…But ask the animals, & they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind. (Bible)
Taken on my recent trip to Florida.
A couple of weeks before this, I had asked God to please show me his love for me. Yes, I needed it.
I don’t think I really ever understood it.
As I stood before the ocean waters, I was finding myself becoming more and more aware of their great vastness and power! … And I was overwhelmed.
I’d been to beaches and oceans before. How come this time my eyes seemed to be opened to something?
Finally the question came to my mind….
“How far can you see?”
My answer? “I can’t Lord….it’s so far.
It just goes on forever”.
“That’s how much”.
That lesson, that love, will stay with me forever. It was beautiful.
