Breathe Deep

Walking to the ocean, whipped by the wind and salt and mist.  The closer you get, the more you feel the resistance and push of the wind.  Crossing the top of the dune, you see the angry but beautiful waves.  Covered with sea foam and white caps, with no discernable rhythm to the waves.  Only sheer noise and crashing and power.  God’s power.  You hear Him again, telling you that He is in control, even of a seemingly uncontrollable ocean.  You breathe deeply, the way you’re only able to at the ocean.  The wind almost takes that breath away, but then you feel it.  Relief and peace and clarity.  This world is a gift from the One who loves you, but yet there is so much more than what you can see.  He has made more, and you will be there with Him one day, and that deep breath will go on and on and on.  Slainte, Lisa

  1. Super duper like this! When I was afraid of those same waves beating the African coast, this is what God told me: “the ocean answers to Me not Me to the ocean-you are safe Gay” Similar? yes! Praise be to the God who created it all! Can’t wait to be with Him!!

  2. Where’s the “love” button? Because I need one. I could almost smell the ocean, there. And you are so right…it takes your breath away, that power of God.

    • Thanks, Jeff! I could use an infusion of that ocean this morning, but this yummy coffee I’m drinking will have to do. 🙂

    • Oh, thank you so much for those encouraging words. 🙂 I’ve been going through some hard physical challenges lately, but one thing about that…it keeps you really close and talking to God. And that’s a good thing. Thanks so much for writing today! Blessings, Lisa
