A wonderful devotion. I liked the clear application of the canoe trip with our Lord and "stepping into His boat." This flowed well and your message came across with strength. Nice job!

Loved the ending: Every day I choose His boat, His way, His life. Well written and a great devotional! God bless!
I enjoyed this very much. Nice writing and a truth that I could relate to!
Oh I so love this. It is a perfect definition of a devotion. You have a verse to meditate on. Then a real life story that many can relate to or at least imagine it. Lastly you took what you learned and applied what the Bible says. The only thing I'd add is a prayer. Wonderful writing!
A wonderful analogy, and beautifully written. I loved the sentence "The dampness had crawled into my coat and made itself at home." - I could immediately both picture and feel exactly what you meant!

An excellent devotional! Let us all choose Jesus as the captain of our salvation and Lord of our lives.

Great analogy, showing how easily we can get caught in predicaments when we try to steer our own faith canoe!

My only comment is regarding the semi-colon in the second paragraph. I'm not a semi-colon expert, but I do like them (some people actually hate them--imagine!), but here, I'm not so sure...

Anyway, great devotional, loved the story, and your descriptive phrasing.

Congratulations for placing 10th in level 3!
