they sailed on
They sailed on.
Amidst of the great pirate storm, they sailed.
Against the great North-East wind, they sailed.
In the roaring wilderness of great deep BlueOcean, they sailed.
Without the guidance of natural light, they sailed.
Great sailors like Henry the Navigator, Christian Columbus, among other great sailors sailed against the tides of the storm and wind.
They sailed in their quest and voyage on the endless ocean. They sailed day and night with little rest like a determined lion exploiting new land for a den.
They met many challenges in their voyage, of which they had no known destination. Yet they overcame the storm, the tides, and the ever ending threat of the great ocean. Above all the overcame the fear of the unknown. Their voyage led them to greater opportunities, and today the success of their exploitation could be seen from the great nations they discovered.
We have taken up our arm like soldiers ready for battle.
We have embarked on a voyage, for life is a great voyage and only those that can sail without minding the threat of the ocean, and the ebbs and flows of life can sail on to the end. The difference is that, unlike those great sailors, we can decide the destination of our voyage and take the course that will lead us to the expected end. Those great sailors did not meet peace and gentleness on the ocean which they sailed yet they sailed and succeeded despite the oppositions they met. Consequently as we sail in our voyage of life, we should be ready to withstand oppositions on the path and sail with confidence and determination to our divine destination. Yet the secret of our success shall be, just as some great sailors have proven, we must keep sailing even amidst the greatest storm.
