Encouragement for Today~In today's world of swirling circumstances, we need to be reminded of how much we are loved by God.

~The Ocean Series~Through the Waters

Leave a comment

 I looked upon the waters.

I do not deny that being on the beach listening to the ocean waves hit the shore has always brought me peace. I could literally sit there for days. And days.

But I have discovered something. Over the last couple of years we have visited many of the beautiful locations in our area.  As I glance through the pictures I have taken, I have discovered….being near a body of water evidently brings peace to my soul.

I know that scripture refers to “living water” many times over and that the Bible is full of images that have water symbolizing new life, fulfillment of the promises of God and cleansing.

Even the psalmist said in Psalm 23….”The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside still waters”……

I know that this may all seem very simple and elementary…but right now that is maybe what we need. Simple and Elementary

The Father’s peace. We all want it…and how precious of Him to allow us our own personal ways of access.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

I do not know what you are battling on a personal level. You might be disappointed in someone, dealing with a sick loved one, or even sickness yourself; whatever you are dealing with…please know that God’s peace is for you. He will remind you in the most personal ways….

It might even be through the waters…..

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 57 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer, part time office manager, part time writer... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 41 years, married 38 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we are going to become grandparents to a baby girl in August!! First time grandparents and we are over the moon! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~
