Through the Lens of Faith

Imagine yourself on a boat, sitting in the harbor. Are you anxious to set sail? Are you fine with justIMG_5440 sitting and observing?

Look at the boats around you. They are all different. The concept of moving across the water is the same, no matter what the vessel looks like.

Do you ever find yourself comparing your journey to that of others? In our faith lives, especially when we might be struggling, it can be hard to look at those others whose faith seems strong. We might feel our vessel of faith is gaining water and starting to sink.

Just remember that each vessel may look different but the concepts of faith or moving across the water are the same. Maybe it’s time for you to explore another vessel until yours gets moving.
