Out of whatever direction the wind blow, it will blow us on our Lord

"Out of whatever airt (direction) the wind blow, it will blow us on our Lord: no wind can blow our sails overboard, because Christ’s skill and honour of his wisdom, are empawned and laid down at the stake for the sea-passengers, that he shall put them safe off his hand on the shore, in his Father’s known bounds, our native home ground." -- Rutherford, Samuel, and Ellen S. Lister. The Loveliness of Christ: Extracts from the Letters of Samuel Rutherford. Edinburgh: Banner of Truth Trust, 2007, 18. [Letter CCXXIX, 5 Sept. 1637]
