Serenity and crashing sounds
upon the sand, the two are found
fleeing from busy-ness
I lay upon the sand to rest
and simply be- no need to do
I worship at the sight of You
at the wonders of Your living sea-
its sound brings peace, tranquility
O God of wondrous delight
time with You makes all things right!
It seems as if time stands still when I am gazing out into the ocean. I took this picture yesterday as I walked on the boardwalk at the beach. The clouds looked as if the heavens were shining down, radiating off the ocean. It was a most spectacular day!
My friend and I took a short trip to the ocean to get away and relax. It was so beautiful, we could have stayed there all day…hours went by… and for the first time in ages, I did absolutely nothing. I didn’t have my phone. I didn’t think about things I needed to do when I got home, I didn’t do any planning, and did not have a single thought or worry on my mind. Zip. Nada. Nothing. The sounds of the ocean quickly silenced every noise in my head, and I felt nothing but peace.
I am realizing that I need to be more intentional about turning my brain “off”… and more intentional about just being in His presence. Not looking for a message, or a song idea… not looking for what He will teach me or do for me… but just simply spending time worshiping Him for who He is- my wonderful Creator!
For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. Colossians 1:16
Then God said, “Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so. God called the dry land earth and the gathering of the waters He called the seas; and God saw that it was good. – Genesis 1:9-10
