sea

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

I’m at my nephew’s baptism. He speaks with an unfaltering faith. He speaks with conviction and with joy. A boy choosing to keep his eyes above the waves. Choosing to put his hope in God. Making this decision when his feet could have failed, when the waves could have overcome.

And I am challenged. When the glassy sea turns tumultuous, when stress and hard times come, we keep our eyes above the waves, our eyes fixed on Jesus. No matter the storm, no matter the hard times, we can find rest in God.

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now

My nephew was assured and confident that no matter what God’s got this and He’s got him.

He’s got us too.
