Reflection

Lord,

You are the wind in my sails.

You guide me as I steer and find direction.

You give me the strength to keep on going.

You watch over me as I navigate stormy seas.

You are the harbour where I stop for rest.

You are my encourager when I lose hope.

You are the lighthouse that keeps my path

safe.

You are with me always.

Thank You,

Amen.
