I Want to Trust Him

Waves of white water rush at me.
I feel the urge to retreat.
Instead I stand within the awe
Consuming me of God’s beauty.
The coolness of the water tickles my feet.
My skin receives a refreshment.
The heat has long discomforted me.
Now God’s natural talent
Brings me a special release.
Only God can be so exquisite.
Only God can give such pleasure.
The glory is all His.
And I love Him for every bit of it.
Earth’s treasures lies in the hand of God
And He so lovingly shares them with us.
If only we would stand up to our fear and trust Him.
Many times life will seem so overwhelming,
And we will want to run.
But if we stand and trust a God who loves us,
He will give us heavenly joy.
I want to trust Him.
