Treasure Island

Loyd C. Taylor


Just Let Go Of The Oar


Churned in the midst of the ocean wild;
Frightened at sea like a wayward child;
Hopelessly alone, my fears did soar;
I cried out to God for help once more.
Through prayer, I beat on Heaven's door.
The heavens shook; the thunder did roar.
In a still, small voice God spoke once more,
'O child of mine, just let go the oar! '

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Through various means, the Lord brought me the inspiration for this poem: the great old hymn 'Love Lifted Me'; the Bible story of the disciples rowing fearfully in a storm until Christ appeared to them and said, 'Peace, be still' (Mark 4: 39) : and various media productions. However, much of the inspiration also comes from 'Let Go of the Oars, ' a poem written in 2001, by good friend and fellow author, Lois J. Funk. I am thankful for all of the wonderful resources that helped me to share my poem with you. I hope you are blessed by it.
