My head tends to be a jumble of stuff. It’s a changing mixture that combines things I’ve read, seen, and heard in a mix that I continually pray prompts thinking, being, and ministering in ways that bring glory to God and result in Kingdom advancement. In an effort to not only sort out what’s in my own head, but to share some of it in the hope that it might prompt the aforementioned in others along with some healthy discussion, I’m launching this weekly (every Friday) short post with a thought (my own or one I’ve read) or quote for you to consider. And so. . . Friday Fodder #1. . .
“Faith never prospers better than when everything comes against it, for storms are its trainers and lightening its illuminator. When calm reigns on the sea, you can spread your ship’s sails if you wish, but she will not move towards the desired harbor, for when the ocean slumbers the ship’s keel sleeps as well. Yet when winds begin to howl and waves begin to rise, the ship may rock from side to side, her deck may be washed with waves, and her mast may creak under the pressure of the full and swelling sails, but it is only then she makes great headway toward her desired haven.” – Charles Spurgeon
