Controlling the Flow

November 3, 2008

Facing the sea
Bare but for a swimsuit
Thinking of parallels

The ocean flows
And she ebbs
If I am to find peace in her
I cannot fight the flow

Leading my heart
Taking control of my emotions
Is as taking control of the ocean
Impossible by my power alone

God’s power moves the waves
Each moment of each day
God’s power moves my heart
Each moment of each day

Spirit, connected, one
Holy, perfect Son
Change my heart
As I cannot

I savor your righteousness
I desire your peace
Help me, God
Here and now
