247. The Storms of Life 2

One of my readers commented on Post 244, The Storms of Life.

“This reminds me of a statement my dad would say,  ‘The same winds hit all men; the difference is how you set your sails.’”

Imagine you are on a sailboat caught in a fierce widespread storm heading from northwest to southeast. If you set your sails to the west, you will head into the teeth of the storm, to the east and the storm will follow you, to the south and you will still be in the storm for miles and miles. But if you set your sails to the north, you will soon be out of the storm. Jesus Christ is True North.

About Patrick Day

triumphoverdepression.org This blog is my ministry to support those who are depressed, in gratefulness for my having overcome major depression. Read "About Patrick Day" just to the right of "home" on the top of the blog site to find out more particulars about me. I retired from a career in higher education, where I served as Dean of Instruction, and promptly moved into a life of purposelessness and despair for five years, finally coming out on the other side. I am now an author, a business and life coach, a writer of this blog, and a volunteer for various organizations. What I write about in this blog is not hypothetical comments on depression. I have been there, felt the horrible pain, had my life disrupted, and experienced everything that I write about. I pray that I may be a blessing to you.
