It roars and beckons. It is always in motion, constantly pushing and pulling…even in the distance where the waves are not forming it is moving.
As I sit at the water’s edge, the sea calls to me.
There is something incredibly peaceful about watching the waves crash into the shore line. Hearing the song that they make over and over again.
“Oceans” has been a favorite song of mine since I heard it a few years ago for the first time at Allume. “You call me out unto the waters, the great unknown where feet may fail..”
Standing on the sand, watching the water roll in around me, I can feel the shifting beneath my toes. As the water pulls back out my footing becomes unsure…my feet may fail.
“And there I find you in the mystery, in oceans deep my faith will stand.” The sea is a mystery, its never ending movement, the fact that the water seems to know where to stop.
As I sit and watch it I am overcome by the presence of a God that not only controls the waters and the tides, but also formed me in His image and loves me.
What a mystery Lord….
“I will call upon your name, and keep my eyes above the waves….I am yours and you are mine.”
I call out to Him, I have sought him and He has made His presence known. Always with me, always surrounding me…He is mine and I am His.
The sea reminds me of God’s mighty power and beautiful creation but also is a reflection of my faith. God calls us out to unsure seas and asks if we trust Him.
Sometimes we step out onto the water and walk towards Him. And at times I fumble and fear overwhelms and I start to sink…but He is there, holding out His hand for me.
Seek Me and you will find Me.
I am yours Lord, I am yours.
