I strive and strive to reach safe harbor, where calm waters and gentle breezes proclaim your grace. Here in this protected cove, I feel your safety.
But you are equally within me as you are around me, Lord. You are the forest glade, and you are my inner small voice. I take you with me.
I walk, today, through storms and wind, through dense brush and along sharp crags. My beloved safe harbor is many days’ march away.
You are with me, Lord. I bring the calm waters already along this journey; I need not wait. In the chaos, you also supply me with my own oasis. Open my eyes to see the peace I already have.
Thy will be done.
