“But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt”.

Recognize this story? If not read Genesis 19! This verse in particular has been popping up in my mind the last while. Lot’s wife looked back when she knew she shouldn’t, and in doing so lost her life! It seemed like she just couldn’t let go.

This verse brought me to a revelation of sorts about my life, and I hope it does the same for you as well. How often do I look back and choose to not go forward?

If people hurt me with their comments do I let go, or do I choose to rethink each word they said and hold it against them?

When life doesn’t go the way I planned do I constantly look back, or do I choose to move forward? 

If circumstances beyond my control change the path I’m walking on will I choose to keep on trusting God? 

I’m sure Lot’s wife also thought that life didn’t go the way she had planned (after all they were leaving their  home).  I think that her story shows the grave danger of not wanting to let go!

I truly believe that we have to let go of our plans for our life, and trust God with it all ESPECIALLY when you are going through infertility.  After all how can we see God’s plan for our future if we are constantly looking back??
