I find a peace at the beach in my hometown unlike no other place, unfortunately I’m not there right now. The closest I can get today are these glorious photographs of a recent “Fall Sunset” at the coast sent to me by my little brother and I can go there in my mind and my heart.
When you begin to feel like your journey is pulling you down, “It’s One of Those Times to Take a Moment and Breathe.” I personally know exactly what it feels like to stand on the sand in this exact spot near the ocean at the Northern Oregon Coast and experience God’s grace and love.
Just stand there with your eyes closed and your face to the sky, open your arms and breathe deep. Let yourself feel God’s powerful presence all around you and let it give you strength to take the next steps on your path.
I have no doubt that God is walking with me and that his timing is perfect. He never fails to show me he is there just when I need reassurance and when I wonder if I really can handle one more thing, he lifts me up. I can’t wait to see what he has in store for me next!
“But forget all that— it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? . . .” Isaiah 43:18-19, NLT
I DO SEE IT!
