Family Ship

I'm captain of this family ship... sailing uncharted waters into the future... shipmates are my two kids looking to their father captain... thinking he knows where he is going... I lost sight of the shore long ago... tossed by wind and wave I keep going confident God leads us... Noah had no rudder on the ark... nor do I in this life venture... kids play blissfully in the belly of this ship oblivious to the treacherous waters... my eyes keen on the storms ahead seeking safe harbor... precious cargo I carry...

All I know is to keep going on though storms threaten... God leads me... surely He will protect where He leads...

This world is hostile causing destruction, loss, failure, and death... my course is charted by God's word and I sail on against impossible odds...

My mind... my mind... must be renewed... fed by God's words... lest I stumble fall and sink... I see light in His word... my guiding star to which my compass is set… in His word I see the shore... solid ground... a place of plenty... life in abundance. My soul has cried out for this land.

While still tossed by wind and wave my soul is founded by faith on solid ground of Christ... the anchor of my soul beyond the veil compels me... Jesus is real and true... “I will not sink nor fail” my mind continues telling me... it is written... so be it...
