I know DSW Shoes was making a play on words with their email advertisement yesterday. After all, we are in the month of MARCH and it's time to MARCH ON. Here are lines from their ad:
*****OK, IT’S TIME: TIME TO FINALLY REALIZE “I WILL” WALKS ALL OVER “I CAN’T.”
*****IT'S TIME: TO CONFRONT EACH NEW CHALLENGE, AND DECIDE WHETHER TO GIVE UP, GIVE IN, OR GIVE IT ALL YOU GOT.
*****WAKE UP. PUT ON YOUR SHOES……MARCH ON.
Their ad worked. Here I am passing it on because it said something. The fact is life happens, stuff happens and we can decide whether to give up, give in or give it all we've got.
The first photo here was of my grandson's Army platoon marching for their Ft. Benning, GA Ranger graduation ceremonies. Notice they were FORWARD marching NOT backward marching. Whether soldiers are at their home base moving from one post to another, or are on the battlefield….they are on assignment and they will not cease until their mission has been accomplished. Paul said in Philippians 3:13,14: “…..but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining FORWARD to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” MARCH ON.
What are the assignments that God has given you? What are you going to accomplish with YOU? Life is worth LIVING. We’re still here and we’re “on assignment” – let’s get our MARCH-ing orders – our MISSION is possible! So we, MARCH ON!
