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



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Your writing is beautiful. I read your profile and I was thinking wow she's won of the great ones and she's a teacher...beautiful. I've often had a desire to be a greater writer and have put pen to paper for many years, but now it's time for me to listen and appreciate the words that God allow us to string together for His Glory and honor...your words are some of the best I've ever seen...thank you for mentoring people like me just by the sheer awesome power of your gift.

Really lovely and meaningful. "A ship of faith with sails unfurled A voyage through an unseen world" Wow! That's just gorgeous! I think it would be much better without the quotation marks which I found distracting. Plus, you have an extra in there. ;)
