Save Me (Don’t Let Me Go Under)

During this breath of time, we’re moving in uncharted waters. No one has ever sailed through such a time as this, and whether we like it or not our faith, or lack of, is being revealed to the world. The unknown is challenging our senses, it’s unearthing fears we never knew existed. Those fears are evolving anxiously anyway the wind blows, and they needn’t do that.

We should only worry about what we have control over. The things of life that are beyond our control are what we hand over in faith. I love the vision of Jesus with his hands out. He’s said not to have come with his hands in his pockets but reaching out to us to relieve us of such burdens.

A while back I was in the midst of a deep dive into Psalm 69. As is often the case for me, I was inspired to write and composed a song called Save Me. I’m offering it up today as an answered plea for help and guidance during this unfamiliar season.

There is always hope in the name of Jesus. There is always love in a benevolent God. And there is always faith for the heart that surrenders.

Quicksand underneath me
Swamp water rushing over me
Going down on the count of three
Save me

Bleary-eyed searching for the key
Raspy dry from my endless plea
Darkness surrounding my marquee
Save me

Save me
Don’t let me go under
Save me
O’ God of wonder

O’ heaven and earth praise him
The seas and everything that lives in them
I shout my love and thanks, amen
Saved I am
Saved I am

Staying in touch with your inner child can provided an endless supply of inspiration. It also removes the self made barriers that we tend to build as we mature. The whole world opens up when you allow your creative mind to have its way.

Living with my wife for quite some time now has rubbed off in some pretty creative ways for me. I’m thankful for that and look forward to the inspirations that are yet to come.

This mid-afternoon shadow was out in front of my journey, it was almost daring me to take the next step. So I did! The Shadow Before Me, is an open invitation, it could be the first step of faith or a friendly traveling companion, but most importantly, it’s an opportunity to be creative!

A little filter fun on display to express the passage of time. Life is a series of transitions, that required us to adapt. Here we see a challenge to shift our thoughts from a southern beach community to that of a northern cityscape.
