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 oft’ to stay afloat.
A tiny boat that hugged the shore
I rarely looked for something more.
“Come leave that boat upon the sand,
Embrace the life for you I’ve planned.
A ship of faith with sails unfurled,
A voyage through an unseen world.
“In the storm let faith be tried,
Know My presence by your side.
Amid the wind and roaring sea,
Be assured you’re safe with Me.”
Little boats can never be
Vessels for the open sea,
Little dreams cannot fulfil
The Father’s plans, the Father’s will.
