When I was a small child, my grandmother used to read me Bible stories—and not from books with large letters and colorful cartoons. I'm talking about King James Version stories from her tear-stained, oversized, white leather-bound Bible.
As I was so young, the only passage I clearly remember was about Lot's wife. Considering Jesus instructed us in Luke 17:32 to "remember Lot's wife" in the end times, I am grateful for the early impression on my soul. Indeed, Lot's wife turning into a pillar of salt as she looked back on Sodom and Gomorrah engulfed in flames has burned in my mind for decades now.
The Holy Spirit reminds me of this verse at key times when I need to burn the bridges to my past or risk paralyzing my soul with thoughts and memories of things from which the Lord has clearly called me out. There's a saying in the world that urges, "Don't burn your bridges." But sometimes we need to burn them with a passion to follow God into a new thing unhindered.
