God's Faithful Servant--The Lonely Wave

"He quieted the wind down to a whisper, put a muzzle on all the big waves. And you were so glad when the storm died down, and He led you safely back to harbor." (Psalm 107:23)

Our vacation was incredible, but being at the beach always is. For it is God in His purest form. The waves speak to me in the rawest form. The air brushes against my face as if speaking a whole new language. The midst of salt air rises from the waves and touch my skin in an amazing newness. Just smell a newborn baby, touch their skin, caress their hair allthewhile close your eyes in this venture. Your senses come alive.

This is what it is like when we allow God to become our senses. When we let Papa embrace the beauty of all He created.

Just call me Mrs. Kodak. I love my pictures. Here is one of the pictures I took while I was on vacation. A little picture of a lonely picture of a wave. But it is a pretty significant picture of a powerful picture. For this picture depicts a beautifully calm sea with one very lone wave with a very large big wave riding its last ride into the shore. What a contrast! For the day before, the seas had been very rough.

As I look at the pictures, I can actually smell the ocean, hear the birds and feel the wind against my face. And I think about the one lonely wave making its wave shore--to his home!

The wave does not think about time. Oh no! He's not on a schedule; he's only on God's time. He's living in eternity. As I watched the wave, I notice how at peace he lives his last moments. As if with all his strength he has, he bellows up and rolls. I hear him. He is a witness to his Savior. He lives out the purpose of his being without question. And as he rolls onto the shore, he surrenders with such peace.

He is "Led safely back to harbor." (Psalm 107:23)

"Well done, good and faithful servant" (Matthew 25:21) as we stand before our Abba.

The lonely wave, the lonely child, the lonely mother, the lonely husband....

Are we any different?

are we really lonely?? (Psalm 23)

5 little hearts from you...:

Welcome back and it is good to see you...... I could almost smell that salt water as you spoke.. There is something very tranquil about the eb and flow of the ocean.... I have swam in oceans around the world and they connect each of us to each other... and are we really lonely? No I think not!!!

You need to come over to Samaritan Women and go to the Pool Party post (about 3 down ) and take a look at my new pool.... then go back up to the top and jump on over to SEW THE WORD and get your name in the pool pot!

And again....Welcome home,..... I have missed you......

I have always felt the presence of God MORE strongly at the beach than ANY other place - any church, any mountain, any ANYwhere ... I always have! I never thought about it in the same terms that you have here... but the POWER and the majesty of the ocean has ALWAYS made me feel the GLORY of God! I'm so glad you're back - and I sure do hope you're "back"!
