Like A Wave Of The Sea

Rating: 4.4
Like a wave of the sea
Is a man without faith;
He doubts the might of God,
He doesn't firmly wait.

A wave of the ocean
Is pushed by wind and tossed;
A double minded man
Makes all his goals get lost.

Climb up the highest hill,
And cross the deepest sea,
Yes, brave the strongest storm,
Hope for the great glory.

Ask the Lord faithfully,
Neither wane nor waver;
Pray to God with full trust
For fine and warm weather.

Believe in the promise
Of one God Almighty;
For the one who frets is
Like a wave of the sea.
Bernard F. Asuncion

A man without faith in God is always shaken by even the slightest adversities of life as waves of the sea are ever tossed by the wind! If we trust in God's promises, man is able to fill his heart with positive thoughts! Quite an edifying poem.....!

A lovely poem! Truly said. Hesitation is like a wave: can spread you everywhere, but won't let you grab and hold anything nor walk safely upon.

A fine, subtle analogy between a man without faith and a wave on the ocean. Your poem confirms for me that it is better to live with faith in God than without any belief. There is still a need to 'firmly wait'.
