Thoughts on the Atlantic



The rain and thunder rolled across the Floridian Atlantic coast today. The lightening bolts flashed out of the sky like electric javelins that at once appeared, then disappeared into the stirring ocean. And as i was sitting on my balcony while the rain was coming down in waves, i realized how beautiful life really is. I realized, as the lightening flashed across the sky and the horizon, that i have such a peace. And as the hot air and the cold air clashed in the sky above, making the thunder that would shake the building, i was amazed that everything has really worked out for the good (Rom 8:28).

People will always make choices. And those choices, many times, will be hurtful, confusing, and frustrating. They will not make sense. What can you do about it? You can keep living. You can trust that Yahweh does have you in his hand. You can keep making choices, keep moving forward with Him. Don’t let what others do affect what you know to do. Don’t give power to the choices others make.

It is then, after a period of time, when you will see that he does work things out, that he does see the big picture, that he will give you the desires of your heart (Ps. 37:4). You will see that he can make the situation better than you ever imagined. I have realized this this year.

So, i’ll be here in Cocoa Beach for another 5 days – and then off to Charleston! It’ll be a great week. Here’s a few shots from what we have done.
