~ WFW ~ Word Filled Wednesday!

The sea is his, for he made it, and his hand formed the dry land.
~ Psalm 95:5

This picture is of the ocean off of Kiawah Island, SC. I cannot tell you what a time I had with my God this past week. When we arrived last Wednesday, even though it was dark, we went out to the beach. (our villa was ocean front). I couldn't see a think. It was black as pitch... but I could hear... I could hear the magnificent ocean waves crashing onto the shore. My hands drop to my side, I closed my eyes and leaned my head back. Inhaling deep I thanked God for His creation. I also thought of the beginning

Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
~ Genesis 1:2

I imagined the beginning, before there was light. God was there hovering over the dark waters... it was as if I cold feel just God... nothing else. At that moment I was one with Him. I felt so much of Him fall over me. He was there at the beginning, and He is still here! What joy filled my heart!

Yes, the sea is His - He made it! Thanking and praising Him for the beauty He gives us!

The ocean that God created is magnificent! With all of the sand, water and sky surrounding you at the beach, you can absolutely feel His presence all around you.


God Bless,

Truly Amazing is our God! As I read your words I almost felt like I was there with you. His majesty is overpowering at times. Come on over and see the pics I took last Saturday. I think you will enjoy the wonders of the Lord there also.

I can't even imagine the beginning of creation. I believe what you described and experience would be close. What a precious thing to be pitch black and yet hear the ocean. If I'm ever in that position and near the ocean at night, I'll make sure to experience that.
Thanks, Kristen, for this visual.

Wonderful post, I loved your words. Thank you! I am so blessed to live near the ocean, it is such a draw for me to occasionally make a day trip to hang out and just feel the power of the waves and see the beauty God has created. Have a great week!
