My Ship of Faith
He said my life was meant to be
A sailing ship upon the sea,
To bear His love to far off places
Speak His hope to down-turned faces.
Instead aboard a tiny boat
I struggled oftâ€™ to stay afloat.
A tiny boat that hugged the shore
I rarely looked for something more.
â€śCome leave that boat upon the sand,
Embrace the life for you Iâ€™ve planned.
A ship of faith with sails unfurled,
A voyage through an unseen world.
â€śIn the storm let faith be tried,
Know My presence by your side.
Amid the wind and roaring sea,
Be assured youâ€™re safe with Me.â€ť
Little boats can never be
Vessels for the open sea,
Little dreams cannot fulfil
The Fatherâ€™s plans, the Fatherâ€™s will.
