28 Days of Prayer-Poems for Faith, Spiritual Growth & Life
Welcome! This is my 3rd post for the “28 Days Write” challenge where I will write throughout this February. Each post is from an assigned keyword, and today’s word is “Raft”. Enjoy my new prayer-poem “My Little Raft is in God’s Hands”!
When you feel like life has you stranded out on a raft, and the loneliness engulfs you remember your raft is in God's hands.
Your Raft Is In God’s Hands
Sometimes I feel stranded out on a raft
where the seas are only bouncing and drifting softly
But then suddenly a turmoil of angry waves are tossing, turning, spraying
Holding on tight, I look into the night sky
Only lit by multitudes of galaxies
Overwhelming is the magnitude
and beauty of the heavens
But then there is the revelation
that the one who made the celestial sphere,
the stars, and all, made me
I am calmed when I think of my heavenly Father
Feeling love wash over and through me
And I know I am not alone
A raft can be like our journey of life
Taking us here, there
But when the raft belongs to God
The raft will be with God no matter the storm
Imagine that – my raft is in God’s hand
I am so thankful for this little raft of mine
For it is floating in God’s ocean, under His firmament
Oh, Jesus, you are my guiding light bright in my heart
My anchor, my protector, Oh Savior
Thank you for calming us when the storms rage
Thank you for blessing us with all we need
Mostly for You being with me
Though day in and day out
I am sea-worthy because of You
I am weak but strong because of You
Oh, send Your soft winds to soothe distressed bones
By day a rainbow in the sky, by night a shooting start
to remind us that You are near
Comfort any lonely hearts
Who may feel stranded or forgotten
Bring blessings of good tiding of joy
To let us know that we are never forgotten
When you feel like life has you stranded out on a raft, and the loneliness engulfs you look no farther than to the Creator who guides, steers, and protects.
