The Beauty and Power of the Ocean – My Spiritual Place

posted by cmartin

The ocean is where I feel empowered and renewed by God the most.  I am drawn to it, in the same way that I am drawn to God.  Times when I need answers or feel too overwhelmed, I go sit and stare at the mighty ocean, the representation of God that overwhelms my soul.

It is gentle and soothing, yet powerful and authoritative.  You cannot control it and it can sweep you away at its liking.  You fear it, yet you cannot take your eyes from it.  It’s beauty overwhelms and transforms you.

I believe God shows me more of who He is when He takes me to the ocean.  I can hear His voice in the crashing waves and I have had many a questions answered there.

After graduation, God lead me back home, 123 miles from the ocean.  That may not seem like a lot to some, but I had been 10 minutes away.  That has been a new challenge, but I am content in knowing that God led me here for a reason, perhaps to show me more of Himself in other things.  I pray that He will lead me back one day soon, but I know that He has a purpose for everything.

Be confident in who who were made to be and don't hide the light you've been given!  "You are the light of the world - like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.  No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket.  Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in

Are you an introvert?
  How do you process?  This is the biggest difference between introverts and extroverts.  Do you process things internally or verbally?  Yes, we all do a little of both but most people usually lean to one of the two sides. I know that I am more of an introvert and it's just recently th

Living by the Spirit
"For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters.  But don't use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature.  Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love." - Galatians 5:13 (NLT) I love the book of Galatians.  I am reading through it again right now for the 3rd

Seeking Freedom
If I asked you if you'd rather be free or bound up, what would you say?  If you had the choice to be completely yourself, free from persecution in any way OR tied down and burdened under a law, what would be your answer?  This seems pretty obvious, right?  So why is this decision so hard for us t
