Throw It Overboard And Survive – Acts 27:18

“And because we were exceedingly tempest-tossed, the next day they lightened the ship.”

How long shall the tempest and violent waves be ignored by the sojourner in a storm? Often times we feel helpless during great seasons of trial, failing to the realize that is a way that will help us endure to the end. At some point, survival instinct demands we change the what, how or why we are doing…so that we can live to sail another day on calmer seas. The Apostle Paul‘s crew made the decision to lighten their load when the storm was overbearing. By lightening the load, it gave them the best shot at survival. Why do we hold on to things that are causing us to sink deeper and faster? Often times we take too much with us for the journey when faith only required our heart. Let go of the material things that are causing you stress, relinquish the opportunities that are draining your resources. To make it through this storm you need a word from the Lord but to stay afloat you may need to let go things go that are holding you back from peace and safety.
