Sea

What if I told you that I don’t have it figured out?

Because I don’t.

Sometimes I give that impression in real life I think, that I’ve got my big girl pants on and am rocking at life.  

But sometimes I feel like I’m flaying around like a non-swimmer who floated into the deep end by accident.  You get the imagery.

 

But I do trust.

I trust God.

He promises to begin the good work He has begun in me.  He finishes what He starts.

He promises to work out all things for good because I love Him and because He has a plan.

He promises to shape my character, to refine, to transform.

Sometimes the flaying around is me searching for solid ground, for a constant in the mess.  But God is saying float into the deep, learn to swim.  Trust.

 

The Hillsong United song OCEANS says it like this: 

You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

 

In all things He is with me.  

At all times He is at work.

He has a dream.  He is the dream giver and the dream fullfiller.

So I float.  

Not having it all together, but trusting in the One who is all together wonderful and wise.

Not being wise in myself, but trusting in the One who created the universe and breathed the stars out.

I don’t have it figured out.  

But that’s okay.

I won’t sink. 

I will walk upon the water.
