Getting to the Harbor you Long For
A long time ago I read on a small sailing boat sculpture, which had inscribed something like:" A man that walks with God always knows where he is going." It moved me, I thought it was a great gift. Even though I knew there was more to that phrase then what I was grasping. We all want to follow God and know we are headed on the right track. But sometimes the storm rages and the direction you thought you were going to seems to spin a 180 degrees. Or even though you are skilled you are still longing for the harbor you cant seem to find. I heard this and read this today and I thought of the sailing boat once again.
"Rising up to the sky, sinking down to the depths, their courage melting away in anguish, they reeled and staggered like drunken men, and all their skill was useless. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and He stilled the storm to a murmur, and the waves of the sea were hushed. They rejoiced when the waves grew quiet. Then He guided them to the harbor they longed for. Let them give thanks to the Lord for His faithful love." Psalm 107:26-31
