Burning My….

3.  Burning my… “For Jesus’ disciples, burning the plows meant leaving their fishing nets and boats {Matthew 4:18-22}. What is it for you?” pg 49

I still have no clue what I’m going to burn or what I am currently burning, but I have asked God to show me or better yet, if he sees it please take it away. I don’t want anything to hold me back when God says ‘Let’s go.’ I can’t let anything hold me back. I won’t let anything hold me back. God means more to me than anything and to say ‘No.’ would be the epitome of the bottomless pit for me. I don’t want to wonder around feeling hopeless and looking helpless. I won’t let a chance like this pass me by. I don’t know of much that I have to burn but I know of a couple. I can’t let them get in the way of my greater life with God, that would be a bad move. I can’t live without my God. He is really too precious to me.

If you’re reading this… and it’s not enough to persuade you, I understand how hard it is to break the mold. I know, that’s what ‘Burning the Plow’ means. But in the end it will seem oh so much more better and worth it. Jesus wouldn’t have died for you if He doesn’t love you so much, better yet… He wouldn’t have chosen you if He didn’t believe you could  do it.

  1. Enjoyed this post Annie. Thanks for sharing. I am finding that I keep finding plows the more I study and delve into the Bible. I thought I was doing pretty good but keep finding I’m not. Seems I find another plow to burn or a net to throw down. Retired – burned that plow. Threw down some nets and now leading OBS with ladies and teaching special needs kids too – hoping to bless lives and lift them up to Jesus. Blessings young lady – and keep up the good posts.

    • No problem, it’s nice to know that you felt so much from it. I really had no idea how I was going to answer this question. I’ve chose it from the beginning of this week and I was finding it hard to answer it, so I was planing on changing itBut I told the devil- “I will not stop now!”

  3. Annie my friend, you wouldn’t be the first person who has no idea what their “plow” looks like! Keep trusting God and I know He will show you the greater things He has planned for your life. I somehow think when God says “let’s go”, you’ll follow! Gladly and loudly!
    Bless you
    Love

    • You’re most welcome. It actually started in highschool when I noticed one of my friends was soo on fire for God she had the air of faith that I never understood why no one else did. -Teenagers were so caught up into friends and other things- I am thankful that she and I became friends.
      Thanks for reading.
