A well-known song by Israel Houghton talks about moving forward. Moving forward is important because it provides focused action, attention, and activity towards achieving a particular goal. Moving forward requires that we commit to placing importance on values rather than valuables, and to be producers of creative solutions versus consumers of ideas that perpetuate societal decadence. When we make the effort to move forward, we commit to taking the important step towards overcoming personal, cultural, and institutional obstacles that only serve as a wedge to divide us. When we decide to move forward, we are able to walk hand in hand, not being afraid of our differences, but embracing them.
Like overcomers, decide to move forward, learning from your failures; celebrating your victories, and ultimately, pursuing your dreams!
