It’s Your Move
Life resembles the game of chess.
You make strategic moves. You advance your position.
Eventually, you checkmate your opponent and win the
If your life is a board game…then who is your opponent?
What are the obstacles in YOUR life that keep getting in
CHOICES are small moves that move us to victory.
Read on and think hard about the three words you are about
to read: Forgive! Forget! Go Forward!
Without trying to sound super spiritual, I strongly believe
there is a prophetic tone to these three words. They will

God spoke to Moses saying, “Tell the Children of Israel to go forward” (Ex. 14:15).

IT’S YOUR MOVE!
Forgive, Forget, Go Forward!
