As I Sat

As I sat watching the waves crash against the rocks, I could only thing about how great God is.

My husband asked, "What are you thinking about?"
I said, "Nothing."
He said, "How do you think nothing?"
I was silent and only smiled.
He then grabbed my hand and said, "You look the most relaxed I have seen you in a long time ~ Peaceful."
I said, "I am. I'm not thinking about an MRI, C-scans, tests, cancer, school or eating disorders. I am looking at that (pointing to the ocean) knowing that there is a God."

Praise to God

Let us always offer to God our sacrifice of praise.
Hebrews 13:15

You are a great God.

Your character is holy.
Your truth is absolute.
Your strength is unending.
Your discipline is fair....
Your provisions are abundant for our needs.
Your light is adequate for our path.
Your grace is sufficient for our sins....

Your are never early, never late....
You sent your Son in the fullness of time and
will return at the consummation of time.

Your plan is perfect.
Bewildering. Puzzling. Troubling.
But perfect.
