Mightier Than the Waves – CBM
By Rhiannon Grace, CBM National Intern –
Hello! This is Rhiannon. I just wanted to say that God has really blessed me, in that I had a chance to go to the beach this past month. Anyone who knows me knows that I love the beach and everything about it. It does not matter what type of beach, either, because I love the way the waves crash against the rocks at one with cliffs; and the pebble beaches where you find little stones that have been rubbed together by the movement of the water; and ones with big waves you can surf on.
As I was saying, though, I got to go to the beach in Florida this month. What an amazing sight that was: the dunes—great mounds of sand with small plants growing in them, salty ocean air, miles upon miles of beautiful water reflecting the sky above, sand perfect for sand castles, and waves just the right height to play in. The most bizarre thing I ever heard was that, at the beach we went to, the sand squeaked when you walked on it! I mean, it really squeaked. So strange and cool!
All in all, it was a lovely experience that reminded me of the majesty of our God. In Psalm 93, verses 3 & 4 remind me that He is greater than even the most powerful part about the ocean. “The floods have lifted up, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves. 4 The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.” The floods have lifted up—the tides rise. The floods have lifted up their voice—they get louder. The floods lift up their waves—the waves get bigger and bigger. And the Lord is mightier than the noise of many waters, even the great waves of the ocean. Even though, if you go just a little bit out into the ocean, and the waves seem like they could eat you alive, the Lord is mightier and stronger.
I love this because this applies to the waves of life that threaten to wash us over, yet our Lord and Savior is mightier. Next time you go to the beach, I hope you remember that. Anyway, that is just a snippet of my thoughts on the beach. I hope you have a lovely day and goodbye.
