Living On The Sails Of Life

Encouragement Today

Today’s Encouragement is based on this quote,

I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.” – Jimmy Dean

When life gets hard and directions become unclear, it is easy to get trapped in the state of fear and confusion.

However, it is important to keep your focus in life clear. If you do, it will enable you to continue moving forward without getting stuck in the difficult situation you are in.

Lean on God for direction and clarity because He never intends for us to be confused, misguided, or alone. Remaining in His presence will allow Him to guide you in the direction He intends for you to take. If you do, you will be able to truly adjust your sails and reach your destination.

Today’s challenge is to examine the course of your life. Is it all you hoped it would be or are you struggling somewhere? If you are struggling, turn the burdens you are carrying over to God and allow Him to know your fears and concerns. Allow Him into your secret or private life so He is able to guide you to your final destination.

Lastly, remember God created the winds and because He did, He knows how to calm them. He knows how to redirect them just like He knows how to redirect you.

Hold your head up high and know this storm is only temporary. Just turn your sails and follow the wind direction. You will get to your destination.
