Ship in the Storm

Ship in the Storm

 

There was a storm blowing around her

The waves of the sea pounded her sides

Some almost overtaken her

Toss among the waves

She fears losing her mast

She fears losing her way

Adrift in the ocean depth

 

She calls out Captain! Captian!

Where are you?

Have you abandoned me to face this storm?

The winds howl and lighting flash

She was toss to and from

The Captain called out

But she could not hear His voice

For the storm was louder

He tries to shout again

But winds carried His voice away

Her fears grew as the chaos continued around her

Howling and howling

until she thought she could take no more

 

She closes her mind and opens her heart

She knew her foundation was strong

Made by the wise men at the Captain’s hands

Her sails raised

Her oars planted in the ocean deep

Her anchor raised

Her sailors prayed

She shouted out to the storm

“YOU CAN NOT HAVE ME!”

 

The Captain heard her

She felt His hand at wheel

As He sails Her away batter but wiser

To the safety of the shore

Sometimes God lets us face the storm.

Peace and Love
