Oceans (Where My Feet May Fail)

Lying on the frigid ocean shore, blinded from pain, I can hear the sea creeping closer. As I lay there, naked, helpless, cold and shivering, doubt seeps into the deepest parts of my soul and panic sets in. I can feel the waves licking at my body and my mind enters once again into that place of darkness. I am about to drown. I am going to die. I have nothing left to fight. The icy waters surround my head, swirling all around my hair and rushing into my ears. The waves retreat once again and I feel a numbness that is all too familiar to my heart. My heart… my heart. The waves rush all around my body, lifting it from the sand that once supported my weight. I can feel fragments of the sea, running through my fingers and violently calling me to the sea. “Your heart is broken… you are broken.” It whispers to me. “You are alone… alone.”

Suddenly a feeling of awakening comes over me. Alone? No, I can’t be alone because I am being called into darkness… darkness… which means there must be light… light. Air fills my lungs as the waves leave me once again on the shore. In the gray skies that once blinded me, I see a tiny sliver of light… My heart beats violently as my eyes take in the light, realization setting in. I can hear them, the waves, they are coming back for me. “Oh my God!”, escapes my lungs just as the waters roll fiercely over my body, and tries to consume me once and for all! “No!” My heart screams as my eyes peer at the light through the very liquid that intends to drown me. The light moves closer to me. I can see it shimmering through the waves that pound my helpless body. Feeling comes into everything it touches. Finally, my entire body is covered in water and in light. I feel my body begin to come to life, kicking, swimming, fighting! I am almost to the top. I can see the light shining above me and can feel the darkness pulling to keep me down. My fingers exit the waters first, my breath begging for release. As my face rises above the waters, only one name lays on my tongue and lips. Only One could shine such a Light… “Jesus!” I cry out! “Jesus!”

… Lying on the frigid ocean shore, I hear the waves of the sea in the distance. I hear my breath entering and exiting my lungs. I am alive… Thank God, I am alive! Rising to my feet, I look upon the ocean waters. The ocean seems so far away now. Fierce, powerful, and dangerous, but never as great as the light that controls it’s tides.

Peace and love to all who have been consumed and have seen The Light just in time. Light and Love to those of you who are still drowning. Jesus is the Name. Jesus.
