Step out of the ease in Comfort

“Believing Your Words

my heart hears You say.

‘Step out of the comfort

and ease in the boat.

Place one foot down,

and try not to look.

Keep your eyes on

My hand


NOT on the land.

There’s fear

either way;

keep looking

My Way.

I know your

heart’s pounding;

that’s normal too.


Your safe here on water.

I’ve got Firm hold

Of you!’’

poem by denisebalog

“But his bow remained in


And the arms of his hands

Were made strong

By the hands of the Mighty

God of Jacob

(From there is the Shepherd,

The Stone of Israel),

By the God of your father

Who will help you,

And by the Almighty

Who will bless you

With blessings of

Heaven above,

Blessings of the deep

That lies beneath…

Up to the utmost bound

Of the everlasting hills.”

Genesis 49:24-26 (NKJV)

    1. Thank you Barb for the award. I truly appreciate your kindness:) I am not comfortable in participating in “Awards” for if anything I may have written has touched your heart of His Grace and love, it truly is of Him and not me. On my own, my pencil and words stumble and fall to the ground. All glory and Grace “Award” goes to Jesus Who loves us:) Thank you again, I pray I have not offended you by not participating. I appreciate your interest and enjoy your comments. I love being your neighbor in our Blogging world. blessings friend, d


    1. I was in WAY over my head teaching children. I would “ask” Him every week for a lesson, and He provided the fruit:) Amazed and taught me every time I asked! Jesus SO Faithful.. Blessings friend:) d
