THE  OCEAN  WAVES

 

 

Ocean waves of fatigue wash over

Weariness pulls down with a weight

The older, tired body, heavy and drawn out mind;

Simple things to do become difficult

When long ago a light breeze carried the effort

Now, a strong wind seems to come against,

So much thought left to do

While little time a constant drag

Yet the appetite, even desire fades some

And leaves a soul at loss!

What can be done?  What should be done?

How and when!  Where!

“In Him we live and move and have our being.”

The heart truly knows, understands and struggles along

For “To live is Messiah; to die is gain”!

We press on until prayer becomes food and drink

Especially when all seems out of reach,

But prayer to God remains the same

As He always hears and answers,

“In God my salvation and glory rest”.

The eyes in the Spirit look beyond

Hope remains hope in the Living Word

Faith only grows toward our goal-

Salvation the Light of all purpose and meaning;

God’s favor, His caring Hands that touch my life, any life,

Makes every moment, every aging trial and effort

More than worth the price paid,

As strength in life fully laid down

Before Yeshua Messiah’s Cross in death to “Self”;

Resurrection Life the Gift that waits

In the sensitivity of a small child clothed in innocence;

The endless waters become still, mighty ocean waves less so-

“Above the earthly waters, the mighty ocean breakers,

The Lord on high stands Supreme!”
