Captain of Our Souls

Maranatha Musings

The soul is like a ship in a narrow river which does not have room to turn.  It is always running aground and foundering in the shallows.  But Jesus Christ is in every way sufficient to the vast desires of the soul; in him it has sea-room enough.  In him the soul may spread its sails with no fear of touching bottom.  And thus you see what is the importance of this phrase, “Altogether lovely.”

John Flavel
