"Who is the happier person? The person who has braved the storm of life and lived or the person who has stayed securely on shore and merely existed." - Unknown
Following God is about risks and counting the cost. Being a Christian is never about being afraid to step out in faith and to follow Christ. We will need to be brave to follow Jesus through the storms of life and to trust in his mercy and care. When we do this we will not avoid suffering, but we will be 'happier' for trusting in God's grace.
What is stopping you from venturing off the shores?
Isaiah 38:3 - “Remember, Lord, how I have walked before you faithfully and with wholehearted devotion and have done what is good in your eyes.”
Romans 3:28 - Our lives get in step with God and all others by letting him set the pace, not by proudly or anxiously trying to run the parade.
Living in Grace
