This is a blogpost I wrote from 2012 and never published, but I think it's still just as good now :)

So yesterday we arrived here in Conakry, Guinea after a smooth sail from the island of Tenerife where the ship had been having a bit of a fix up. Sailing is an interesting experience, it is beautiful to be out on the water. It is strange not to see any land and not to be able to leave your ship home for days. You can't see where you are going and doesn't seem like you are getting anywhere, at least to those of us who aren't driving. It is hard for me to be patient when I'm sailing. I have to keep reminding myself to enjoy the experience and stop concentrating on when I'm going to get there. It's hard to trust someone else's plan for you and just enjoy it. I realize I do that with God's plan for me as well. I just want to know what the plan is and where I am going and I don't understand when he says wait. Wait for him to develop his character in me so that I can be ready to fulfill his plan. That is the hard part, especially for an impatient person like myself. But it's a lot happier existence for me if I trust him and enjoy where I am right now.
