~The Ocean Series~Through the Waters

 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…..

What is it about the ocean?psalms-97_1

There is something about the ocean that I simply cannot explain. I love to sit on a beach and simply stare out into the ocean. The waves lap up against the shore in a delicate calming rhythm.  Or they might be crashing upon the shoreline with glorious fury. The water might sparkle or it might look grey and ominous. The sounds are that of seagulls and birds or it is dawn and you hear virtually nothing. Continue reading

Just Breathe

Inhale, exhale. Slowly…count to ten.

This past Thursday I found myself dealing with asthma issues. I really had not had any trouble since October of last year and was hoping I had finally “outgrown” this stuff. But I was diagnosed at 35 years of age, so maybe it is too late to “outgrow” it. But I was hopeful. Continue reading
