HOW DEEP IS HIS LOVE?


The day is birthed by the oceanís heartbeat, the rhythmic sound of the waves thrust against the breakers. The rising sun is like a helium balloon balanced above the oceanís floor, itís glare angled hard on waves made of metal. I watch while the sandpipers vie for sea urchins that are swept ashore, as if Godís breath blew them into the sand. They tuck their heads down and scurry to the shoreline, dashing away from the sweeping waves that retrieve the earlier deposits; only to have them repeat this ritual over and over. As evening approaches the sandpipers disappear, and I know that tomorrow they will return to the shoreline to collect Godís provision for them.
I sit on the cooling sand as the evening tide gently licks my feet. As far as I can see, east to west, is the vastness of the ocean. It is during these spectacular moments that I am reminded of Godís mercy and grace. How He has removed all of our sins; so far removed as the width of this ocean before me.
The oceanís depth is not to be compared to the depth of Godís love toward us, His creation. If we ever question His fidelity, we have only to be reminded of Jesusí sacrifice at Calvary. How God, our Heavenly Father, redeemed us all, bringing us back into fellowship by way of the cross of Christ. Whenever you view the ocean, climb a mountain or even hear a baby cry, you are reminded that there is a Creator, and He calls you His child.
I watch the eye of Heaven, an orange orb, slip beneath the horizon, falling into the oceanís mouth. Another day gone out to sea. I am content in knowing that the mistakes of this day are laved away. By my confession of sins, God himself has removed and they are washed away; just as the sand is washed from my feet. As vast as this ocean is, so deep is Godís love to you. His Word testifies of His promise to us, ďÖlo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.Ē Matt.28: 20 KJV

Enjoyed your talent for descriptions. I could visualize myself sitting beside you and seeing what you were seeing. Especially fond of: the ocean's heartbeat :)

Double spacing between paragraphs, makes for easier reading.

You have a beautiful sentiment and i understand you are saying how powerful God's word is, but it might have been a little off topic.
Your descriptions were so vivid and I felt like I could hear and see the birds and the winds of the ocean.
Your words had a very powerful meaning to me.

I can definitely tell that this piece came from the pen (or keyboard) of a natural born writer. :)
You have a beautiful and captivating style of describing God's creation.

Keep that pen writing!

Gorgeous writing--your imagery is beautiful.

Teensy quibble: I'm not sure how "on topic" this is.

But it's wonderful writing; you have a real gift. Hope to see lots more from you here.
