As we arrived at the beach yesterday and made our way to the ocean, I marveled in it as I always do and just took it in. I began to wonder what God was thinking when he made such an amazing place and these words came to my mind:
God knew we would need a place to go to rest our weary souls. He knew we would need a place to be rejuvenated and to find solace. A place unlike any of His other masterpieces….a place that would make us stand in awe and would only make sense when we come to the realization that is was of His design. God knew we would need something vast and never ending that would echo His love for us. So God created the ocean.
Your steadfast love, O Lord, is as great as all the heavens. Your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds. Your justice is as solid as God’s mountains. Your decisions are as full of wisdom as the oceans are with water. You are concerned for men and animals alike. How precious is your constant love, O God! All humanity takes refuge in the shadow of your wings. (Psalm 36:5-7)
