Captain of the ship

Sailboat pilot Steve Strickland was headed to Chesapeake Bay from Queens, New York, early on Labor Day when nature called.

He set the boat on autopilot and stepped away, but “the autopilot shut off,” he said. The boat, which he’d bought only three weeks before, hit a rock jetty and became stuck in the sand at a beach in Ocean City, New Jersey, around 4 a.m. Strickland had to wait until afternoon to get a tow.

For him, Labor Day amounted to “a lot of headache and a lot of money.”

It’s easy to think everything is under control only to find out the hard way that no one is steering your ship. Trust in Jesus to captain your vessel and never find yourself dashed on the rocks of life.
