Andre Gide said that, "One does not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time." Sometimes we spend our time searching for a glimpse of something to guide us or show us the way or show us how to change. Even though we may be used to finding our way by sight, we are not always able to use sight if we want to grow and become better. We need to also rely on faith!
If we cannot find our way by sight, then we need to be sure our faith is properly placed. When we attempt to place our faith in earthly things, we will lose our way. Choosing to live by faith needs to include placing our faith in God. He is the only One that can sustain us and lead us through this life and to eternal glory with Him. With faith in God, we can find our way, we can grow in our spiritual lives, and we can become better people. Instead of stumbling with our own limited sight, we can trust in God and have faith that He will lead us and provide exactly what we need!
Place your faith in God and allow Him to lead!
Thank You for leading me through life. Help me to continually grow in my faith in You and to become a better person. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
