The Sea of Life

         The Sea of Life

The sea of life
was very rough.
I sought safety
in a life-boat
of silent prayer.
With a life-jacket
of faith around me
in a calmness
known only to me.
I gave myself to God,
promising to do His will.
Yes, I let go
of all my pain
and all my sorrow
with no thought of tomorrow.
Down came
a life-line
direct from God
with a special
filled with grace.
It was time
I changed my life-style.
He is my life guard
and I am His
in this life time
and beyond.
He leads me on
into Eternal Life!

"Cast your burden on the Lord and
He will sustain you."(Psalm 55:23)
