003. Start. Tuesday: When You’re Stuck

In this third episode, Joshua celebrates the national food of the day. Kerrie gets down to business, discussing what it means to start after being stuck.

Joshua celebrated the day with Oreo cookies—first produced in 1912 by the National Biscuit Company (Nabisco). He had no idea that Kerrie used to take the Oreo cookie apart, taking the frosted side for her lunch while her husband, Gregg, took the unfrosted side of the cookie. Kerrie explained their relationship: Gregg likes plain and simple; she likes the frosting.

Okay—here’s the basics:
START is the word for March.
Starting something new—refusing to be stuck in the old—is essential for living the best life. So today we are looking at how we do more than just talk about starting.

START is the word for March.
Starting something new—refusing to be stuck in the old—is essential for living the best life. So today we are looking at how we do more than just talk about starting. The thing is . . . it’s easy to get stuck in doing the same thing . . .  over and over.

It’s easy to justify it, reasoning why something won’t work rather than taking the time to evaluate and strategize how to move forward.

So.
When we live the with-God life we are an active participant. We’re not created to be passive but to walk through the door God opens to a bigger picture, giving us a new vision and perspective.

But.
It’s hard to leave the places we’re stuck—it’s what’s known and comfortable. This is not new. It’s been going on forever—clear back when—in the ancient day. There’s a book called Joshua . . . about a man named Joshua . . . that tells the story.

Joshua took over leadership from Moses—who was a big deal kind of leader. Moses had led the people out of slavery through the Red Sea to the edge of the land God had promised for them to not just live in but to possess. The thing is . . . the people spent forty years stuck on the edge . . . waiting to get started.

Because. They could not see the bigger picture.

They had sent 12 spies into the land to evaluate the situation. They saw those who inhabited the land as giants. 10 of the 12 spies urged the people to stay put—so they did and were eventually stuck.

Fear generated their perspective. So they were stuck for forty. stinkin’. years.

(Side note: The comment was made that Studio 365’s own Joshua has not even lived for forty years.)

So. The leader, Joshua, who by the way was one of the two spies who said let’s get started and enter in, ended up being trapped in the people’s limited view. Joshua was forty years older when he finally was able to start.

We impact our world by how we see.

Imagine the anticipation of FINALLY STARTNG with these words written in Joshua’s book:

Joshua instructed the leaders: “Go through the camp and tell the people, ‘Get your provisions ready. Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the LORD your God is giving you for your own.’ ” . . . Joshua 1:11

Are you ready? Here’s today’s life-list:

1. Delegate: He instructed leaders. (Give away whatever you can. It’s easy to think we need to it all and we burn out before we get started. )

2. Task: Get your provisions ready. (Evaluate what is needed to enter into your new project.)

3. Due date: three days. (Set a due date. Most people need a date to get it done—procrastination has an end)

4. What will occur: You will cross the Jordan River —success is promised with the word, “will.” (Know what you need to do and will do.)

5. Action: Enter in. (Take action.)
The life-learned message: The life-learned message: You will receive what God promised. (You receive the benefits after you start not before.)

Let’s start the day and take action. Talk to you tomorrow in Studio 365.
