      HOW DO YOU WALK AWAY? Author Unknown

      How many people find that it is hard to walk away from the past?  Relationships, jobs, friends, family, church, etc.  There are times in life when walking away is the only option.

      That unequally yoked relationship.  You are moving in one direction and they are moving in another.  You want one thing out of life and they want another.  

      How do you turn and walk away?

      What about the job that stopped challenging you years ago?  Do you stay there because you are half way to retirement, or do you walk away and go do something that brings your joy back? 

      How do you walk away?

      What about those friendships that seem to keep going up and down?  One day you are friends and the next day you are not.  Do you stay in that friendship when it causes more hurt than happiness?  Is this one of those who will be removed?

      How do you walk away?

      What about the family member that continues to borrow all that you have?  Do you continue to lend them the money/car/time, or do you step back and allow God to be God? 

      How do you walk away from what you have done for so long?

      What about the church that you stopped growing in many years ago?  Do you stay there because that is the only church that you know, or do you move on to a new church where you will have spiritual growth? 

      How do you walk away?

      Walking away is not easy, staying is sometimes worse.

      When a situation no longer has grace, is it better to stay or leave?  There are times when God is saying to walk away and there are times when He is saying to stay, but unless you have a personal relationship, you have no idea what He is saying.

      God will allow us to stay in things as long as we would like.  It is up to us to listen when He says go.

      We should not get mad when things continue to go in the wrong direction, when God has given us His direction. 

      I have asked this question many days and always heard the Lord say "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."  That is the key, seek God for the answer.

      There are times when He will have a delay in His response.  There are times when you will miss God's answer.  There are times when you will stay regardless of His answer to you, but know that God is a God that always answers the prayers of the righteous.  He answers in His time, not ours.  Just wait for Him.

      So how do you walk away?  Ask God to order your steps and the walk becomes that much easier.  

      "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well."  Matthew 6:33NIV

      "I may never see you, hear you, meet you, or know you.  However, I pray for you each day."  Dr. Venetia Cooper McCombs - For One Life Ministries

      PRAYER OF SALVATION:  "Heavenly Father, I come before you a sinner.  I recognize that I have been in a state of rebellion, and I humbly ask for your forgiveness and accept your son Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior."  Amen.  Welcome to the family of God!  We encourage you now to find a local church where you can be baptized and grow in the knowledge of God through His Word, the Bible.  God Bless you from One Life Ministries!
