Emerald water sparkles before me as white finger like waves lift up, rolling forward, lapping at the shore spreading gently over the sand. Watching this I wonder how could I possibly have ever not believed in You?
Though I said I didn’t believe, I think I always felt your presence in the beauty and power of the ocean. While I was refusing to see the truth You were always there right in front of me…giving me proof. Showing me, always calling to me, comforting, bringing me peace.
Thankfully I know you now, but still every time I come here I am amazed and in awe of the beauty and the power of your presence. I feel so small and so unworthy of the gift of something so huge. As I gaze out across the waves to that place where the sky meets the water it looks as if they both go on forever… never ending… just like You are… forever…never ending.
As the sun begins to slip down the sky, once again I am amazed by another sunset, so beautiful, so new and so different from the one before.
Give Thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. Psalm 118:1
Father I give you thanks,
