Is Safe Good?
“A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.” - William Shedd
God has designed us to desire dreams that are full, wide, and deep. Is He calling you out into uncharted waters?
If we make a habit of docking ourselves in the shallow ends, barely scraping the bottom and drifting by the shoreline, we may miss the adventures of His love. Sure we’re a busy boat, bustling about working and exchanging goods…
…that’s where we’re comfortable most.
But how often do we step out and change our normal course? We wonder if it’s safe out there. A line comes to mind now by C.S. Lewis, “‘Course He isn’t safe. But He’s good.”
God outfits our ship with Faith, Hope, and Love.
And the truth is, He wants to bring us with Him.
If we batten down the hatches when Winter gets tough we may miss out on something intended for our good. We might feel lonely and chilly at times but in truth, it’s finally time to be refined and fully live!
We’re nearing the end of Summer now. Welcoming a new season is a good time to see new sights! God’s traveling mercies are new every morning, He’s already sailed your seas before you. Bringing back a grace fully sufficient, and a kind of love that’s different. And somehow He knows how to cast out…
Choose to cast out with me now … because we believe Him.
Pull up your anchor, weighed down by a heavy comfort zone. We can do this together.
Can you feel the breeze? It’s getting stronger! It’s blowing away the sticky barnacles of doubt, anxiety, and fear.
Some of this life water is calmer than glass, and some will be choppy and feel about to shatter. You’re never alone. He’s drawing you close to hear him whisper, “Take heart, I’ve overcome the world beloved child” …
We must take our eyes off self, look up and look out! Watch for the high seas to frame the big picture. He has good plans for you. His plan is to help you navigate and set your sails high and full!
