I bet it was scary the first time a sailor lost sight of land.
There is a beautiful fear in the depths of the ocean. The unknown.
But something the early explorers understood was, if you want to reach the other side of the shore, you have to lose sight of this one.
And it’s scary.
But some of the greatest discoveries have happened, because of someone’s willingness to get lost in order to be found.
I think the same is true with our faith and intimacy with God.
Sometimes God seems like the end of the world. Is it true or not?
Sometimes following God seems like the unknowns of the ocean. Is it worth it or not?
The only way to find out, is by going. And it will be scary.
But in getting lost we will be found.
In the unknown we will find beauty.
But if you want to reach the other shore, you have to be willing to lose sight of this one.
It’s the only way.
One thought on “A Whole New World”
So very true.
