Alone…. You and me… by the sea.
The waves rock me and my already unsteady world.
I know You created this ocean,
And I know You created me.
Yet there is so much I just don’t know.
There are many things about my life
That You knew before I was born
That I would never know or understand.
You’re God… Creator of the Universe.
Giver of life.. including mine.
You owe me nothing.
Despite what the world feels entitled to,
And insists I charge You with.
How generous You are
To allow us to think, feel, and exist.
To have this conversation with You
Is a gift of Your kindness.
Here in this sandy bed
The salty water carries my salty tears
Back to the One who created us both.
Uncertain of life’s current weather,
This alone I surely know.
You are Caretaker of all You create.
None other could tend life as You do.
You are aware of all things,
As You are the One who created all things.
The world fits in Your hand,
And I am nestled right inside.
Where will this turbulent sea settle?
I don’t know that it ever will.
Sometimes You break us down
To rebuild us up in faith
That we already thought we had.
But I know the One
Who has walked upon these waves,
Walks with me upon the shore,
And in moments like these
Tarries to abide.
