Your Move

Hi David here.  Keen for a game of chess? 

Chess is a game of strategy and careful planning. Each move has a consequence and meaning in how the game will develop and what the overall outcome will be.   Life can be like a game of chess. To some extent you can predict what will happen in the future by what moves you will make.  

Have you ever played chess, stood up and walked around to see the game from the other side?  Sometimes it’s worth seeing life from other viewpoints and angles. Try the unknown, test things, learn, discover, like Geri (see the movie clip at the end of this post).

The other thing about life is that you are not the only one who is making the moves.  What moves has God made and what moves will he make. In life, we need to make room for God.  This may mean moving or waiting for you turn to move or be moved. Have you experienced this ? What happened? Here’s my thoughts on chess –  the game of life. 

Your Move

Does God move us
Like chess pieces
Across the board
In his game of life

Which piece are you
A king or his castle
A queen or her bishop
Or are you a single pawn

We are all unique
And move differently
But we work and play
On the same board

We may be black and white
Or different shades of grey
What’s your strategy
Perhaps it’s your move?
