Quote of the day for Tuesday, July 19, 2016
To reach the port of Heaven we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it. But we must sail, and not drift nor lie at anchor.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes
It will not happen to me – this blessed life that I desire and that I know has been promised to all God’s children.
It will not overtake me – the promise that I know is just there around the corner.
It will not be brought to me – the possibility that is mine to grasp and to grow up in.
I have to actively engage in the pursuit of my purpose. I have to daily invest in the work that moves me closer to where I know I am supposed to be. I have to consistently do what I know to do if I am going to be where I want to be.
It is up to me to sail into all of the possibilities that God has designed for my life.
Are you sailing with the wind or into the wind – or are you settled comfortable in the bay at anchor?
To break out into my impossible dreams I have to sail!
