The Sea of Trust

It’s Friday and time for another link up with The Gypsy Mama! Five Minute Friday is “a time when we just write for 5 minutes on a specific topic not worrying whether everything is just right.” If you would like to join in CLICK HERE.

Topic: Beyond

God takes us places we never thought were possible.
He takes us places far beyond our dreams.

As I think about this journey
tears fill my eyes and my lip quivers.

I can remember a time in my life when I sat shivering in my boat
My boat, rocking back and forth upon the waves of bad decisions.

Was this all I could hope for? Was this how life was going to be for me? Stuck at sea. Not really living, but simply holding on.

I don’t want this, Lord. I want more. I want You.

I took a chance. I stepped out of my boat of fear and stepped into the sea of trust. I let go.

God takes us places we never thought were possible.
He takes us places far beyond our dreams.

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom
and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out!
~Romans 11:33
And, of course, lyrics from a song came to mind! “I’m Letting Go” by Francesca Battistelli. Click Here to Listen

This is a giant leap of faith
Trusting and trying to embrace
The fear of the unknown
Beyond my comfort zone

    Awesome post, that first step out of the boat and into the crashing waves can be a tough one, but that is where we find those things we never thought possible, beyond our wildest imagination.

    Blessings Eileen.
