Another Holy Spirit Sailboat Letter
One of the most powerful exercises in The Journey is the session where we learn about The Holy Spirit in the context of a sailboat. At the end of this exploration, participants write a Letter to God based on what they learned about their sailboat and their prior interactions with the Holy Spirit. Our Champion in Montgomery, AL, Tim Rine, shares a letter (poem) he heard in one of his groups. Be blessed as you read it.
“I cannot control the wind, but I can control the sails.”
This vessel I will call my life….
was destroyed with earthly strife…
ravaged by the worldly waves…
unsure, afraid of all my days.
I turned to God more than twice.
I wasn’t bad, I was more than nice…
asking, praying, Lord, help me!
There were no answers that I could see.
Then the Journey led me to the trail,
learning to better use my sail….
to seek….to find the Spirit’s word.
Now, I see, much more to be heard!
The Holy Spirit was always near….
He comforts, helps and wipes a tear.
He is a part of me! I did not know!
This Spirit, I see, could help me grow!
My part, I find, is to remove my sin…
Let the Godly Spirit enter in….
Lay it all ….at his feet,
And…One day, Heaven’s where we all will meet.
