*Dedicated to Mike P. and with optimistic hope for a good new year for those who are with, as we watch the Lord deal with those who are without. –Moraldiplomat
“My ship, traveling into the oceans called life,
It carries people; good, bad, beautiful, ugly, poor, rich, young and elder
On our journey sometimes waves come up roaring,
With storms that batter recklessly.
But the walls of my ship are built firmly,
No matter how hard the situation, my Captain maneuvers wisely.
My entire load, I trust to Him to keep it safe.
With His expertise, I need not to worry.
Sometimes the water is calm and sunshine makes my ship glittery, and sometimes the air blows angrily, makes my ship quiver enormously.
Frightening thunder and horrible sharks ready to attack my load mercilessly, but my Captain I trust.
I can sleep well, peacefully.
Onto their destination, they can go victoriously,
Because of my Captain, I truly trust sincerely.
My mother’s favorite verses:
Proverbs 3:5-8 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones. ”
Prov 28:26 “He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.”
“Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.”
