I’m treading water – I can sink or swim-
It’s not by choice & certainly not a whim!
My options are limitless every day is new-
Each day I ask myself- what shall I do?
Sometimes it’s the backstroke – yep-backsliding all the way-
Catching up, picking up, cleaning up – what can I say?
Often it’s basic swimming – just doing what’s expected of me-
But it’s hard to get through mirky water – I simply can’t see!
Most often it’s not up to me to decide the day-
Which way I’ll be swimming – by myself or relay!
I pass the baton to my Lord – & He always saves the day!!
