At the Ocean’s Edge

 

I think we all have a place where we can grasp tightly to the hand of God.   Creation always beckons us to His heart.  For some the mountains may display His majesty but for me it is the ocean.   

Breathing in the salty air and feeling the sand between my toes is one of my most craved for moments.  It is cathartic to a life that so easily carries burdens it was never meant to hold on to.  So, I wait restless and long to stand at the water’s rough edges and feel its cleansing wash over me.

 I am never disappointed. 

 As vast as the ocean lies in the horizon, I am reminded so are His promises for me.  The very same promises I too easily lose sight of in my daily moments. 

 He hasn’t changed at the ocean’s edge.

 I have.

 For I will satisfy the weary soul, and every languishing soul I will replenish.

Jeremiah 31:25

christina - “A life that so easily carries burdens it was never meant to hold on to” – I understand something of that! It is most tempting for me when the burdens relate to legitimate duties and responsibilities. And loved ones.

I’m glad you had your ocean, sunrise, and coffee. Family time away from the routine is a blessing. May He bring to mind His vast promises for your every need in the week ahead.

Stopping by from the Wellspring today.

Melanie - I love the words “we all have a place where we can grasp tightly to the hand of God.” The fall season is often that with me.

Lidia - I Love the mountains, but I love the ocean scenery as well. The wide expanse of blue, the waves, the sandy beach, and the sunrise or sunset. Glad for you, that you have that time of rest and renewal. Oh, I do love sunrise and coffee too!

Have a restful weekend.

Blessings
Lidia
