Lifeboat Wisdom

If we let our minds follow random thoughts down the least resistance path, we tend to find ourselves sinking in a swamp of heavily burdened dark imaginings.

Such anchors may draw us to them like a lodestone of griefs past – or present.

It is much better to cut anchor and swim away than to sink deeper.

God’s word is an unsinkable lifeboat.

It is wise to climb aboard, listen, and hear the Skipper before going adrift.

It may take certain, forceful courage to face any future while refuting perceived danger in every shadow.

As so often happens fear dissipates as shadows are pierced, parting harmlessly as we pass through.

In Whom we put our full Trust will be most decisive.


The Truth can’t lie any more than darkness can be Light

  1. “Negative thoughts heal no wounds.” I like this, G.W.! It reminds me of the saying, “Nobody rises to low expectations.”

    There is so much meat in this post, but in so few words! You mean I don’t HAVE to carry around this lodestone?! Cut yourself loose and swim away. What an image!

    Thank you for the good word. Blessings.

  2. “God’s word is an unsinkable lifeboat.” Yes!!! This year I need to continue to be diligent about tying through memorization the Word as a life preserver around my heart and mind. Happy New Year G.W! May the Lord continue to bless your writing in the year to come. You and the work you publish on your blog are truly living out Matthew 5:14-15 “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill that cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand and it gives light to everyone in the house.”
