Well it is the start of a New Year
Moving forward is a goal which means different things
Looking ahead and not behind as we never know what tomorrow brings
Marching on with courage and not fear.
Yesterday’s pain and sorrow can bring you down
Do not forget where you have been
However do not abandon your future and things unseen
Be still in faith as you lay your burdens down.
The foot of the cross can bring a powerful sense of peace
Where we never have to carry a burden alone
Making plans for the future and seeking counsel on the phone
Knowing time is short and life on earth by God is a lease.
The loved ones we lost in the past would want us to live
Mourn for a time, remember them and move on with life
To be happy and grow with our family and friends
To repair our souls and mend
Moving forward is to truly live.
So take care and grab hold of what life has for you
Share with others and build up your team
Living the impossible dream
So moving forward is a battle cry and to see our vision through.
