One Minute with God: Setting Sail
There is nothing more exhilarating then setting your sail on the open waters of the horizon. When the forecast is clear and the birds are chirping, the wind is blowing, and the skies are blue - you can almost taste and smell the liberating power of the sea. She is vast, she is deep, and she is timing with life.
When entering our floating vessel we trust that all its gadgets will help us navigate safely to our desired destination. And, when we are confident that all of the moving parts are functional we haul the anchor, and take sail into the un chartered waters beyond the waves.
Just like the forefathers, and settlers of this great nation who over three hundred years ago voyaged in a journey of faith to find a land where justice would reign, and freedom would sing. We, like many of them, have taken our own sail, and have been confronted with insurmountable challenges that would test our resolve.
Today, we have been caught in the middle of a whirlpool of uncertainty. A place where the unpredictable power of a pandemic has struck at the core of our freedoms. And, a time when the currents of racial tensions are literally foaming at it’s mouth. And, like many of our ancestors whose hopes were tarnished, and whose mental strength were challenged - we to have been entrusted with this time to prove our faithful and moral fortitude.
Let us be encouraged to return and drink from the well of faith. An unlimited resource of strength that only God provides to calm our sail through the darken nights of our journey. Where the winds of change only work to help benefit the peaceful freedom of all. And, where the knowledge of His sovereignty is once again entrusted to a people who knows that only He can change the tempest, and send a steady breeze that would allow our nation to find the northern star on her moral compass again.
For we wish you all a Happy Fourth, and smooth sailing. For we are One Nation, Under God, indivisible, with liberty, and Justice for all.
