I read a quote the other day that resonated with me and I want to share it with you: Man cannot discover new oceans until he has the courage to lose sight of the shore. Now if that doesn’t float your boat nothing will (excuse the pun!). Sometimes we have to let go of the old, let go of our comfort zone, let go of something….. in order to follow God in the new thing to which He is calling us.
God may be calling you to step out in faith. You may have already taken that leap of faith and now find yourself in a raging storm wondering why you took the leap of faith. But man cannot discover new oceans without leaving the shoreline. Don’t give up. Remember that when the disciples found themselves in the storm, Jesus came to them and quieted the storm. You can stay on the safe shore or you can step out in faith and discover new oceans of opportunity. Never easy but always worth the risk.
