It Was Never Made to Stop You
Do you sometimes wonder, why is this seeming obstacle in such an out of the way place? Could it be that the problem is seeing the fence in the ocean, as an obstacle, as something designed to stop you, rather than as something meant to keep you safe, to guide you to where you need to be? Could it be that this thing that you are experiencing now, is in fact preparing you and equipping you for your future. What if instead of seeing it as something that is going to stop you, you saw it as something that is going to make you, mould you and refine you? This does not mean that you will become the bad thing, or that you follow along with what whatever the trend is, but that for every hardship we face there is an opportunity to be thankful, there is a chance to be grateful for the one who never changes, who always is there to guide us; the Holy Spirit. Without this guide, we would be lost at sea and going into waters shallow that we should never go. With him, we can face the water, and come out stronger, because of the work being done in us on the way.
