God Rescued Me

I was thinking this morning of walking along a beach, the sand loose and warm under my bare feet, the sun shining bright, the waves sparkling by my side, the path ahead seemed so clear in front of me.

But as I walked along, the wind began to blow, gently at first, blowing gently by my face, but the further I walked along, the stronger it became - I had to lean into it and slow down my pace.

The wind picked up the sand and flung it at me, no longer a warm and gentle carpet under my feet, now each grain became a weapon in the hands of an unseen enemy.

I squinted my eyes nearly shut, put my hands out in front of me, hoping to find someplace to rest, the walk I had embarked on was no longer a pleasant stroll, it was a battle, getting the best of me.

I peered ahead and dimly saw a shape ahead in the sand, and I knew there would be protection by it if only I could get there, and I wondered in my mind how I could have missed seeing it before, a rock that large should have been visible for miles.

No matter, I thought, just get there, and when I did, I just sank down on my knees, leaning my back against that solid rock, somehow I knew this refuge was there just for me.... I rested for hours, savoring the silence and the quiet surrounding me, then a small voice seemed to be telling me to turn around, to change direction, to see what the future might be.

I turned and looked, and I was amazed to see that the wind I'd been fighting all this time, was now smoothing the way, brushing the sand to the side, as long as I kept that rock directly behind me.

I suddenly realized that rock was God, He'd placed Himself in the midst of the storm that was my life.... and I finally looked and found Him, He was the refuge that took me in, He calmed my fears, and took away all the turbulence and strife.

God rescued me, He transformed my life, and set me upon a path so new...and with the wind now at my back, the way ahead became clear.... and the future brought me straight to you.

God had planned all along for the love that we share, He knew all that our lives together could be...and God waited so patiently, standing so close by my side, for me to see Him and finally agree.

I am so grateful that God never gave up, that He pursued me to give me this new life...to pour out such joy and love so fresh and new...and I know in my heart that you are my gift from Him...He gave me life, and He made my dreams come true.
