Have you ever been 
Caught in a trap - my friend ?
Where the billows are raging around 
And  you felt you were slipping
Into  the deep -  and your
Feet  were losing
Their ground ?

Or - were  you  in 
Over your head - my friend 
And  the bills  were  building  up - in a
Pile ? - but  the pennies  were few
And  the banks  were closed
And  -  you'd  lost  your
Joy - along with your
Cheerful smile ?

Well - let me tell you
About my - Friend - my friends 
The One who knows - all of my ways - yes
The good paths - the tough ones - 
And all in between - and the
Best - and the worst of
My days . 

He is the One who
Knows - when we go through 
The storms of this world - and the hardships
On land - and the sea - but - He speaks 
One word of command - and then - 
All is stilled - and His peace -
Then surrounds you
And me . 

So - be  encouraged my
Friends - even when we are caught
In  the powerful waves - that threaten to drown
And destroy - for - we  have a Lifeguard
Who can walk on the water - and 
Bring  our  weak - mortal
Frames - safely
To  shore .

So - do not despair my
Friends - but  trust - in the One 
Who is Saviour and LORD - for He will walk
On the waves - to  reach us - when we
Call on His name - and we trust 
His - all powerful
Word .

Amen .. All praise - to our wonderful GOD .


Recently I heard a sermon with the 
title  of my latest poem in it .. and it
sounded so reassuring to me .. that
I felt led to use it as the theme of 
this poem . 

How wonderful to know that Jesus
walked on the Sea  of Galilee .. two
thousand years ago .. and He would
do the same for us today .. if we were
drowning in the circumstances of 
life .. just to rescue us .

What a Saviour .. !

What a Life Guard indeed ! 
and His name is Jesus .

Many blessings
to you all
