Stormy Seas


Anyone can steer when the seas are calm

And I pray your days filled with breezes just

But when the gales begin to fill your sails

Is when we find what is best in us


When whitecaps wrinkle the glassine surface

And strong winds blow against our lives

We must find the strength of right purpose

And work to determine what survives


Tossed and turned through a sleepless night

Plagued by the storms without warning

We must hold the helm ever so tight

If we hope to see the next morning


Set your eyes upon the horizon far

And lash yourself to the sturdy rail

Find the power of who you surely are

For you were always meant to sail

    This hit my heart. I’m listening to storms outside and navigating my own personal storm. I’m positively positioning myself. 🙏🏻💪🏻🥰💛🤗

    This is a beautiful reminder, my friend! We might not be able to control the storms, but we are the captain of our own ships! Bravo!!

    A metaphor for life. It’s easy to be upbeat when everything is going well, but do we have the same tenacity when facing adversity?

  4. I am lashed to a sturdy rail, wishing the Boy Scouts taught me more about sturdy knots!
