Have you ever seen how the ship cuts through the billows, leaving a white furrow behind her, and causing the sea to boil around her. Such is life, says Job, “like the swift ships.” It has a destination, it has a purpose. So too in our lives, we each have a purpose, and a destination that we choose. We can choose to steer our own ship and encounter situations that we cannot handle ourselves until He leads you in the parts of the ocean, where your ship is scraping rock bottom, and right before the hull of this ship begins to give way, that you recognize a life raft floating in the water. Some choose to stay in the ship and drown, most would take the free offer of getting saved.
For one day our ship will reach its end on this journey that we are embarked on. Whether we choose to drown in the deep abyss of total darkness or float on the raft.
So who is your captain and where is your eternal destination? Will you take the life raft?
