Blue Galilee
Bright sea,
whose sleepy depths
He more than knew,
whose raging heights
He overthrew,
where triumphantly He walked,
upon whom lovingly, He gazed—
I am like you.
He walks beside me like a friend,
just as His feet impressed the sand
along your breezy shore,
just as he stood and walked the waves
so far above your watery floor.
Great sea,
On wind-tossed Galilee,
my raging storms
He also stills.
Oh gentle sea,
blue Galilee,
my depths He knows,
my soul He fills.

   --Gay Grimes

May you be blessed this week as you discover the comfort, help and strength that God has given you to bear the trials you will face.
