I thought this picture and its quote went quite well with my previous blog post; I almost used it then but the other one's mysteriousness was just so expressive!
I think this quote speaks powerfully for itself. But I'd like to write one thing that it specifically says to me.
I'm a person who likes to stay safe in a harbor ... I'm not a risk-taker or an adventurer. I like everything, "down to the weather," to be charted out beforehand. But the best things that have happened to me in life have come about because I took a step of faith toward something I was uncomfortable with, but obviously made for, on some path whose end was dark, but where I was supposed to go. The Lord wants His people to serve Him in any way He designates, and like Yeshua (Jesus) says, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it, and whoever loses his life for My sake shall find it." (Matthew 16:24-25) Yeshua certainly sailed into tumultuous seas; why should we do any less when it comes to our callings?
What do you think of this quote? Do you find any special application to your life?
