This song was ringing in my ears during my prayer time this morning so I thought I would share it with you all.
**Taken from a page in my daily devotional book**
The Oregon Coast is a thing of beauty. The craggy rocks that define the shoreline are quite a contrast from the smooth sandy beaches of California. But the long, rugged shoreline of the Northwest boasts romance and personality. The blue waters of the Pacific drench mile after mile of tide waters in which grow tall evergreen trees. The approaching waves fall like the pages of a book blown by an unexpected breeze.
Anyone who has spent time beach combing along Reedsport, Florence, or Lincoln City knows that what is lovely and beautiful to look at is at the same time a power to be reckoned with. Lives are lost each year off the Oregon Coast by those who failed to respect the mysterious force that churns beneath the tranquil glass-like sea.
The Lord is at once loving and holy. He is not to be taken lightly or dismissed as sentimental. That His love is beautiful to behold (not to mention life-changing when embraced) cannot be disputed. But His is a holy love that demands reverence and awe. When we come to Him aware of who He is, we can drink in the unequaled splendor of the Almighty God who has demonstrated His never-ending love that is deeper than the deepest sea.
The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves. The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea. Psalm 93:3-4
Prayer (modified): Dear Lord, help us to take time throughout our day and linger in reverent silence, being aware of the ocean-like power of your holy love. We pray that you will allow us to not only admire the beauty of your love, but reverence it and you. Lord give us opportunities daily to show and tell others of your love. In Jesus name we pray and give obedient thanks. Amen.
