A Choppy Sea Ahead
I see a choppy sea ahead
Where breakers toss and roll
With waves that reach above my head
Each crashing on my soul.
I feel so small, so very weak –
They overwhelm my heart;
But then the Rock of strength I seek
Which can’t be torn apart.
That Rock of strength and love and grace,
That Rock that’s always there
Stands strong for me – a hiding place,
A refuge found in prayer.
There I’m restored with strength of soul,
With courage, faith, and love;
It gives me light and makes me whole
With hope from God above.
So though the storms may rage beyond
I have no lasting fear –
In faith and hope I can respond
For Christ is always near.
Christina Joy Hommes
“From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” Psalm 61:2
