Keep Movin’!

Doctors tell those with fibromyalgia to “keep movin'”.
Fitness instructors say the most important thing to stay fit is to just “keep movin'”.
Step trackers buzz an annoying alarm when you have sat too long and remind you to “keep movin'”.
Event workers yell to crowds of people entering the concert to “keep movin'”.

What if I don’t want to keep movin’?  What if I want to just sit and sulk a bit?  What if I am tired – both physically and mentally?  What if I think I just can’t live this life one more day?

Well Toby Mac’s latest song, Keep Walkin’ has a few answers for us.

Another heartbreak day
Feels like you’re miles away
Don’t even need no shade
When your sun don’t shine, shine

Too many passin’ dreams
Roll by like limousines
It’s hard to keep believin’
When they pass you by and by

I know your heart been broke again
I know your prayers ain’t been answered yet
I know you’re feeling like you got nothing left
Well, lift your head, it ain’t over yet, ain’t over yet so

Move, keep walkin’ soldier keep movin’ on
Move, keep walkin’ until the mornin’ comes
Move, keep walkin’ soldier keep movin’ on
And lift your head, it ain’t over yet, ain’t over yet

Echoin’ inside your head
Are the words that your sweet momma said
“Shoot for the moon, my dear”
So you took aim out of this atmosphere
Between high stakes and pump fakes
You’re feelin’ like you can’t buy a break
I can hold your hand, but I can’t turn your eyes to freedom

I know your heart been broke again
I know your prayers ain’t been answered yet
I know you’re feeling like you got nothing left
Well, lift your head, it ain’t over yet, ain’t over yet so

Move, keep walkin’ soldier keep movin’ on
Move, keep walkin’ until the mornin’ comes
Move, keep walkin’ soldier keep movin’ on
And lift your head, it ain’t over yet, ain’t over yet

Hold on, hold on Lord ain’t finished yet
Hold on, hold on He’ll get you through this
Hold on, hold on These are the promises
I never will forget I never will forget, so

I know your heart been broke again
I know your prayers ain’t been answered yet
But it ain’t over yet, it ain’t over yet

So get up and move, keep walkin’ soldier keep movin’ on
Move, keep walkin’ until the mornin’ comes
Move, keep walkin’ soldier keep movin’ on
And lift your head, it ain’t over yet, ain’t over yet

We all need to keep movin’ for the Lord even when we don’t want to or think we can’t.  He’s got a plan.  He’s not finished with us yet.  When we think we just can’t take one more step or we can’t force ourselves to get out of bed today or we can’t dare to face the hurt of what the day may hold, just know that God’s holding your hand and will get you through this.  Come on.  Let’s help each other…let’s keep movin’ one step at a time.
