Burning and Crossing Bridges

”I demolish my bridges behind me – then there is no choice but forward.” – F. Nansen

There are days when the past comes back to haunt me and I still choke back tears as memories come in flashes. Cuts and bruises not known to anyone but me are healing slowly, unhurriedly, for the past is just a year ago. God is gracious he gave us the gift of time. Time does not only heal wounds, time gives us redemption.

Today I hold a similar paper a gullible girl held a year ago. But unlike the past, I am now not under the bondage of employment, not a captive of the opportunistic.

I am now sponsored by a man I work for out of affection, a man who has the capacity to fire me but won’t, a man I could not resign from and yes, a man who can’t kidnap my passport (because I’m the one keeping passports and he doesn’t know where I hide them).

There is no sweeter bondage than love.

I have burnt one bridge and another lies ahead of me.

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end. They are new every morning, new every morning…

No matter how many bridges you have to cross, know that great is God’s faithfulness.
