OVERBOARD!




So, after hearing some gossip, I've been thinking about how we try to hide a tear in an ocean. Or, hide an ocean in a tear. Either way? He seas. He knows the diff between man overboard and when we've gone overboard with our thoughts or words. Whether we cause the waves that take us overboard or just happen to be on that ship of fools being tossed about, He seas and cares. We have, within our power, when we hear gossip, to stir the pot or stir the heart. To assail or sail. If we pass on the hurtful gossip we stir the pot and become part of the crashing waves even if it shows the truth and rights us. If we are quiet, we can stir hearts by letting God work. The latter is most difficult. We all want to be righted and have others know the real truth. We all like that, right? But, being righted can't  always be within our rights lest we wrong others, too. It’s a lonely walk on that high road sometimes. And, we sure would love to take the low road for just enough time to be right. Cross over that bridge of troubled waters, but stop for just a sec, right? Instead? We should be sailing out on the ocean of a higher calling of God’s truth and letting His waves of calm seas be the balm of healing.  The calm and the balm wipes away the tears. Whether the high road or the high seas, He seas. Thankfully.  Lest we go overboard! We try so hard to hide our tears in an ocean and an ocean in our tears. But, He seas.
