Sometimes in the waves of change we find our true direction.
How many times in my life have I knelt in prayer to ask God for guidance only to find my life turned upside down? As I stood watching the wave’s crash upon the seashore I realize that the same all mighty hand that is shaping the shoreline is molding me. And the waves that take us away are the same ones that can carry us home. So, why do we struggle against the waves of change? Are they not God’s instruments to make us more like him? God sometimes takes us into troubled waters not to drown us but to cleanse us.
The waves may hurt our feelings, but remember, feelings are much like waves, we can’t stop them from coming but we can choose which ones to surf.
