Sea of Glass

“Also before the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal.” – Revelation 4:6

“…His voice was like the sound of rushing waters.” – Revelation 1:15b

“The seas have lifted up, O Lord, the seas have lifted up their voice; the seas have lifted up their pounding waves. Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea – the Lord on high is mighty.” – Psalm 93:3-4

Thinking this morning about the utter power and strength and breadth of our God. As there is no holding back the power of the sea, there is no holding back the power of God.

And yet, with all that power is great, compassionate, forgiving, eternal love, shown to us by the great gift of His only Son, Jesus Christ.

“He will again have compassion on us;
He will tread our iniquities under foot.
Yes, You will cast all their sins
Into the depths of the sea.” – Micah 7:19

“He reached down from on high and took hold of me;
He drew me out of deep waters.” – Psalm 18:16

Praise God for His mercy. Praise Him for His compassion. Praise God for His love. It is what keeps me going and gives me hope each day.

He is so good. Blessings, Lisa

His Kingdom

“You shall be careful therefore to do as the Lord your God has commanded you. You shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left. You shall walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, that you may live, and that it may go well with you, and that you may live long in the land that you shall possess.” – Deuteronomy 5:32-33


“He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.” – Daniel 2:21

“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be Your name,
 Your kingdom come,
Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.” – Matthew 6:9-10

“Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve…but as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”

Just some verses on my mind this morning. Blessings for a good day, Lisa

Rock,Water, and Wind Things

115

Power of God crashing right up against each other.

The waves, relentless in their pursuit of the shore, rolling, tumbling, crashing.

The rocks, steady, ancient, solid, holding fast.

The wind, roaring, searching, cleansing.

I will fix my mind today on the things that do not, will not, change.  God things.

Love, Lisa

The Sea

DSCN1565

“The sea hath no king but God alone.” ~Dante Gabriel Rossetti

“How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is clearly Ocean.” ~Arthur C. Clarke

“You rule the raging of the sea; when its waves rise, you still them.” ~Psalm 89:9, ESV

Sometimes, when I feel all churned up inside from too much chaos, it helps me to meditate on something much more powerful and strong.  Thinking of the force of the ocean’s waves, its pull back into the depths of the sea, reminds me that God is so, so much stronger than this temporary life.  Life is good, life is a gift, and life returns to Jesus.  He made all things, He controls all things, He is taking care of me.  Nothing else comes close to this.  I can rest, I can trust.  Blessings, Lisa
