If you’ve ever been swimming in the ocean, riding the waves, you know the current can pull you to one side over time. You really don’t even know it’s happening. Finally, when you look up, you see your umbrella is hundreds of yards from where you started.
The same thing can happen in our life with Christ. we lose focus on Jesus and allow ourselves to gradually drift away over time.
It’s not that we even do it on purpose or notice it, we just let life get in the way to make everything else more important…one day we look up and see how far from Him we are.
Make the effort to stay anchored in your faith life by using prayer to periodically stop and look up to assess if the events of the day have you drifting away in a direction you don’t want to go.
