Sailors need to have a little trust in the wind.  These sail boats are tacking into the wind to make progress.  It is kind of amazing that a boat can travel up to a certain degree into the oncoming wind.

Sometimes in life it seems like we are traveling against the flow.  But when it seems like the way is not possible, Jesus gives us strength to continue.  Especially when it seems like we have made too many mistakes, Jesus has a special promise.  In John 5:24 Jesus says, “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.”

Let’s hold on to Jesus’ words and set our sails to follow Him.  He will give us strength to move forward, which we can happily do with His assurance and promise.
