Hold me

I need Your comfort and Your peace

Assure me 

That there’s more than I can see

Remind me 

Nothing is ever beyond Your reach

Show me 

Lord, help me to believe

And when the waters rise 

I know You’re in those tides 

I can trust that You still care 

And that You have me in your sights

And when the wind begins to roar

I KNOW there’s still much more

Waves can all be calmed 

And we can make it to that shore.

Let’s Go Across the Lake

Sometimes when you read the same Scripture you see something new. I love this! This time I noticed Jesus words “Let’s go across the lake.” The word “across”—much like the cross itself—has an assurance of finality. Jesus finished the job on the cross. He conquered sin and death. He’s not going to leave us in the wind and waves. He will see us to the other side.

God either calms the storm or He calms His child. Sometimes He does both. With the Lord’s help those who take Jesus into their hearts are given the gift of the Holy Spirit. He is our guide and our promise that we are safe in God’s hands. ❤

“That evening, Jesus said to his followers, “Let’s go across the lake.”  Leaving the crowd behind, they took Him in the boat just as He was. There were also other boats with them. A very strong wind came up on the lake. The waves came over the sides and into the boat so that it was already full of water. Jesus was at the back of the boat, sleeping with His head on a cushion. His followers woke Him and said, “Teacher, don’t you care that we are drowning!?”

Mark 4:35-38

Jesus Cares

Jesus stood up and commanded the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind stopped, and it became completely calm.

Mark 4:39

“My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of Him who sent me and to finish His work.

John 4:34

“He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.

1 Thessalonians 5:24

  1. Beautiful poem and I love the revelations you shared. What an amazing truth it is to know that Jesus cares for us and will not let us drown. This brought me comfort and peace as I read it. Thank you for sharing, my friend!


  2. God will strengthen us, help us and uphold us. He will guide us through life storms to the safe shore. Love your poem, Tina! 💗🌟🌼🌺


  3. Beautifully written, Tina. You have expressed much in the poem that describes a place where we have all been at one time or other in our lives. But with Him all is well even though the waves are crashing around us and things look bleak. He will always hold on to us and bring us out onto solid ground once again and we will see the sunshine and blue sky.


    1. Thank you so much Diane. That was so beautifully put. It’s nice to have you pop in for a visit. The Lord WILL always hold onto us and bring us out onto solid ground again. He made both gray skies and blue skies. Each serve their purpose and the sunshine does comes around again. ❤

  4. This reminded me of the saying “Having God in your boat doesn’t mean that you’ll not face any storms. It means that no storm can sink your boat. Walk in faith and you will never be alone.” This was a perfect song for your post. I enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing. ❤


    1. I was so caught up with the song I forgot to mention your poem. So beautifully written. You have a wonderfully unique way of expressing yourself in your poem.

    2. That’s a great saying. I almost wrote something about having God in our boat into my post then changed the wording for some reason. Perhaps I was leaving room for your comment. It really is such a perfect song isn’t it? To God be the glory. He is the great coordinator. We just follow His lead. ❤

  5. I haven’t been on the computer a lot over the past few months and now I am so backed up with e-mail that I just have to delete a lot. But I do want to keep up a bit with some of the blogs I follow, including yours.


  6. I haven’t posted on my blog for several months now. Since November I have been dealing with bedbugs, probably brought in by a maintenance man around that time. I think they are gone, but you get a little paranoid and I don’t want to take any chances, so am still living with much of my stuff in plastic bags stacked up in my dining area. This week I have been finally putting some things back where they belong, especially my hundreds of books. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy (though I don’t know if I even have any enemies!). But I do have lots of posts on my blog up until that time, so I would welcome your visits. God bless you.


    1. Oh wow. I’m sorry Diane. That is quite the ordeal. Yes, I understand the paranoia. When we had a problem with mold I ended up having to throw so much out to be sure that our living environment was healthy. It’s such a disruption and so much work when these unexpected things come up. Its no fun living in that disarray either. I so hope and pray they are gone for good now.

      We had ants a while back. I saw a few a while ago (once again) and got on top of it quickly. I haven’t seen any since thankfully.

      It would be my pleasure to visit your blog. God bless you too.
