Have you ever had to wrestle with the feeling of the “unknown?” If not, let me describe it for you. It is a blend of: stomach churning, restless sleeping, plain old uncomfortableness!! It is a feeling that without proper tending, can completely take you over and make you feel hopeless…BUT there IS HOPE!
I am so glad that when I have this “unknown uneasiness” I can name it, and keep “swimming forward.” Though each stroke might get tougher and tougher, I am so glad that God has/is a life-saver.
Please do not get me wrong, the feeling of “floating alone” in a sea full of people, is SO real. However, I have learned that the moment I think I might just go under, God finds a way to prop me up and help me stay afloat. I have found that the life-saving property of God is MORE THAN enough to not only save me from drowning, but also gives me hope to float in my unknown “seas” of life.
So for those of you who find yourself in this SEAson of life, be up-lifted by the Ultimate Life-Saver, God. Know that your troubled sea of the unknown is utterly and completely known by God. God’s hand will lift you in ways that are unexpected, unexplainable, and unimaginable, just call out. Though you might feel like a woman/man overboard, know that these waves and turbulent times are pushing you away from the complacency of the shore line.
It’s time to set sail my friends. It’s time to go into the destiny of the unknown and face the waves. Face those things that have held you back for so long, FEAR, FAILURE, DEFEAT, DESPAIR. While I am not promising you that the next SEAsons of your life will be smooth sailing, I can attest that GOD, the Ultimate Life-Saver will step in; or should I say “swim” in right on time!
