I, too, am adrift and feel as though I am at the mercy of a spinning compass and empty sails. Forced to stay in a place I was bound to leave, I must now drop anchor and lean on faith for my continued survival.
“But it ain’t our feelings we have to steer by through life—no, no, we’d make shipwreck mighty often if we did that. There’s only the one safe compass and we’ve got to set our course by that—what it’s right to do.” ~Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne’s House of Dreams
It is not easy to stay in a town that has never and will never feel like home. It is not easy to stay in a job that has no future or opportunity for growth. My morale is low. I beg daily for guidance and direction. I ask for prayers that will help give me the energy to keep a breeze in my sails so that I can continue my journey … even if it is voyage that does nothing but send me around and around the dinky harbor of which I currently reside.
"We are all drifting reefwards now, and faith is our only anchor.”
~Bram Stoker, Dracula
