THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
WHEN YOU’RE IN THE WAVES, GRAB ON TO THE BROKEN PIECES
In Acts 27, in the midst of the storm at sea, God PROMISED the apostle Paul that he and the ship’s CREW would SURVIVE, but the ship would be lost. It would have been much LESS traumatic if God had saved the SHIP, but SOMETIMES our boat goes down. The GOOD news is that the wooden boat’s broken PIECES helped float them to SAFETY. We think we have to have the BOAT, but God had a PLAN so that their BROKENNESS became their BREAKTHROUGH.
YOU may have lost someone or something precious to YOU, but what you have LEFT is what you NEED. God didn’t let you lose SO much that you can’t make it to where He’s TAKING you. When you’re in the waves, grab on to the BROKEN pieces. That means to keep believing that what God PROMISED is still on the WAY. Keep THANKING God for His GOODNESS. He doesn’t CHANGE His mind. The boat may have broken APART, but you’re still going to make it to your DESTINY.
Acts 27:41, NIV
But the ship struck a sandbar and ran aground. The bow stuck fast and would not move, and the stern was broken to pieces by the pounding of the surf.
