Lose sight of the shore
“One does not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.” — André Gide
To live a life of faith, we must be willing to relinquish the illusion of control. This does not imply being imprudent or foolhardy, but it does suggest that our vision is limited at best. Putting our trust in what we cannot see may feel risky at first, but living a reactive, fearful life is ultimately the more dangerous course. If we sacrifice our freedom to a false sense of security, we will likely end up neither free nor safe.
