Remember your growing-up years and the good old swimming days?
You used an inner tube or floated amidst the water sprays.
Jesus can help you through rough waters–think of floating your cares on Him;
He’s your heavenly life preserver–you’ll not sink but peacefully swim.
Don’t let go of Him or panic if the “waters” look too deep–
If you truly cast your cares on Him, you’ll find He gives you blessed sleep.
P. A. Oltrogge
