What if I didn’t train enough?
What if the infection from two years ago suddenly returns?
What if people laugh at an old guy riding a handcycle around Florida?
At the beginning of a God-sized project, it’s easy to get a case of what-IF’S.
what-IF’S fall into some general categories:
- Future stuff that’s unlikely to happen—and usually doesn’t
- Stuff that already happened
- Made-up stuff about health
- Silly worries about the opinions of others (usually strangers)
So most of the what-IF’S direct attention to issues that don’t happen, already happened, or don’t matter. They’re wasted worry. We lose a good deal of sleep fussing about issues we cannot control or even influence.
what-IF we redirected all that energy toward genuine concerns on which we might actually have some impact?
You can try and fail because something went wrong.
Or you can not-try because you’re paralyzed by what-IF’S.
Only one option is a waste of God-given potential and denies God’s faithfulness.
I don’t want to allow my dream to be held hostage by stuff that happened yesterday and probably won’t happen tomorrow.
