1st Truth: Setbacks/storms can cause you to drift.
“ 15 Since the ship was caught and was unable to head into the wind, we gave way to it and were driven along … 17 After hoisting it up, they used ropes and tackle and girded the ship. Then, fearing they would run aground on the Syrtis, they lowered the drift-anchor, and in this way they were driven along.” (Acts 27:15 , 17)
Various Ways A Storm/ Setback Can Cause You To Drift:
- You lose control of your objective.
- You stop trying.
- You give
- You're pressure-driven instead of cause-driven.
- You drift in every direction.
2nd Truth: Setbacks/storms can cause me to jettison what I valued.
“ 18 Because we were being severely battered by the storm, they began to jettison the cargo the next day. 19 On the third day, they threw the ship’s gear overboard with their own hands.” (Acts 27:18-19 )
They threw the ship’s cargo and gear overboard.
They consider throwing themselves overboard.
3rd Truth: Setbacks/storms can cause me to become disheartened.
“For many days neither sun nor stars appeared, and the severe storm kept raging. Finally all hope that we would be saved was disappearing.” (Acts 27:20 )
