, you can’t think of everything. There will be some unexpected things.
Some times, you may have friends that are holding you back. I’m not suggesting that we should get away from our friends but, you may have distance yourself some. Charlie “Tremendous” Jones once said, “Five years from now you will be the same as you are now except for the books you read and the people you meet.”
The apostle Paul said, “forgetting what lies behind.. I press on to what lies ahead” (Phil. 3:13).  Sometimes, it’s not easy to press on. But, if you want what God has for you, you have to do it.
