I am here, finally.

It seems like it has been so long, too long, since I have heard the waves crashing against the shore. It is a symphony to my spirit, sweet, sweet music singing over me.

Rest my dear one, for if I can manage this vast ocean I can surely take control of this life you call yours. Did I not create you? Did I not plan your days before nary a one was cast into being? Don't worry my precious one, I have it. All along I have had it, I have told you so. Why don't you know?

There are things I know and things I KNOW. There is a difference.

Book learning is easy. It is the heart and soul learning that I find more difficult. These lessons are harder, at least most of them.

That is why I adore the beach. Even with the pound of the surf and the roar of the waves, I can hear Him speak. Softly, ever so softly, His breath whispers across my soul.

I am left...




There are lessons to be learned here. Ones that shouldn't stay among the waves but ones that should venture back with me on the roads that lead to home. I am waiting Lord.

Show me your glory!

  1. And in that stillness, that's where we know "He is God"...I love the ocean. Every thundering waves point out to His might and power. But the wind that lifts the seagulls' wings, the soft, ocean breeze that kiss my cheeks, the limitless horizon and the skies,the soft glow of the setting sun - those are the things that remind me how really carefully He made everything with His love...
    Your post just made me reflect and bask in His love. God bless and have a great week ahead!

  2. Praying you see His glory soon.

  3. Beautiful. Awesome!

    Oh, yes Lord. Show me Your Glory!

  4. Thanks so much for sharing this. I was touched deeply by the words of the Lord, especially, 'Rest my dear one, for if I can manage this vast ocean I can surely take control of this life you call yours.'
    What liberating truth in that thought, but our lives are in His hands, and we have nothing to fear.

  5. There's just something about being at the beach that draws my heart straight into worship. I totally identify with what you've written.

  6. Your post sooo ministered to my heart. I too love the ocean and find that it is there - basking in the vastness of His creation - pondering the mystery of it all - the ebbs and flows - the crashing waves and gentle stillness that I bask in His love with childlike wonder. Within the ebbs and flow and crashing and stillness seasons of my life, HE IS WITH ME!
    Sweet Blessings!

  7. Denise, what a precious and beautiful sharing with us. May the LORD minister to your heart amongst the ocean waves and nice breeze.

    I love you. May HIS GLORY fill you.
