31 Moments in Time :: Jesus my Captain

"Lost in the shallows amidst fear and fog Your truth is the compass that points me back north" ~  Hillsong

East Grand Traverse Bay

I love the water.  I am so blessed to live in an area where I am surrounded by it. Water is healing for the body and soul.  Then He showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God... Revelation 22:1.  When my soul needs refreshing I seek the water and the One where the water comes from.

Sometimes though, I set out on my own course. Taking the helm with my sails fully hoisted, head held high in the breeze and the sun on my face, I forget just who it is that aligns the stars and guides the wind... I think I can navigate on my own. Before long I find my self in shallow waters with rocks all around. Fog surrounds me and I have lost my way.  It is then that I realize on my own I am hopeless and helpless... lost with no way of finding the course on my own and I humbly call on the true Captain to lead me home again.

May this song Captain, by Hillsong United, help remind you to rein in the sails of your wandering heart.
