The Great Wave art print by dreamery studio
When Jesus beckoned me to come walk out on the water
I was so excited I forgot about the waves
All I could see was His face
Urging me to come
The first steps are shaky but sure
What joy! What excitement!
Faith like a buoy propels my feet forward
But then what's this that blows across the water?
A wave? A tempest? A storm?
No longer are my steps secure
My eyes falter, the face of Jesus blurs
Would He let me sink now when he has called me to His side?
Doubt becomes the most treacherous of waves
An overwhelming urge to save myself
Sinks me further from the only one who can
But then He's there
Strong hands pulling me into the safety of His arms
The face I lost sight of
Now swimming in my tears
Oh Jesus, did I really love my life so much
I would take my eyes off of you just to save it?
It is YOU who called me
It is YOU who will see me through
And I count my life as nothing
Just to walk on the waves to you
Didn't know how else to say it. So I remembered His Words here and here. Wrote this poem. And listened to this song over and over again.
