SAILING

I got to get My Ship Right…Start sailing up stream far away from those who refuse to dream.

Time to Sail forward and beyond the shores of Yesterday.

I got to fix this ship from top to bottom because the Waters of Life have wrecked many of my Unprepared Ships Before.

Kept them in the dark and in the docks of procrastination while Sailing in circles…

I got to get My Ship Right…Saw too many Shipwrecks that didn’t have to be, didn’t have to float in the Dead Sea of Drugs and Other Deadly vises.

Saw too many Ships float endlessly and aimlessly without emotions or drive, without concern or care fueling their journey.

I saw too many Ships sink in the Waters of Stubbornness, unhappiness, no faith, no goals…no belief in God...

I got to get My Ship Right…Fulfill my purpose, satisfy my own self-worth, teach the people, reach the people and be another voice for the people.

I got to follow My Own Heart, My Own Mind and Trust that God is Ordering My Steps.

I am Sailing on the Riverbanks of Life being fueled by the Sacred Blood of Ancestors, of the Innocent, whose stories Must Be Told Whole...

I got to get my Ship Right and steer myself to the Shores of Tranquility.

Searching High and low for Port Jesus on my journey, where I can rest and bury all of life's stress.

How is Your Ship Doing? What kind of Waters are You Sailing in?

      Very profound and beautiful. If God is ordering your steps, then you are on the right path straight to that port of Jesus no doubt, where you can know of that safe harbor ... Jesus!

      Voted up ++++ and sharing
