January 4, 2020 – Good Ship Zion

“God’s plan is in place. He is at the helm, and His great and powerful ship flows toward salvation and exaltation. Remember that we cannot get there by jumping out of the boat and trying to swim there by ourselves.

Let us be grateful for the beautiful Old Ship Zion, for without it we are cast adrift, alone and powerless, swept along without rudder or oar, swirling with the strong currents of the adversary’s wind and waves.”

  1. Elder M. Russell Ballard, “God Is at the Helm”, General Conference, October 2015

Jumping ship is not an option if we want to gain eternal life. Our only option is to stay aboard, let God direct it, while Christ steers it. The waves in the water are rough. The winds howl all around. There is safety in the ship. We will still feel the winds but if we are holding on inside the ship, we’ll be okay. The seas and winds will get tougher before there is a calm and stillness. Just hold on. Trust that God and Christ are leading us through to safety. Above all, enjoy the ride.
