No such thing as perfect conditions. 5.5.11 & 2.23.12

Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest. Just as you cannot understand the path of the wind or the mystery of a tiny baby growing in its mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the activity of God, who does all things. Plant your seed in the morning and keep busy all afternoon, for you don’t know if profit will come from one activity or another—or maybe both. -Ecclesiastes 11:4-6

Big dreams and plans in life have a way of never getting off the ground because of the human tendency to want all conditions to be perfect and all unknowns to be answered before beginning. Where does this come from? In reality, the desire for all things to align before beginning is rooted in laziness…the lazy man’s life being full of excuses. Like the proverb of the man refusing to go outside because there might be a lion in the street, these excuses are unrealistic and created to internally justify not putting forth effort. Every program of action is subject to the mysteries and activities of God, in which we’ll never be able to fully account for or understand, so accept them as a constant in life. Action. My sons, never make excuses for not making the most of your life, you are accountable to God for the process as He determines the results…daily be diligent and excellent in what you can control being free and content, rejoicing always in the divine sovereignty of God.
