sails to the wind

"I am seeing more and more that we begin to learn what it is to walk by faith when we learn to spread out all that is against us: all our physical weakness, loss of mental power, spiritual inability - all that is against us inwardly and outwardly - as sails to the wind and expect them to be vehicles for the power of Christ to rest upon us. It is so simple and self-evident - but so long in the learning!"
-Lilias Trotter

(I read and loved this quote in A Blossom in the Desert, a compilation by Miriam Huffman Rockness of Lilias Trotter's beautiful writings and art.)
