Sailboats fascinate me.
Something about them catches my interest every single time I see one out on the water.
This time, it was a rather large boat on the ocean.
Drifting along with sails spread out, the wind above the sea carrying them along on a bright and sunny day.
I took several photographs of the boat, capturing its journey in still snippets of time.
Describing the scene would be easy.
The definition itself draws me in.
Psalm 119:43-48 from The Message reads,
Don’t ever deprive me of truth, not ever – your commandments are what I depend on. Oh, I’ll guard with my life what you’ve revealed to me, guard it now, guard it ever; And I’ll stride freely through wide open spaces as I look for your truth and your wisdom; Then I’ll tell the world what I find, speak out boldly in public, unembarrassed. I cherish your commandments – oh, how I love them! – relishing every fragment of your counsel.
What if I didn’t have God’s truth deep within my heart?
What if I didn’t know how He wanted me to act?
What if He had never revealed anything to me?
I would be lost and desperate.
Bound by confusion.
Thankfully, I am not without God’s truth and direction.
I can “stride freely through wide open spaces” as I grow closer to Him, like a sailing vessel out on the open seas.
As I find more truth and more wisdom on my journey, I am changed—day by day—into the person God wants me to be.
