Being At Sea
One hundred and fifty miles from the shore can seem like a world away. You look around and see nothing but ocean all around you. You hear the waves hit against the boat in such a way that soothes you all the way to the depths of your soul. Then you close you eyes and breathe in smell of salty air. There can be no doubt in your mind Who made all you are seeing. Just to be in the midst of it is such a privilege. Somehow it makes you feel closer to the Creator. Then you really begin to think. This isn't just your Creator. This is also your Savior. The One who made all that you see, is the very same One who asks to live inside of you, be a part of your life, and love you with everything He has. That is enough to take your breath away. It makes you stop and think, "Who am I, that the God of the universe desires me? He seeks after me and loves me? And all He is waiting for is me to say 'Yes'". In the world's eyes I am nothing special. We are nothing special. However in God's eyes, we are loved. We are cherished. We are His, and He is ours. Won't you say yes?
