Life goes on

Life is filled with twists and turns just like a highway. Life is a journey, and on this journey we encounter some difficult circumstances, hurts, and pains. Sometimes these events can act as a red lights in our lives. They can put a stop to us moving on with life.

We have to remember that life goes on. Divorce, death, rejection, a failed test, and closed doors can deter us from taking the next steps in our journey, but we have to keep moving. This is exactly what God wants us to do, and gives us the grace to do.

In the days of Noah, people were living their lives outside of the will of God. Life was going on, but in the wrong direction. It seemed as if life was going on, but it really was not.

They were at a stop light, and God dealt with through a flood, and God wiped out life on the earth, except Noah, to assure us that life will go on. Sometimes God will wipe out everything in our lives so that we can really start to live for him.

This includes relationships, things, and other stuff we cling to that we think is giving us life, but it is really not. God sent Noah and us a rainbow, which testifies to this truth: no matter what happens in our lives, life goes on: “God said, ‘This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: I have set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.’” (Gen. 9:12-13) We have a choice either to move with it, or to remain stagnant, unhappy, and living in regret.

When we experience the brokenness of life, and everything seems like it has fallen apart, life still goes on. There is life after divorce. There is life after rejection. There is life after a failed test. The saying is true if one door closes, a window opens.

There is a life after death. There is still hope. There is still another level. There is still opportunities to fulfill destiny and purpose in this life. Life goes on. There are other parts of our lives that are greater than the loss, and there is another part of this life that we have yet to see that will bring resurrection in areas of our lives that we thought were dead.

God is good. Just because life does not go on in the way we expected to progress; it goes on according to God’s divine plan and will for our lives. God has given us the green light, and let us go forward. God loves us so much, he will not let anything in this life pass by us.

Life goes on.
