The Sounds of the Beach

ocean waves - wide 2

Matthew 13:1

“The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.”

I love this verse. It speaks so much about the humanity of Jesus. He created the seas and lakes, now He takes time to sit by the seaside. His privacy was short-lived but it shows how He enjoyed taking a minute to sit by the sea.

Charlene and I like the beach. We enjoy sitting by the seaside and watching the waves roll into shore. There is a calming peace about the stability of the waves. They just keep coming. They are powerful and peaceful at the same time.

There is also something replenishing about the beach. It’s feels like it is always giving. It rolls into you constantly in an act of giving. It is refilling the soul with hope. It restocks the mind with patience and endurance.

It also is just beauty displayed in ongoing waves. One of the last times we were at the beach, there were storms off shore and the waves were pounding on the shore. Large waves breaking onto the sand. Yet there in the sound of fury there was a demonstration of God’s power and grace.

I can picture Jesus sitting by the sea and enjoying His creation as I often get to do. I see the waves rolling in and I see the creator reminding us that He is ever-loving and His mercies endure forever. The sound of the sea is like the sound of praise. Join in and add your voice to the sound of heaven’s choir rejoicing in His creation.
