I can relate to this, even though I’m not a musician. I have felt and struggled with an image that is similar to this.

There are times that I feel like I’m in a boat and there is an island far off in the distance. I have some rope in my hands that will lead me to the island. At times the water that I’m in is calm and smooth but many times it’s rough and windy. I try to pull on the rope so I can get to the island. There are times that I move closer, but other times when I don’t move at all. I stain and stain but I can’t get to the island.

I have told this to a few friends of mine. It’s an image that shows how I feel with my walk with Christ. (I’m not very good with explaining things in a simpler way.) They have asked me if there was anyone in the boat with me, but I’m alone. They then ask why isn’t Jesus in the boat with me, and why not let Jesus pull the rope for me?

It’s a constant struggle for me. Just letting God take care of it. I’m not sure how to let go. I’m still practicing. 🙂

Sorry this is so long, I just wanted to share what I thought when I read your blog.
