"9 times out of 10, FAILURE is resorting to Plan B when Plan A gets too risky, too costly, or too difficult... That's why most ppl are living their Plan B. They didn't BURN THE SHIPS. You see Plan A ppl don't have a Plan B it's either Plan A or bust. They'd rather crash & burn going after their God-given DREAMS than succeed doing something else! There are moments in life when we need to BURN THE SHIPS to our PAST. We do so by making a defining decision that'll eliminate the possibility of sailing back to the old us we left behind. So we BURN THOSE SHIPS named: Past Failures, Past Success, Bad Habits, Guilt, Regrets, & Our Old Way Of Life.
At some point in our lives, most of us stop living out of imagination & start living out of memory & that marks the day we stop living & start dying cause to be fully alive is to be fully present. It mandates leaving the PAST in the PAST. Which is why Paul says "Forgetting what is behind & straining toward what is ahead I PRESS ON toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." (Phil. 3:13-14)
We won't find God in the past. Why? cause Gods name is not I WAS. His Name is I AM. He is an EVER-PRESENT HELP the CURRENT & EXISTING HOPE. When we cling too tightly to what God did LAST we often miss what God wants to do NEXT. God is at work right here, right now & is always doing a new thing!! Way back in the day I'm talkin like BC Era they use to build altars because altars would mark the holy moments in the past, but the purpose of altars is to remind us of Gods faithfulness in the past so we have the faith to believe Him for the FUTURE. An MAN BELIEVE ME I know it's tuff trusting God & BURNIN OUR SHIPS (I'm talkin to myself just as much if not more than whoever is reading this) it's SO DIFFICULT cause we can't imagine any other way across the WATER. But if we have the COURAGE to burn the ships God will part the water & we will discover that we didn't need the SHIPS to get to where God wants us to go. God Himself will get US THERE & HE ALONE WILL GET THE GLORY."
So I Josiah Sims challenge myself an ask u to join me & lets be PLAN A people, people who spell faith R-I-S-K. People who go ALL IN. GIVE 100 in ALL WE DO for GOD who is absolutely ALL WE NEED. It's a EVERYDAY THING so forget your past Christ already paid for that & lets start today Hope You All Are Encouraged... Hope Exists, Agape Validates You.
