God, I am swimming in this barren sea without a lighthouse in sight. Keep my head above water. Hold me while I tread in an ocean of pain so deep that I could never touch the bottom. My eyes are searching for land in sight, for a soft place to land, and…for answers that will anchor my soul.
I am drowning in this sea of despair, still yet, I see You. I feel You moving me through the water towards someone or something of significance. You are leading me towards land. Help me, dear Father, to be patient in the journey.
God, I am swimming in this barren sea with only You in sight. Lord, You are my lighthouse, my life-preserver, my anchor, soft place, and the soil to which I will continue my journey.
Father, You keep my head above the water. You relieve the pain that I feel. You lower the tide, soften the blow, and move me in waves of clarity.
God, I am swimming in this barren sea, and You are my lighthouse.

You are not alone. And I don’t mean that God is with you. Obviously you realize this. I mean you are not alone in your uncertainty and frustration. Inpatient, like I, wondering exactly how many more obstacles I must face before anything changes. I understand your struggle and sympathize with your struggle. I do admire your conviction and pray that we both find peace.
Excellent use of imagery. Shows a keen awareness of grace and human effort.
