Guard of Life

I found life’s waters raging deep
My footing there I could not keep
I had no rest nor did I sleep

Lifeguard

At first I fought and tried to scream
With horror knew this was no dream
Quickly I was losing steam

Lifeguard

Wrestling there, I did my best
But waters deep my soul did test
Aching heart within my breast

Lifeguard

Waves of anger crashing in
I heard Him speak, “But do not sin.
This is a war you cannot win.”

Lifeguard

Why did He not just pull me out?
I shook my fist and tried to shout
Again, a wave with foam of doubt

Lifeguard

All at once the fight was gone
Sinking deep, I’d played the pawn
But what was this I’d landed on?

Lifeguard

With all the fight now gone from me
I’d found the bottom of life’s sea
And there a treasure that is free

Lifeguard

With gasping breath, I drank the air
Now of His Presence full aware
Wrapped there in His Loving care

Lifeguard

Though often fools we blindly leap
Into life’s waters perilous deep
Our Lifeguard’s promise He will keep

He is the Guard of Life

Beautifully written - meter is spot on. The message is awesome - the more we struggle, the deeper in we get. When we give up is he saves us.

Very creative! An exceptional piece of work with great rhythm and beautifully written thoughts. (Personally, just one person's opinion - I would have liked to see the word "Lifeguard" with exclamation points...as if shouting perhaps) but I loved it as is! very good...no, it is a Super Job! Kudos!
