The move is on…..


There is an old pentecostal chorus that my late father loved.  Every time I hear the chorus, I can see him in my mind’s eye singing the chorus, eyes closed, shuffling his feet on the beat.  Yesterday we sang the chorus again.

The move is on my Lord the move is on
The move is on my Lord the move is on
I can hear the rustle in the mulberry tree
And I know I know I know the move is on
Move on brother, move on sister
This is the moving day
Move a little closer to the sound of glory
Move on brother move on!

With that in the back of your mind, focus on something else for a while.  Do you remember being taught table manners as a child?  Just when you thought you got something right, something else was wrong.  The list was never ending!  Elbows off the table.  Don’t talk with food in your mouth.  Feet off the chair.  Keep your napkin on your lap.  Knives and forks never point to the ceiling.  And so the list goes on.  Our parents spent years getting us mannered.

And so does God.  Just when I think I mastered something, He points out something else I need to work on.  Some things are easy, some things are hard.  Some things I can master in a day or a week, some take years.  And yes, as a human, I sometimes get tired – just like you.  But God gives us a gentle nudge and says:  Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9)

Allow me to motivate you today to keep on moving, keep on trying, keep on growing.  Keep on doing good.  Keep on striving towards holiness.  Move on brother!  Move on sister!  This is the moving day!
