Many times I have felt lost, on the verge of giving up and unsure of how much longer I could hold on, when the Lord finds me right where I’m at and sets me back on the right path.
A lost penguin, called Happy Feet, turned up on a New Zealand shore, far from his home in Antarctica. The warm climate and lack of food made it difficult for the penguin to survive. But when he was spotted on a beach hanging on to life, professionals, who knew Happy Feet’s needs, nursed him back to health, pointed him in the direction of home and set him free.
If we believe in Him, Jesus will find us no matter how far off of the path we have strayed.
“For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” - Luke 19:10
Scientists are tracking Happy Feet’s journey home and so can you. The following link is to a satellite map that updates Happy Feet’s progress: www.nzemperor.com.

Oswald Chambers, “My Utmost for His Highest,” on John 15:11:

The Little Mermaid wanted to be a person but sometimes I think being a mermaid would be better. You could just find a treasure-filled sunken ship to live in, focus all of your attention on winning the incredibly attractive man with feat and eat sushi all day long…
It just goes to show you that even mermaids who don’t pay rent or need jobs want a different life. Proverbs 10:29 says “The way of the Lord gives refuge to the honest man.” Synonyms for refuge are shield, shelter, security, sanctuary, fortress, anchorage, stronghold, opening. The way of the Lord is the only way to saftey, freedom and being content, no matter what our circumstance is in life.
p.s. Even though her Prince Charming sweeps her off of her feet in the end, Ariel’s sad tune would have eventually changed a little but she still would have “wanted more” soon enough…
How can you be content in your own life? I have an idea: Ephesians 5:1-2
What waves are in your life today?
