From Dark to Light

Dear Lord,

Calm the sea in my heart. Help me to walk upon the ocean of my own drowning doubts. Help me to take the step off the boat knowing that you will save me.

I may be blind to everything except the waves, but you will help me to see you through the pounding rain. I don’t know how you will save me, or why you ask me to step onto the sea. But, I just do as you say and hope you’ll reach out to me.

I step and you are straight in my vision. My eyes dart to the waves and my heart crashes with them. My feet falter on the water and begin to descend into the icy water. I feel lost.

But your light overcomes the darkness, and as my head goes under, I see your rippling light. The water becomes hot, warm, full of hope of life instead of cold and dread. You pull me out of my drowning, because you have the power to change any situation from frigid to warm, from dark to light.

“If only you focused on me, loved one,” you say, “you would not have began to sink.”

“I have learned, my God,” I respond, “I will keep my eyes on you, even if I don’t know how to reach you…”

God, with you, all things are possible. I will step into the sea before you part it, knowing that you will create a path. You are my dry land, my miracle.

About Juni Nelson

I have God's signature structure. I'm love life when I can, and struggle with it when I can't. I have flaws, but they're beautiful. I love to write, dream, laugh, meet new people, chocolate, school, learning, traveling, movies, comedy shows, and God. I will make mistakes, more than once, but will be forgiven every time.
