Nothing soothes like the sound of gentle waves and the endless view of an ocean’s horizon. Nothing.
Because when I look, I see My Creator.
I see God’s faithfulness in the consistent waves.
His endless provision in the unclaimed depths of the sea.
His wonderful creativity in the beauty of the creatures.
His majestic power in the strength of an untamed ocean.
When I sit and gaze at the ocean, I not only see my Creator, I am reminded of my limits as a created one. When I see a ship passing in the distance or a lazy sailboat slicing through the water, I realize that I can only see a snapshot in time. Someday I will see the whole picture of life—and the whole ocean—as my Heavenly Father does, in all it’s eternal beauty.
And then it will be Him and me sitting on the beach enjoying the view together.
