We visit the ocean semi-frequently, because we love it & because we live close enough to go in the evening. The best: post-nap-time-dinner-on-the-beach-playtime-watching-the-sun-set. It may be my very favorite thing to do with toddlers (with the one blemish being a late bed time).
|My boys try to carry water from the ocean & get too excited & spill it EVERY time. It's precious & hilarious.|
"we are his portion & He is our prize, drawn to redemption by the grace in his eyes,
if His grace is an ocean, we're all sinking"
I am a Little.Fish. in an ocean of His grace. I love this image because of the magnitude - hugeness - deepness - abundance - overwhelming force. An.OCEAN.of.GRACE.
Grace: the free & unmerited FAVOR of God.
If HIS grace is an ocean, we're all sinking - I don't really like the idea of sinking. I lose control, I am at the mercy of whatever external force is acting upon me- I must rely on an outside force to act upon me to PULL ME OUT if I'm sinking. But, if His grace is an ocean, and I'm sinking in it, would I ever want to get pulled out?

Lord, thank you for an ocean of your grace. Your unmerited favor. Your free gift. The beauty of the ocean takes my breath away, but I feel so much peace in its presence. Thank you for reminding me.
