The wave lifts, you feel your board rise, then with a great surge of power, you drop and the force of the great water propels you to shore like a rocket.
That is how it felt to me when I caught a perfect wave. I was never a surfer, but would boogie board for hours at a time in times past.
Confronted with big waves, waves that were taller than me, I had four options:
- Dive under it.
- Jump over it.
- Go back and sit on the shore.
- Get past the break line, and turn and line up for the ride.
Lately, my life is pretty much the big waves. They seem a bit scary, but they are also beautiful. Powerful and alive. I have the same four options. If I can manage past the break line, power through with God’s power, turn and look around me, I will be on top of the wave. His strength will propel me to shore, and what a ride it will be.
Praying God’s power for you today as you paddle past the break line. Love, Lisa
