MARCH 2016 - NO TURNING BACK


MARCH 2016 - NO TURNING BACK

The plan had been in motion for nearly a year. Certain conditions had to be met in order to proceed – phase of the moon, the tides, the time of day, the weather. On the evening of June 4, a weather prediction and a decision by one individual put the plan into motion. Once the decision was made, there was no turning back. In the early morning of June 6, 1944, Operation Neptune (D-Day) was launched. A year later the Nazi regime had come to an end.

June 6 did not go as planned in many ways. Over 10,000 casualties. Over 4000 deaths. Not all the objectives were accomplished. But the sacrifices made that day – and in the days and months ahead – put an end to the Evil being perpetuated by the Nazis.

At one point in his ministry, things were going well for Jesus. His reputation was good. He was popular with the normal folk. He taught. He did a miracle here and there. He healed the sick. But there came a moment in his ministry where a decision had to be made, a decision where there was no turning back.

Despite the repercussions, Jesus knew what he had to do. The time had come for him to go to Jerusalem: “Today, tomorrow, and the next day I must be on my way, because it is impossible for a prophet to be killed away from Jerusalem.” He knew what would happen, but he went anyway. He knew what he would face – The Cross – and yet he went. Why? Because he knew what was at stake – your life, your soul. So he walked that path in faith trusting his Father would meet him on the other side of that Cross.

From time to time in our lives there are moments when we face that proverbial “fork in the road,” and a decision must be made. Just like Eisenhower. Just like Jesus. Sometimes that decision comes easy – we have a good idea what the consequences of the decision should be. At other times we do not know the outcome; our hope is for the best. But once we take that step in one direction, we cannot turn back; we must move forward.

But during those times remember – you are not alone. Jesus prayed for help, for courage, for guidance. My guess is that Eisenhower did some praying the night of June 5 (and the days following). God will not abandon you. Seek out God’s will. Follow his commandment. And know – in faith – that God will lead you through whatever life-decision you make. Most of all, remember this: the cross opens the way to resurrection and new life.
