A Poem of Determination

"I'll Stay in the Ship!"
I will not quit! I CAN endure
The dark storms on life's sea.
I will not steer the ship toward shore:
I'll just wait patiently.
Until the time when I can see
A calm spot up ahead.
I'll trust the Captain of the Ship
And let Him plan instead.
He knows the journey better than I
He knows just how to steer
To keep the ship away from harm
And all the dangers near.
I'll trust in HIm! He knows what's best.
Why! He's traveled here before.
He knows just what should come to pass
To smoothe the storm clouds o'er.
I will not quit! I'll cast my worries
And my cares above.
I'll trust in Him and safely rest
Inside His arm of love.
