 Like Dolphins
We are all like helpless dolphins
Swept by tidal waves to the shore
In shallow water they cannot swim
They long for freedom once more

Wait, strong arms come to their rescue
Pulling them by the fins into deep water
Soon they begin doing playful tricks too
Inside you are filled with joy and laughter

We were all born into this world as a tiny babe
Totally dependent on loving parents who care
Whether time to be fed, changed, or bathed
Cradling us in their arms we were safe there

Growing up, we skinned knees when we fell
Good as new with band-aids and mom's touch
Sometimes stitches or a cast was needed as well
Trips to the ER we asked why it hurt so much

Spiritually, we are born as sinners along life's journey
Until the Holy Spirit brings us to the foot of the cross
Allowing circumstances to show us our empty depravity
He reveals to us who Jesus is and that we are eternally lost

Then we have a choice to either accept or reject His sacrifice
God gives us a free will but does not want anyone to perish
Like helpless dolphins, only one remedy for sin will suffice
Jesus paid the price for all your sins, none of us deserve this

Think of the greatest Christmas or birthday present you received
Package laced with ribbons and bows sparked your anticipation
That free gift became yours at the very moment it was unwrapped
Both the giver and receiver has their special part in the situation

Jesus shed His blood on the cross so all your sins would be covered
Past, present, and future sins you will ever commit are already forgiven
Our part is to accept His free gift of salvation which Jesus has fully paid
By placing our faith in Jesus alone then He promises us a home in Heaven
