I saw in a gift shop
He makes me anchor in calm harbors,
He leads me beside quiet waters; He restores my soul.
He guides me on a course of righteousness for his name's sake.
Even though I sail through the troughs of the storms of death,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
Your sun and moon they comfort me.
You provide food from the sea in the presence of sharks and barracuda.
You rinse me with sparkling rain; my tank overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,
and I will sail in the ship of the Lord forever.
Do you ever feel far from God's love? Or that life is swamping your deck? Know
that God's love is deeper than any weights you may have aboard.
Thank You, Lord, that even when the wind has left my sails limp, I can count on
your love to bring a fresh breeze.
