O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive,
so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.
I don’t know how to glide over the waves on a surf board.
For some reason, when I see someone gracefully traveling along with a giant wall of water, I want to watch.
They must not be afraid to venture out far from the shore or they wouldn’t keep at it time and again.
The life guard is there, sitting atop the tall stand, ready to rescue.
That must surely be a comfort.
Even when they are just sitting on the board or swimming along beside it, there is certainly some trust of available help, should they need it.
There is a popular Christian song that speaks of such a situation, yet in a spiritual sense.
Here is a portion of the lyrics:
And when the oceans rage
I don’t have to be afraid
Because I know that You love me
Your love never fails
The wind is strong and the water’s deep
But I’m not alone in these open seas
Cause Your love never fails
—Your Love Never Fails by Jesus Culture
Even when we are out in the “open seas” of life, caught in strong wind and deep water, God is with us.
We are never alone.
God’s love is unfailing.
