Like an ocean, so wide and deep
With an unending view of waters that cover the sea and the blue sky up above
So is life, full of numerous adventures, events, seasons and activities
There are times when sailing along the ocean of life is fun and beautiful
But there are also those times when life seems to be lonely and disastrous.
When the waters get turbulent,
When the storms and tempests arise and tend to ravage the peace of the voyage,
When it seems like you’re in the middle of nowhere,
All by yourself and the rest of life seems far away from you,
When it seems like your compass has lost its bearing
And you can’t find direction and get yourself to a safe haven
When the brightness of your lamp seems to fade
When your light turns dark and your morning feels like night
You’re left with just two options:
Give in to defeat, fear and hopelessness or
Be courageous, rise with faith and call upon God, the Creator of the universe.
Howbeit, the fearful and hopeless will be consumed by the tempest and are soon forgotten
But the courageous and faith-driven will find Grace, become tough to face the storm and navigate through the tempest.
They will remain alive and become stronger to tell the story of their conquest and they will be celebrated as world heroes who remained tenacious and courageous even in the midst of storms.
Which will you rather be? The fearful or the courageous?
