Captain God

This restless sea inside of me

Tries to pull me under

But I’ve learned to sail by the winds of Your Word

Unmoved by strike nor thunder

My compass spins out of control

Guided by worry and doubt

But my Captain aboard anticipated the course

And lovingly steers the whole route

I cannot see what’s ahead of me

But certain treasures I know will be there

His companionship and peace sustain me

As I sail with my God in prayer.

Sailing

You steered me into the storm

On my trusty boat I went

But the winds picked up

Soon flailing overboard

All my senses spent

This was the way to go?

Why on such a rough sea?

Isn’t there a smoother path

Somewhere designed for me?

But the wind against my sails

Taught me a lesson or two

Gave me new strength and courage

And pointed me straight to you
