No summer is complete in my book until a trip (or several) to the ocean have taken place. There are few things I love more than digging my feet in the sand and the smell of the salty sea air. I could (and did) spend hours staring at the crashing waves and the bright blue skies. There’s something incredibly calming and healing about it.
I think the thing is that the ocean gives me perspective. It reminds me that it is big and I am small. It reminds me that even though my circumstances can seem huge and overwhelming at times there’s a God who is soooo much bigger. Most of all, it reminds me that I can trust him. No matter what the future holds and no matter what remains unknown, I do know that He is in control.
“You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand”
