While down in South Georgia this past Friday and Saturday, I ventured over to Thomasville via Boston. Georgia, that is.when I noticed partially-covered signs signifying the road was closed in ‘X’ number of feet. As I passed three such signs, I noticed the orange and white barricades staged beside the road. This all points to one thing.The old ‘one hump’ bridge over the railroad is going to be replaced.
So sad, but so needed. The old ‘one hump’ bridge is the original bridge over the railroad track from back in the day when the road (now GA 364) was US 84. It seems to be about 1.5 lanes wide with damaged side rails made of concrete vertical and horizontal posts. I cannot say why there seems to be some sort of legendary romance with this unsafe object, but truth be told, it will be sad to see it go.
It seems this is how folks treat salvation. They look forward to it, but for some unknown reason called “human nature” they want to hold on to the old. When a person turns to Jesus, they need to drop all and go!
This week, remind someone you see to let go of the old and embrace the new. That is the new life offered because of the Savior. So what if they lose some old nostalgic feeling or weight that is dragging them down? They will quickly forget all that once they are in His fold.
