Lost at Sea (a thank you prayer)

Distressed, disturbed, maligned and grieving,

Tortured and suffering beyond believing;

My goal an ever more distant shore

That I can’t discern with my sight anymore.

Fighting against the surging tide

With all my hopeless and helpless pride;

 Until I prayed;

 And lo, though the shore remains shrouded in time

And satisfaction ultimately may not be mine,

I find myself calm on the stormy sea

When the peace that passes understanding comes from thee.

Though all I desire and long to regain

May never return, you can still soothe my pain

By the presence of you as you answer my prayer

With the calm assurance that I remain in your care.

 Thank you, Lord Jesus.                                    Amen
