'I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me'

How do you steer: by the stars or the wake?
you steer: by the stars or the wake? A ship`s captain does not lean
over the stern of his ship and set his course by looking at the wake; he stands
on the bridge and sets his route by the stars; to do anything else would court
disaster. God has a plan and purpose for our lives, which are not discerned by
looking to our past, however bad or good. Our job is to look up and to trust
and obey him. Does anyone love us more than our heavenly father? Is anyone
wiser, or more knowledgeable, or more powerful than the creator of the heavens
and the earth? It is, therefore, plain daft to rely on our understanding and to
do anything other than to trust and obey him. Ron.
