Life’s journey isn’t always smooth-sailing. Our ships will be battered and knocked off course due to poor judgment, boisterous winds and waves, hidden currents and rocks, or some treacherous icebergs. But the hazards of the journey shouldn’t cause despair. This, we learn from Apostle Paul’s long and dangerous voyage to Rome (Acts 27). Yes, the rough seas of life will cause delays, setbacks, and losses. Betrayals will hurt, prejudice, envy and hate will maim, failures will dishearten, regrets will sting, and opportunists will exploit. But, regardless of the rough seas, let’s find the will and faith to navigate to our destination. For Christ’s sake, let’s make discouragement our encouragement.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
