Word-Filled Wednesday!

Psalms 95:5 The sea is His, for He made it;
And His hands formed the dry land.

This is the Atlantic Ocean. We live right across the street from it on a barrier island.
And as many times as we've been to the beach I am still in awe of how vast the ocean is. As far as the eye can see is nothing but water. And if you've ever had the "pleasure" of viewing this same ocean during a hurricane, it can be a bit daunting.

If you ever want to feel small, stand in front of it.
And if you ever want to feel smaller, look at an aerial map and see that your home is basically sitting on a toothpick right next to it. Talk about having to put your trust in Him.

To comprehend the fact that our God MADE this, is sometimes beyond comprehension.
The cool thing, is that this same God loves US. Can you believe that? Have you thought about that today?

Love you my friends.

  1. Good morning Kim!

    This was beautiful, and I enjoyed your thoughts to go with it.

    Been missing you! I need to get back here this Friday~

  2. How amazing that He loves me! He knows the number of hairs on my head - gray or not. :D Great verse and pic to go with!

  3. What a wonderful post to read first thing in the morning.


  4. Beautiful. I miss the ocean. I was born and raised on Long Island, right outside of NYC and spent most of my 20's there. I too, was ALWAYS in awe of the ocean and always wondered how people could look at something so amazing and not believe in the Lord.
    Now I am a few hours away but have the mountains to look at... and still get that same feeling. Although nothing compares to the ocean. ENJOY it for me

  5. That's always been my favorite part of going to the beach...thinking of the awesomeness in God's hand at His creation! wow.

  6. You know I love and miss the ocean, so thanks for making my day with this great photo.

    And, I'm with you, just watching the ocean (even when there's not a hurricane) will bring an awareness of God's awesome power.

    Have a wonderful day.


  7. Oh Kim,
    To see that awesome wonder across the street each day..wow! It's got to just amaze you over and over again! Having been on the water...out in the middle of the ocean, the vastness never ceases to take my breath away!

    Peace to you!

  8. I just love the water! I feel at such peace there!!
    Beautiful devotional, my friend!!

    Love you!!

  9. BEautiful picture and scripture. It is huge and hard to comprehend how very big it is.

  10. Oh my...I'm turning a bit green that you live across the street from the ocean...I'll try not to envy...

    What a beautiful reminder - isn't that so true? We are so small and yet He loves us so much. Little old us...

    I just want to jump into that ocean right now - it's going to be 95 degrees here today!

  11. I love the ocean, we are going in August. My favorite is to sit and soak in His presence, it is so amazing!!

    Love and Blessings

  12. I too love the ocean Kim. Every time I see the waves crash on the shore, I'm reminded of how awesome our Creator really is.

    Hugs to you,

  13. Thanks for sharing the lovely photo and scripture.

  14. Wow...you live on a barrier island? Sounds wonderful to me!

    Beautiful pic and great scripture...AMEN!

  15. The ocean is a beautiful place to be. When on a cruise with no land in sight, it seems endless - reminding me of God's endless love for His children.

  16. Lovely my friend and oh so very true! I love how the ocean makes you feel like that. We felt like that too when we saw the Grand Canyon - quite amazing.

  17. A beautiful picture and verse ~

  19. When I think of how big the universe is, it really puts into perspective how small we are.
