“I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.” — Jimmy Dean (1928-2010), American singer and actor

Sometimes, life seems to be taking us in the right direction; sometimes not. Sometimes the winds seem to be blowing us in the completely wrong direction, and life isn’t how we would wish it to be.

But we are not at the mercy of the winds in our life. We can set our sails and use our rudder to steer the ship of our lives in the direction we want to go.

Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth.

Ephesians 4:14 (NLT)

If we’re being influenced by someone and going in the wrong direction, we need to grow up! Then set our sails and steer in the right direction. May you set your sails aright today; you may not be able to change the wind that’s blowing, but you can choose the direction you sail.
