Just Swim

"If you have been trained to swim,
why would you panic just because
you can't feel the bottom?
It is still there; and you know what to do.
I am right here with you."
The Holy Spirit spoke these words to me
during worship yesterday at church.
We had just been singing "Your Love Never Fails."
And when the oceans rage
I don't have to be afraid
Because I know that You love me...
The wind is strong and the water's deep
But I'm not alone here in these open seas
Cause Your love never fails

I had been declaring my trust in Him,
repenting for the fear that had crept in.
He came to me as a Coach,
and encouraged me to trust the training.
It can be so disconcerting 
to feel the bottom drop out.
And if I didn't know how to swim, 
that could be a big problem.
"The bottom will come back to you,
but until it does, just swim."
He knows what is ahead of me
and has prepared me for victory.
I know that He loves me,
and His love will never fail.
He is a great Trainer.
I am just going to swim until 
I can feel bottom once again.
