An excuse is no place to rest. It is the mythical volcanic island, requiring a constant flow of sacrifices to keep from blowing up. And regardless of how it is fed eventually it explodes and disappears into the Sea of Reality leaving you to sink or swim. Swimming in Reality is tiring, but there is a better way to cope than setting out for another island – there is One who can walk upon the Sea and the invitation to embrace the impossibility of walking with Him. The path to glory is not island hopping; it is the path across nothing with no excuses. If you are tired of feeding the volcano or backstroking against the swells why not give the impossible a try?
