The Main Quest – All Those Who Wander

Greetings Dear Reader,

There is something about every great quest that seems hopeless, impossible, or even a little mad.   The quest seems foolish so easily.   I am following by faith someone I cannot see.  I learned about him through an old book handed down for centuries.  I am seeking things that I cannot see.

Everything about my current life is temporary.   Everything I have will be someone else’s trash or treasure some day.  The entirety of my life will be weighed by the value of things that cannot be touched.

To the uneducated eye Christ followers are wandering homeless.  We are not supposed to have a “home” her.  We are on the sea, questing for that undiscovered country.  We are weary travelers in search of rest.  If all this sounds a bit disjointed, then It is because it is.  Although the quest is completely logical it is also mad. 

We are not just lost travelers.  We are pilgrims.  We have a destination that matters.  We know where we are going even when we are not sure how to get there.  Our obligation is to keep moving.  Our job is to follow.

Sail on Sailor – Mustard Seed Faith

Sailin’ over the ocean
In search of life’s mysteries
Torn by tears and fears, forgotten dreams
And rusty memories

Sail on, sailor
Til you find what it is you’re lookin’ for
Trim your sails and turn your ship around
To the Lord

So many ports you’ve seen
And still your search goes on
Hoping that you’d find your way
But loneliness and pain are all you’ll ever find
Until your captain is the Lord

Sail on, sailor
Til you find what it is you’re lookin’ for
Trim your sails and turn your ship around
To the Lord

Sail on, sailor
Til you find what it is you’re lookin’ for
Trim your sails and turn your ship around
To the Lord

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.”
