THIS WEEKS PONDERING POINT
A PONDERING POINT IS A SHORT STORY OR QUOTE THAT HELPS YOU FOCUS ON A GREAT POINT TO PONDER THROUGH YOUR WEEK.....
Have you ever heard the term tacking?...It is a nautical term used by sailors to describe how a ship moves through and at times against the wind. I heard a sailor say that without the skill of tacking ships would never reach a plotted destination. It is because. sailors don't get on a boat and then wait for the wind to take them where ever it blows. They plot a course and then follow that course even against the natural flow of the wind..
Point to ponder.
I see a lot of similarities between the skill of tacking and how we each move through this life. Sometimes the desire to (go with the flow) Sets us off course. James 1-6 (he who doubts is like a wave tossed by the wind) Ephesians 4-14 (Then we will no longer be infants tossed back and forth by the waves) In both of these illustrations the word tossed is used. It describes instability, frustration, and to often exhaustion. I was told several years ago “That the easy road usually leads to a dead end‘. If you feel frustrated, exhausted and even overwhelmed by (just riding the waves of this life) to the next…The next, job, relationship, and emotional high. Then it’s time you learn the skill of tacking. Tacking takes planning, perseverance, and patience. 3 ps’ that aren’t always pleasant. So begin to plot your course today. And remember when you walk with the Lord he can still the waves……
Thanks for pondering….
