* * * I Thank GOD for the lighthouse * * *

Updated on April 3, 2012

I thank GOD for the lighthouse I owe my life

to thee. I thank God for all the storms He has

brought my ship through, when the waves were

raging and the winds were blowing. I thought

that all hope was gone. When my ship leaned

and touch the ocean’s surface, and my sails were

torn. Oh God I felt like I had lost my way forever

and fear and dismay was all around me. But then

I lifted up my eyes to the hilltop and I saw the lighthouse

shinning right at me. Tears flooded my face for

I knew it was a guide for me to

follow, that I might find my way out of the storm.

LORD I know I couldn’t steer my ship out from

those, boisterous waves that covered me. I

was so battered by the stormy seas……… It

was you that steered my ship right into your safe

harbour. So I thank God for the light house I owe my life

to thee, Jesus is the lighthouse………….. Now I can clearly see.

If it wasn’t for the light house where would my ship be?
