Burn the ships that brought us to this new land. We are here to stay, never going back. Torch the lifeboats as well. There can be no way left for us to return to the old. Let’s rejoice and praise God as the light from the burning ships flickers in the early dusk.
Burn all the bridges to our past. Burn those bridges that lead back to death and insignificance. There’s nothing left for us on the other side. Burn the bridges so that there’s no way for us to go back to mediocrity. Burn the bridges that entice us with false memories of a life past.
The worst days of recovery are so much better than the best days of our past. We now see that what we once fought so hard to hold onto is worthless. Our lives before were rubbish compared to the life in Christ we now enjoy. We have destroyed any way back to our old lives. The inferior is replaced by the miraculous, and now we dance in the flickering light of ships and bridges burning.
