Sometimes we look to the Lord for salvation. Sometimes we plow ahead on our own while the Lord is available and ready to save us.
Today’s mention of the lifesaving stations reminds me of a nautically-themed Christian song that is about realizing our place in the need for saving. It is a ballad, a song that tells a story, sung by the New Gaither Vocal Band, on their 1984 album. I highly recommend your giving it the 5 minutes it takes to listen. It still gives me chills after all these years. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqKMWQu9YaQ I am interested in hearing what others think of it.
Thanks very much, Ellen. I'm going to be remembering that song (which I never heard before) and its message for quite a while.
