Unending Waves

Yesterday I spent the day at the Oregon coast.  Oregon is one of God's beautiful ideas.  I love the landscape and personality of this state.  The Pacific Ocean is endearingly framed by this land.  

I had some time to spend standing on a beach, watching colossal waves crash against rocks, then peter out near the shore where a group of carefree children where jumping and splashing and dancing in the white tides.  The Lord was speaking to me of His goodness.

Do you see the ocean, my daughter?  You can not fathom it's depth or it's breadth, and greater love have I for you than this.  My goodness towards you - my delight in you is like the waves, crashing on the shore, a rhythm with no end.  You think you have missed out, but look there again - another wave is coming.  And another one follows.
And another.
And another.
My love towards you is unrelenting.  

A young girl dancing in the waves caught my attention.  She was running to and fro in the tide, giggling with glee when she stopped and smiled at me.

"Is it too cold?" I asked wondering if the Pacific Ocean's frigid temperatures had given her toes a jolt.

"No," she she proclaimed, "I'm laughing because the waves are so BIG."

I smiled in agreement.

Jesus, open my eyes to see the goodness that pursues me.  And may I giggle with delight at the Truth that the love you have aimed at me is bigger than I could imagine.

"And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is." Ephesians 3:18
