Year 8-Day 207: Today, I am grateful for lessons from the ocean.
"Be like the ocean. Breathtaking to look at, strong enough to not be destroyed, and gentle enough so other find comfort in your presence."
There is a wisdom in nature that reflects our creator.
The oceans show magnificent strength, but submit to the sand when kissing the shore.
The coastline is breathtaking. The scent of the sea and sand evoke a sense of peace and calm. My soul finds contentment. Troubles seem to wash away.
How can something so full of power make us feel so calm and content? He directed the waters to call forth the dry ground.
"Then God said, “Let the waters beneath the sky flow together into one place, so dry ground may appear.” And that is what happened. God called the dry ground “land” and the waters “seas.” And God saw that it was good." -Genesis 1:9-10
When finished, God knew it was good. Very good. Yes, nature reflects His majesty.
Perhaps that is why we find a unique peace and strength at the beach.
Today, I am grateful for lessons from the ocean.
