Burn the Ships




Change can be new and exciting. It can also be quite challenging. Overall, I find moving and change very difficult. I like a calm, structured, and familiar world. God knows that about me. During the months leading up to our departure from Hawaii, God led me to the Stephen Curtis Chapman song entitled “Burn the Ships.” I believe, in His mercy, God let me know ahead of time that this journey would not be easy. I have listened to this song a lot over the past year. It has served as one of my anchors to keep me steady and pressing forward despite the unexpected setbacks and disappointments.


Perhaps you find yourself in a season of change today, as well. Maybe life is hard and things haven’t gone as you had hoped or expected. I hope you will listen to this song on YouTube and be encouraged. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-X0m4rxHVw


Burn the Ships

Steven Curtis Chapman


In the spring of 1519 a Spanish fleet set sail Cortez told his sailors this mission must not fail On the eastern shore of Mexico they landed with great dreams But the hardships of the new world make them restless and weak

Quietly they whispered, "Let's sail back to the life we knew" But the one who led them there was saying


"Burn the ships we're here to stay There's no way we could go back Now that we've come this far by faith Burn the ships we've passed the point of no return Our life is here so let the ships burn and burn"


In the spring of new beginnings a searching heart set sail Looking for a new life and a love that would not fail On the shores of grace and mercy we landed with great joy But an enemy was waiting to steal, kill, and destroy

Quietly he whispers, "Go back to the life you know" But the one who led us here is saying


"Burn the ships we're here to stay There's no way we could go back Now that we've come this far by faith Burn the ships we've passed the point of no return Our life is here so let the ships burn and burn"


Nobody said it would be easy But the one who brought us here Is never gonna leave us alone


Never gonna leave, never gonna leave Never gonna leave, never gonna leave Never gonna leave


Burn the ships we're here to stay There's no way we could go back Now that we've come this far by faith Burn the ships we've passed the point of no return Our life is here so let the ships burn


Burn the ships we're here to stay There's no way we could go back Now that we've come this far by faith

Burn the ships we've passed the point of no return Our life is here so let the ships burn, so let the ships burn Let them burn, let the ships burn
