Get your feet wet!
I’ve been thinking about what it means to be led by the Spirit and the phrase “riding the waves…”
I went to Elora Gorge a few weekends ago and realized that in order to have fun and join what everyone else was doing, I had to take off my sandals and get my feet wet. I couldn’t just stay on a rock and expect to enjoy my time there.
This past weekend we went to Wasaga beach. I was feeling a bit sick but decided to still swim. The waves weren’t crazy or anything, but as we went deeper, my cousin was a bit nervous because they got kind of high at one point. I had this revelation that if I want to ride God’s waves and follow what He’s doing and where He’s going, then I have to stay calm and just go with it. You don’t know what each wave will be like, how high or how mellow it’ll be. We’re not supposed to know or understand everything. But it can be pretty exciting when you stay calm, jump when you need to, and trust that you’re not going to drown.
