“It must happen to us all … We pack up what we’ve learned so far and leave the familiar behind. No fun, that shearing separation, but somewhere within, we must dimly know that saying goodbye to safety brings the only security we’ll ever know. – Author: Richard Bach
Most of us are at a stage of life where small things no longer matter. Every lesson learned, encounters made, milestones reached, and life moves on. At times we hang on to attachments – people, things, and emotions that are no longer profitable, losing our connection with God. We find ourselves at a crossroads.
Do we keep the status quo or go? Your decision comes with consequences.
In John 4: 4-30, The woman at the well gives us insight. She lived in a time of racial, class, and gender divide. Every day, she would walk the same path and routine as she journeyed to the well with her waterpot. Does this sound familiar. Can you imagine carrying your weighted waterpot with minor issues? Jesus connected, confronted, and challenged her. She learned the truth about herself; his love and acceptance; responded to what He had expected and was forever changed.
You have carried your waterpot long enough. What people, things, and emotions do you need to let go of?
Proverbs 3:5- 6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your understanding; in all your ways submit to him.”
God reminds us to move in His will, order, and timing continually. Leave your waterpot behind!
