Would you let your boat float in the open seas without trying to keep it on course? Would you let it head straight into the pathway of a moving tanker? If it was about to run aground or crash into the rocks, would you change course. Of course you would! You would steer your boat away from danger and into calmer, safer seas. You would guide it, skillfully and carefully, onto the safest and most enjoyable route to your destination. You have tens of thousands of thoughts running through your mind throughout your day. You can allow them to randomly toss you to and fro and crash against the rocks, or you can control your thoughts and set a course toward your goal.
You don’t need to make a sharp turn; just gently place your oar in the water and slowly adjust your course. Gradually nudge your thoughts back to a positive, godly outlook, one that encourages you and inspires you. Let hope come. What is the best thing that could happen to you? Begin to think about that and be thankful. Everything that comes your way can work for your good. Put a smile on your face and sail on. You are not alone!
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
