David wrote in Psalm 139:9-10, "If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me."
I love that scripture. Some years back my youngest daughter and a couple of her girlfriends done some summer traveling. So many of the pictures she made turned out beautiful. But then I love pictures that reflect the beauty of the Lord. There was one that showed the crystal blue water with the beautiful sand and I just loved it. I added the scripture to it (Ps. 139:9-10) and framed it.
You can't see it as well as I would like for you too as I have it in a frame but it is simply breath taking.
I've been pulling out different things to do a Beach theme tablescape and of course I grabbed this picture. It has been such a reminder to me that my God is always near to me. Think about it....
If we were to travel the ends of the earth, God would still be there. If we were to dive to the depths of the ocean, God would still be there. If we descend into the darkest places of our inner being, we will still find God. There's no place we can go that He isn't present. God's presence floods the earth.
His presence is His promise.
God's nearness should be our source of courage and strength. We are to find refuge His presence. His presence means everything for us. It means we're not alone anymore. It means he will guide us through the different situations and circumstances that we may find ourselves in. When you wake up in the morning, God is there. When you wander out into your day, God is there for you. When you lay down at night, God is there for you.
There is ONLY ONE thing...ONE PERSON that is NEVER CHANGING and that's the character of our heavenly Father. He's completely faithful and committed to seeing through the promises He has made to us. As we look this week at the promises of God may it be a reminder of His unchanging love for us. HE IS OUR ONLY UNSHAKABLE FOUNDATION in a SHAKEABLE WORLD.
I don't know about you my friend but I am so grateful that He is always near me!
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
