Shallow Waters

I say I trust You,
but here I am
with my feet firmly rooted
in shallow waters,
tame enough to kiss the worries
lapping at my heels
away to darker depths.
Yet there’s a calling on the sea,
a voice through the swell saying,
“Come forth, My child,
come here to Me.
I will not let you drown;
My strength is sure for you.”
But I cannot see above the waves
that arise and swallow my view;
my heart tells me it’s safe here
but my spirit’s reaching out for You.
You whisper “just trust Me”
so I can tread into the deep,
where You are waiting
with unseen treasures in Your keep.
You promise there are better things in store,
but how can I immerse in glory
when I cannot bear to leave the shore?
