The beach is a very special place. An outdoor Sanctuary, this natural and uniquely beautiful environment beckons every one of us....often for very different reasons:
Weather-beaten logs rest silently along the edge of the seashore. Sun-bleached and rugged these unpretentious pieces of driftwood have offered a comforting and contemplative seat to many.
I have been seated here.....and prayed
Waves gently dance, somehow cleansing souls from burdens which seem too much to bear. Tears flow, fingers intertwine and hearts begin the journey of healing after a loved one has passed on.
I have shed tears here.....and been soothed
Laughter sings in harmony with rolling pebbles and seashells echo with unforgettable memories.
I have laughed here......and remembered
Decisions gain clarity and tussles are mended as strolls in the sand simplify what has seemed complex.
I have strolled here......and experienced grace
Enduring friendships become more precious with time, like pieces of time-worn seaglass.
I have discovered treasures here.....and shared them
Yes indeed, the beach is a very, very special place and it is here that I have most often experienced God's Power, Grace and Faithfulness. For those who cannot access the beach or the sea, may you experience Him right where you are for His Holy Spirit is all-encompassing......
May you always remember that:
When we need comfort, He is waiting to hold us
When we weep, He washes our tears away.
When we mourn, He reminds us of eternal life.
When joy floods our soul, He rejoices.
When we are uncertain, He brings clarity.
When we feel let down, He shines His Light on the gems in our treasure-chest of friendships.
May you rest in God's care and experience His blessings today.
