“Don’t burn your bridges,” is a very common saying in my country. It is usually advice given by an older adult to a younger adult, or a person farther along in a journey… On the surface, that is pretty sound advice. But on a sleepless and lonely night, it couldn’t be more horrible.
Please do not overlook the small and beautiful beginnings God is trusting you with. If you are faithful over small, He will see that He can trust you with more. But if you are dishonest with little, He will see that you will be dishonest with much.
I wanted so desperately to do what God was telling me to do in His word because I really loved Him and wanted to please Him. It seemed like every time I tried to obey, I couldn’t. That is, until I stoped trying and just did.
