Praise the Lord you are here to tell your stories! I held my breath a few times until I read far enough on to take a deep breath with you.

Amen. This was very good discription of your feelings about the beach, but it would have been easier on the eye if you had separated the paragraphs for us. God bless, littlelight

As another non-swimmer, this really hit home for me. I used to not mind playing in a pool, in an innertube, wading around, etc. But, after one of my cousins (in their backyard pool) didn't listen when I told him I didn't like going underwater, he dunked me. I panicked, and ended up pushing the wall of the pool enough in trying to get out, that I let all the water flood the yard. It's been a VERY long time since I ventured into water, beyond sticking my feet in it. It's good to be reminded that God is always there with us.
You've drawn a nice analogy here: "Eventually I began to compare the power of water to overcome my life with the power of sin to overcome my soul." I do hope you can overcome the past and someday even enjoy swimming....it is one of my greatest pleasures!
Your writing is very touching. It would be more intriguing if written as a story with conversation. Thank God that you understand that there is a purpose for your life. We all have a God given purpose. Blessings
