More reflections from my quiet time on a sandy shore…
Lord, You alone search me!
You alone know me better than anyone!
You alone know every move that I make, you understand all of my thoughts…and still You love me and tell me You’ll never leave me! What an ocean of Great Love and Grace.
You know the words that I speak before I speak them…and You give me grace, because there are so many spoken and unspoken that do not please You. Help me!! Let my thoughts be pleasing to You, let my ways be only seeking Your ways.
Make me more like You.
“O LORD, You have searched me and known me.
You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
You understand my thought from afar.
You scrutinize my path and my lying down,
And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.
Even before there is a word on my tongue,
Behold, O LORD, You know it all.”
I stand on the shore of Your vast ocean…the depth of it I do not know…stretching farther than I can see…and it all reflects its Creator…
His vast unfailing love for me…
His depths unsearchable…
His ways unfathomable.
My feet in sand sink deeper as each wave rolls over…
…and I sink deeper into Your love as each wave of grace rolls over.
Waves rolling in steady, like You...
constant, like You…
beautiful, like You.
“Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!”
“Your unfailing love, O LORD, is as vast as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.”
Father…thank You for Your ocean of grace that I daily swim in! Thank You for Your vast love that is unfailing. Thank You for giving glimpses of Your glory here, on earth, in Your creation. Such beauty here reminds me of Your even greater beauty that one day I will see! Until that day, make me more like You, fill me to overflowing with Your grace and love so it spills out of me!! In the beautiful name of Jesus, Name above all names, Amen.
“Let the Word of Christ richly dwell within you…”
