Be a Sea Turtle and Answer Jesus’ Call


Baby green sea turtle entering the ocean for the first time.

              “Step into your unknown destiny and go wherever Jesus leads you.”

By instinct, baby sea turtles are drawn irresistibly toward the ocean. Jesus made them that way. Bright, man-made lights can occasionally confuse them, but once the rescued baby turtles see the waves, they sprint into the surf!

With us, it’s different. We are invited to follow our Creator, to step out in faith and trust Him. But He doesn’t compel us; sometimes I wish He would.

In the past, my fears and insecurities have blocked me from traveling in a few new directions that Jesus chose for me.

I’ve become determined not to miss any more.

How about you? What unknown paths has Jesus challenged you to walk down lately?
