Moving On … June 13, 2013

(1,911)

Du QuoinJust because you find yourself in the position of being a traveling troubadour does not necessarily mean that you’re tickled about moving on.

If you have one ounce of human understanding, you have a tendency to attach to the people you meet, do some bonding and have a spot deep in your soul that wishes you could hang around longer. Obviously, that’s why most individuals settle into a nest, raise some birds and fly around the same batch of trees.

So every time I finish up a show with a new clump of friends, the realization that I must go onward and start over with those who insist that we begin “as strangers” is not only a bit intimidating but also stirs a little sadness in my soul–because I will be absent from those with whom I have just drawn near.

But the gospel was never meant to be placed within a tabernacle and revered around an altar. The message of truth and mercy is a living, breathing organism which finds its energy from renewing and saving the lost.

So there’s always a time for moving on.

When I finished up last night in Sunfield, I climbed up into my van and waved at the folks I treasured for forty-eight hours, stepped on the gas and traveled on. I thought to myself:

  • I have shared my music and heart to the best of my ability and to the completeness of my understanding at this point in my earth journey.
  • I kept it simple so the message can be remembered and cherished.
  • I laughed with those new friends to confirm the power of good cheer.
  • I shed a tear so that God could comfort us.
  • I tried not to be too long-winded, because many words dull the ears and confound the mind.
  • I stayed just long enough to be of benefit–and to learn.
  • And I left–so that the message can be honored instead of me occupying space and demanding notice.

Moving on. It is the miraculous mixture of trusting my talent, the power of the word …  and the souls left behind.

  1. It is all about finding a way to be valuables to the next person you meet. It is the definition of ministry, and you don’t even have to file to become a corporation, Yours, Jonathan

  2. WELL SAID!!! I hope all who read really get the message. You do not have to beg for money to feed the large Christian TV stations to collect billions. This was not CHRIST’S WAY. Thank you for doing what you do. GOD be with you.
