Drifting

Drifting

Acts 27:15 “The ship was caught by the storm and could not head into the wind; so we gave way to it and were driven along.”

Amplified: and when the ship was caught in it and could not head against the wind [to gain stability], we gave up and [letting her drift] were driven along.

You can see them come. Storms.

Some choose to run from them but are ultimately caught by them. It is hard to outrun a storm that is heading your way.

You can have 2 options in a storm:

  1. Face it and try to keep everything balanced in your life.
  2. Drift.

Paul’s ship struggled to stay balanced and so it drifted.

My thoughts on drifting:

  1. Drifters will reach any destination but probably not their chosen one.
  2. Drifters have tried but failed so have given up.
  3. Drifters have permitted the outside circumstance to dictate their lives.
  4. Drifters had huge potential, dreams and purpose.
  5. Drifters are drifting because of perhaps only one bad decision that meant they are today where they should never have been.
