I love being at the beach. Not so that I can tan. Not to swim. Not even to collect beautiful shells. I love to walk along the beach staring off into the horizon and being reminded of God’s incredible creation. Every day without fail, the sun rises and then sets in a beautiful view. Every day the tide comes in and goes out. God paints beautiful pictures in His creation for us to enjoy. The wonderful thing is that the more I appreciate God’s creation, the more in awe of God I am. I am overwhelmed by the greatness of God because He didn’t stop at creating a beautiful world. He in love created me. Psalm 139 tells us:
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
To think that such an amazing God would also love me. Love me on worst day. In the midst of storms and chaos in our lives, a true peace and joy come from taking some moments to being still and knowing who God truly is.
