Life can be compared to a long journey on a boat.
Your parents are the vehicle that brought you on this journey.
Once you are on the boat, there is no turning back.
Where the boat will land is a mystery to all,
That being called your mission in life.
The trip makes no promises of being smooth all the way.
As low and high waves rock a boat,
There are difficulties in life to overcome.
You will see periods of sunny days,
Followed by stretches of cloudy days.
These are phases of livelihood that you must experience.
If you jump overboard and abandon ship,
You will see everything going wrong in your life.
When you return to your boat, which is your security,
You will experience the peace of a smoother path.
You are given a free will to choose your destiny,
And wisdom to find righteousness in the Lord Jesus.
