Trust for the Future

The idea of “the future” invokes many emotions, hopes, worries, dreams, and personal questions. Some try not to think about it at all, while others are captivated by its promise. To be clear, there’s a certain end result as revealed to John, but there are also many choices to be made in-between. With that in mind, I once-again offer this simple poem as encouragement to “set your sails” according to the truth and trust the Lord for the destination.

“One ship drives east and another drives west

With the selfsame winds that blow.

“Tis the set of the sails and not the gales

Which tells us the way to go.

Like the winds of the sea are the ways of fate,

As we voyage along through life:

“Tis the set of the soul

That decides its goal,

And not the calm or the strife.”

– Ella Wheeler Wilcox
