Spiritual Paradox - Poem by Ginny Alloway Baker

It has always been
a paradox to me
that one could die of thirst
adrift in the mighty sea
oceans of water all around
plenty to swim in
plenty to drown
not the right water
the body to save.
drinking wrong water
invites the grave.

There's amazing similarity
to the sea of spirituality
vast realms of spiritual power
all bidding in this hour.
Many waves you can ride
One is safe to abide.
Swim in the ocean of mystery
a high price to afford
your souls rest throughout eternity
is only in the Lord.
Every other spirit
may be easy to find
just like salty water
not the life giving kind.
If you are thirsty
for spiritual truth
Jesus is the answer
there is no substitute.
