A ramble and an image of a boat...

I haven't written a post for a few weeks. An inability to put pen to paper or in this case cursor to pixels or something like that. So this is a ramble post...

Our church is taking part in the Bible Fresh E100 reading programme. Not only is it fascinating to hear people discussing the Bible in new ways, but there is also a new vigor in wanting to understand His Word, it's brilliant and encouraging all wrapped up in God's work. For me the Bible gives direction and focus in my life to keep moving forward. It's all the books about life that you could ever want to read, all wrapped up in one, relevant and here, a living Word.

This morning I was thinking about direction and focus which reminded me of an image about boats that have travelled great distances to reach the safety of their home. Each captain looking out and seeing, nothing but darkness, whilst being thrown around by crashing waves attempting to knock them off-course and preventing them from reaching their heart's desire. Then there's a light in the distance a beacon pulling the boats into safety. A light house guiding the vessels in from the darkness 24-7.

Told you this was a ramble, so there you go...
