All in the same boat

All In the Same Boat

by Maurie Nord

In a world of trials stresses, and sorrows
we know that we are never alone
we are all in the same boat
those of us with even the slightest human dignity
who would rather bless than blast
unless forced for this freedom to row
we fight at last still
we are always looking for the comfort zone
and who can blame us?
certainly not the Lord Himself
for the Lord is our Shepherd
He encourages to lie down in green pastures
where are those pastures?
they are in His heart
and resting there we shall not want
and yes though we walk through
the valley of the shadow of death
we shall fear no evil
for the Lord is with us
His rod of correction and His shepherd’s staff
comforts us with this knowledge and it is good
that as one wise one framed it
we who are in the same boat know
that the universe is unfolding as it should

green pastures
