"Unfurl the sails, and let God steer us where He will." - Bede
If we trust in the goodness of God's plan for our lives then we will be more willing to let the sails down and to trust the move of his Spirit. If we question God's intentions and desire for our lives, then we will hold onto the sails for dear life and make sure that they never catch the wind. It takes a degree of faith to remain on the shore, but it takes great FAITH to unfurl the sails and believe that God will go with you always.
Psalm 25:1 - "In you, Lord my God, I put my trust."
