Adjust Your Sails

Printer-friendly version
June 10, 2010

What do we do when circumstances happen to us? We need to be flexible and have a right attitude.

A friend has a beautiful refrigerator magnet that states: “I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails.” This saying is an excellent reminder for her, and it can be for us too. Often we have no control over what comes our way in life, but we can adjust our choices, our attitudes and how we handle everything from gentle breezes to the gusts and storms of life.

We should daily adjust our sails in life toward God and living the principles in the Bible (Matthew:4:4). If we do that, we will arrive at the destination God wants for each of us. Happy sailing!
