Open Waters . . . Where Are You Headed?

If you have ever been out on the ocean (or even a huge lake, for that matter) on a boat, away from any shore line, and look out around you – what do you see?

W A T E R … W A T E R …

and . . . more W A T E R !

This can be quite a frightening experience, especially if it is your first time out, or you don’t feel very secure with your swimming abilities. I have always been an excellent swimmer, and life-guarded for many years, but honestly, my first experience with being surround with nothing at all but water, sky and clouds, it was a wee bit overwhelming even for me.

On the other hand, when you KNOW that you have an experienced captain, one who has been through these waters many times, you can rest in the stillness with full confidence that you WILL reach the shore once more.

As we travel through our life’s journey, step by step, there are times (spiritually) when we feel like we are floating out in deep waters, completely out of our element, wondering if we will ever reach the shoreline of ‘life as usual/normal’ again. We may feel like we are overwhelmed, lost, might drown in the vast emptiness that surrounds us . . . but . . . IF we KNOW our Captain – Jesus – and trust in Him completely, we have nothing whatsoever to be unsure or uncertain of!

There are times when storms will arise, tossing our vessels to and fro, but we KNOW WHO holds the helm of our ship (our lives) and we can rest assured that there is NO thing that can shipwreck us! What an amazing journey we are on! What a glorious view we can enjoy as long as we stay focused on our Captain!
