A ship is launched: a bottle of champagne is broken over the bow and the ship is released from its holding place. And the Lord said:
‘I commission you to sail the course set for you. I release the chains that have held you and I call you into service of my Kingdom. It is time for you to set sail upon the open seas, to feel the spray of freedom upon your face, to taste the salt carried on the wind.’
The Lord has commissioned you to step out of the dry places and step into his plan and purpose for your life. To live a life free from the things of the past that have chained you and held you motionless. Taste and see that He is good!
I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. This poor man called, and the Lord heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
