Last Sunday I spoke at the Bethany Beach Tabernacle in Michigan, and our family decided stay a few extra days to enjoy the lake. We had a great time playing in the water and soaking up the sun. I’ve got a pretty impressive farmer’s tan now!
There’s something about being on the water that speaks to my soul. I’m a nature guy, and find that God always shows up when I get still and get out in creation.
We had some decent swells on the lake, and as they broke across my chest, I was reminded of God’s power: strong, irresistible, awesome, and mighty.
We spent hours building sandcastles, only to have them disappear overnight, and I was reminded of my own insignificance: finite, transient, ephemeral, and earthly.
As each wave after wave steadily broke against the shore, I was reminded of God’s faithfulness: constant, dependable, steadfast, and true.
How blessed we are that the God of all power is mindful of us in our insignificance, and in His enduring faithfulness has loved us, more than we know!

So glad you and your family can get out and enjoy the beautiful weather we are having!
On another note I am really enjoying your sermons!
Yes, not only do the heavens declare the glory of God, but also the lake and the lakeshore! Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
