As I sit and admire this sea so vast,
My respect, its waves so loudly demand.
I ponder its contents underneath its blue blanket,
My imagination runs wild in my head.
This world I can’t see that lives underneath this blue
My emotions are many inside,
Amazement and awe of God’s handiwork
With each break of the loud boastful tide.
Fear creeps in as I think of the control
These waves have over my small in comparison frame.
The creatures within that can destroy if they choose
And with them they bringing much pain.
Then I’m reminded of my awesome Savior
Who’s shelter I have in His wings.
My mind may race away with my fears,
Then His love and security He brings.
I no longer fear the strength of the sea
For my Father who loves me designed it.
He knows each piece of sand on the ocean floor,
He purposely handcrafted it’s contents.
His security and shelter is the beach that I relax on
As I gaze out at the ocean top.
For He’s in control when He told the sea,
“This is as far as you come. Here your proud waves must stop”.
