I like your extended ocean metaphor, and the description of the waves was superlative.

"it is in the valley where we find the strength to climb."
So true, it makes the view from the mountain top even better! Wonderful devotional, love the way you brought your dog into the story.

Love the extended metaphor as well - this was beautifully crafted.

Where do I start? Your descriptive language is absolutely lovely yet so natural. This is one of my favorites. It felt as if you were weaving in and out like the waves. One of my favorite lines:

Beyond the waves is the horizon, and beyond the horizon is the Promised Land.

My vision is limited.

Godís is not

I am so thankful His vision is not limited and neither is His grace. Simply lovely and thought provoking.
