The Sea, the Sun and Your Son

Christianity, Faith, Love, Photography, Poetry

I see Your face

          in the morning

                 and the setting sun


I hear Your peace

                 in the quiet evening

              by waters that run


I feel Your embrace

               in the days coming

                            with Your Love, never gone

Look to Him

Bite Sized Thoughts, Christianity, Faith

Look to God, not on your situations.

Even your situations are meant to bow down before Him. Sit, relax, ‘rest’ and watch Him do it. When we humbly admit that we cannot do things on our own, we allow Him to work in and through us. Humility is a position to receive Grace. The ability to be joyful and thankful amid trying times comes from knowing that He is in control.  If I may borrow these words from one of our church leaders, David Kahn, who spoke for our Life Series: “Press your heart unto Jesus’s chest.”  I believe that’s truly where genuine “rest” begins to happen. Try to taste and see that He is good, you will never fail to praise Him.

“Relax, everything’s going to be all right; rest, everything’s coming together; open your hearts, love is on the way!” (Jude 1:1-2 MSG)

Photo: "I've discovered praising God is at the center of contentment. As we praise Him, we find the assurance that He's got things covered ... even babies who cry inconsolably and our longing for significance.

It's there, in knowing God sees us and hasn't forgotten us, we find peace.

And it's there, in every walking-rocking-sleepless night, we find purpose.

My season of life is different now, but I'm still faced with saying "goodbye" to things I love. That "little" boy moves away to college next month, and I'm praying for an attitude like King David's — full of praise, grace and generosity of heart.” - Glynnis Whitwer
