Rudder

Or take ships as an example.

Although they are so large and are driven

by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder

wherever the pilot wants to go. -James 3:4

 

The Ship’s Anchor snapped,

and he had nothing to tie him

to the earth anymore.

 

The Sail and the Oar

both had their days

but he would have lost his way

if not for the Rudder.

 

He was thrown by storms,

and many nights were rife with uncertainty

but did not stray from his course.

Only because of the Rudder.

 

The Rudder, which steered him straight,

prevented him from going

where his boughs would be dashed against rocks.

 

The conscience of his consciousness

in a seeming endless stormy sea,

the Rudder was his Savior.
