The tsunami is not such a mighty force without a slew of variables.
…..The swell must reach a certain height in a certain place at a certain time.
…..A boat or school of fish might pass by and imprint its mark.
Very few variables–relatively speaking to this whole process–will have some direct impact on the final crescendo of this crashing wave.
There is no less honour for the parts early in this cycle than late.
As a community, let us build a tsunami of change.
…..However, just as this awesome phenomena can and often is devastating, so too can our actions be destructive.
Let us turn the too-known devastation of a tsunami into something beautiful as it instead sculpts rugged cliffs in the sunset.
We will succeed. We will also make terrible, terrible mistakes.
In our darkest hours, find the compassion God has awakened in us to seek a more perfect consequence.
In our crowning glories, find the joy God has blessed us with to strive for a more perfect peace.
In everything, inspire and be inspired, to advance. Motivate and be motivated, to grow.
Our actions, our thoughts, our words–they all contribute to this tsunami. Respect yourself. Respect others. Be deliberate in your choices.
Pursue the passions and gifts God has endowed upon you, for the work of the Lord knows no bound for progress. He plans for the good of those who love Him. So…
Speak out, no matter how loud or shaky.
Stand up, no matter how tall or steady.
You are the wind, the water, the fish, and the foam.
You have His power within you.
You are blessed.
You. Have. a Purpose.
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon Me, and ye shall go and pray unto Me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek Me, and find Me, when ye shall search for Me with all your heart.” – Jeremiah 29:11-13 KJV
