Picture this: I am standing at the edge of the ocean, my feet are buried in the sand, my ipod is playing, and I am in complete aw. I am standing in complete freedom. The wind is brushing across my face and the waves are crashing at my feet…what could be better? The music I am listening to completely strips me to the core. Its just me…my thoughts and emotions. I pay no attention to what is around me. I feel completely safe and tucked away in my own little world where God is the center. Sometimes I’m quiet, sometimes I pray, but no matter what, I am spending time with God. I love it! I want the feeling to last a lifetime!
As the song “Washed by the Water” by Need to Breathe plays, I cannot help but be overpowered by the words. One of the verses says, “Even when the rain falls; even when the flood starts rising; even when the storm comes; I am washed by the water”. How awesome and refreshing is it to be washed by the water right in the midst of a storm?! Isaiah 43:2 says, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you.” I can truly say that I understand what this verse says and I believe it! Thank you God for allowing me the chance to have this experience. One that is tangible and I can completely get my arms around! The chance to feel Your presence and be touched by Your grace!
Love in Christ,
