Movin' on after movin' in Mondays

Moving through The Gate

Hello- chances are- if you are purposefully reading this post today- it is because you know that I regularly write about moving on Mondays.

Welcome- sisterhood of move-hers.

Even if you think that you are not on the move- better get up and start movin' - don't want to linger and stangnate! 

Jesus says in Matthew 7:13, “Enter by the narrow gate.”

Jesus goes on to describe the narrow gate as being small and one through which few pass. In verse 21 he explains, “Not everyone who says to Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but those who do the will of My Father.”

Are you going to be moving around today? I know you are. Some of you are actually in the midst of a move- cross country, to the mission field, a military deployment, maybe life is changing and along with the changes you simply are moving out of your comfort zone- or across the hall to a new office.

Wherever we move, let’s be diligent to move through the narrow gate, always remembering to ask God- “What is Your will for me today?”  When we walk through the narrow gate- we can't go wrong.

God’s will is that wherever we go, whatever we do, we move through His Son who said to his disciples:

“I am the gate for the sheep. Those who come in through me will be saved. They will come and go freely and will find good pastures.”

“I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” Jesus John 4:6

Come, walk through the Gate with me and together let’s

Some moves are harder than others, Van, as you well know. When He is our Comfort, then all "zones" are safe...but not always easy. We are on the verge of losing our house; my husband is talking divorce; and my daughter just left home...I would consider that a fairly narrow gate! But OH!! what He has promised us on the other side! In this I can rejoice. Look at my blog for further updates. www.cynthialottvogel.blogspot.com
