And when the ship was caught and could not face the wind, we gave way to it and were driven along – Acts 27:15
A few years ago, I had the privilege of trying a new church. I had been in the church a long time ago when my sister and her husband tied the knot. But, I had never been in the church otherwise.
An old friend of mine I had gone to school with years ago gave the sermon and the message was so powerful I had taken some notes and started this blog post. It was years ago and this blog was originally shared on the Stay Boosted Blog. Since I have decided to let the blog at Stay Boosted go, I figured I would give you the 2.0 version of the blog post.
The verse I quoted above says so much if you think about it. The problem is we think about things literally too much. But, if we pay attention to the meaning, it changes a lot!
The ship you’re sailing in, in your life, will hit storms but how do you handle it?
The storm this ship hit had taken control of the storm and they couldn’t go any further until they let go and let the ship drive herself.
When we go through the trials and tribulations of life, there are times when the storm takes us and beats our “ship” to pieces but if we have faith and believe that everything will be alright, we can let go and allow the ship to drive herself. It’s not easy to do but it helps when we realize all we can do is use the cards that we have in our hand.
What storms are you facing right now? I’ll tell you I’m going through some mental storms right now with the recent loss of a few friends and still missing my Dad. It has pulled me closer to those that I still have here with me. There is always positive with a negative. You just have to open your eyes and see it!
Let the baggage that is holding you back go and let the ship sail! You may not immediately be headed towards the destination you think you want to reach but you WILL reach the destination you need to!!!!
Just wanted to share a bit today as I work on some more content for you all today.
