The Road – Inns and Waysides

Greetings Dear Reader,

I have often read the quote, “The safest place for a ship is in a harbor, but that is not what ships are meant for.”  As I have moved, downsized, and accepted solitude I wonder if I have left harbor for the first time in some time.

I have planned my journey south to help with the transition.  Now I feel that first tinge of breeze catching my sails.  I feel the call of the road.  I will rest where I am welcomed and ponder things as I travel.  The road has lessons to teach and I have more lessons still to learn.

Not everything about this transition has to be bad.  I can find Christ in the moment if I continue to seek him.  There are larger questions to which I would find answers but those answers are not guaranteed.  I have, however, felt that the questions tell us more about God than the answers ever do.  I am learning that they also reveal more about me and where I am in my journey.

I love inns and taverns.  I must be careful that I do not get so comfortable that I forget I am on a journey.  Perhaps I can turn feeling that I no longer have a home into a constant reminder that that is where I am headed.  After all, what use is a good ship and a star to steer her by if I never set sail.

Sail On – The Imperials

Sail on
When the water gets high
Sail on
When the wind starts to die
Sail on
It's just a matter of minutes
Till His ship comes to get us
And we'll all get in it

When we're all born
We set out to sea
Looking for answers continuously
Then when we find out
To Him we belong
We watch for the signs
And keep sailing on

Cast up your sails
And let the wind blow
Jesus will never
Let your ship lose control
Just keep your compass set on the Son
And He'll guide you safely
To His beautiful Home

We can't afford to throw our lives
To the wind
To the wind
We've got the Lord
In control of our ship
And He'll guide us safely in
He'll guide us in

Cast up your sails
And let the wind blow
Jesus will never
Let your ship lose control
Just keep your compass set on the Son
And He'll guide you safely
To His beautiful Home

Sail on
When the water gets high
Sail on
When the wind starts to die
Sail on
It's just a matter of minutes
Till His ship comes to get us
And we'll all get in it

Wishing you joy in the journey,

Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
