Life Jacket

I feel like


I'm drowning.


Lord, I need you.


Be my life jacket.


Keep me afloat.


Reach into the raging waters


And take me by the hand.


Lord, never let go.


Even if I do


That very same thing


From time to time.


Help me through my trials.


Be my shield.


My strength.


My Father.


My Lord and Savior.


You are the way


The truth


And the light.


And when shadows dim my path,


Be that lantern showing the way back.


Thank You, Lord.


For loving me when I feel unloved.


Even when I fail to love others.


Thank You, Lord.


For being patient with me.


Even when I'm not with You.


Thank You, Lord.


For never giving up on me.


Even when I feel like doing it to You.


Thank You, Lord,


For Your mercy and grace.


Even when I do not deserve it.


You're my life jacket,


Keeping me afloat.


Please don't ever let go.


I know you won't.
