"Trust in the Lord with all thy heart."
- Proverbs 3:5
One of my nicest memories that keeps me coming back to see the sea is a time when I saw some big, gun-metal gray clouds over my favorite bayfront. One huge cloud had a beautiful silver lining.
As I listened to the sounds of the palm leaves rustling in the breeze and the singing songs of seagulls, I stopped for a moment to praise my God.
As I heard the waves wash upon the shore, I watched my cork playfully bob awhile.
I never have to wait and see if God is at the beach. I know He is. I met Him there too many times to doubt His presence. That is called, "trust in the Lord."
Dear Lord, someone asked me the other day if I get to go to the beach as much as I like. I told them that my goal in life is to serve You, not just be a full-time beach bum. I will meet You at the cove to replenish my soul.
