Wind In Your Sails
“…Every Time It Rains, It Rains Pennies From Heaven. Don’t You Know Each Cloud Contains Pennies From Heaven? You’ll Find Your Fortune Falling All Over The Town. Just Be Sure That Your Umbrella Is Upside Down…” –Frank Sinatra
The Trim of the Sail, not the direction of the Breeze, that sets the destination of the Craft!
In life it is not what happens to us, it is what we do with what happens to us that determines our fate!
We live in a world where we face headwinds, and lately, they seem to be going in the wrong direction.
In the world of sailing, we adjust our sails and “tack” not taking the wind head-on but working somewhat diagonally and zig-zagging our way into the wind to ultimately reach our destination!
Why is it most people seem to “expect” a constant tailwind when in reality that can only happen 25% of the time?
When we “expect” certain outcomes, frustration and anger are going to come with it! When we dwell on the headwinds, sometimes of gale force, we lose the opportunity to adjust our sails and make some headway!
The winds of change are constant! But if we maintain our “True North” and never lose sight of our destination we can find that shore!
“Jesus answered, ;I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’” John 14:6.
Here’s to clear sailing!
