Jimmy's "Safe Harbor"

Do you KNOW?

As the night gave way to daylight
and the pink began to appear
and the stars grew hard to see.
I could see the hand of God
in all His mighty glory.
It was then that I knew
Just whose that I was.

As I went to the stern of the boat
where my men were hard at work.
I saw all the little creepy crawly things
that were caught along with the
things that we wanted.
I saw all the birds, dolphins, sharks
and turtles feeding and enjoying a
free meal as these were pushed over the side.
It was then that I knew
Just whose that I was.

As we finished and were ready to go to bed,
the wind started to blow and
the waves started to grow large.
I lay my head down just not knowing
if when I awoke the sea would be smooth
or the waves would be large?
I spoke these words
"Lord, it is up to you and my eyes fell shut".
It was then that I knew
Just whose that I was.

When hours passed and my eyes opened
and I felt so refreshed.
I walked outside to see how it looked
and I saw a small land bird.
What kind I did not know.
How it found the safety of this haven
so far from land and yet so small.
But there it was, all safe and sound.
It was then that I knew
Just whose that I was.

As the sun was slowly setting into the sea.
It looked as if the water was just slowly eating
the sun in the western sky.
Night was just beginning to come to the eastern sky.
The stars were just starting to show
and the full yellow moon just touched the sea.
It was then that I knew
Just whose that I was.

Written by Jimmy H. Carden

When you have seen just how it all works together
and all the pieces fit so well, there can be no way
that it just happened to be as it is!
When God made this world, He knew that Jimmy
would be out there and He knew that all His little
creatures were going to be there, so He made it
all fit. A part of His plan was for you and I to know
that He is real and if He is real, then His plan is real
also. Now the question…..
Do you know whose you are?

If you don't, then I tell you for sure, you just need
to open your eyes and see around you, please.
And then you will know whose you are!

The way is plain and when you lay your head down
ask Him to take charge and let Him.
His name is …..Jesus.
