Driving home one afternoon, I looked up at these amazing clouds and captured this pic. The sky resembled waves flowing through the sky. It reminded me that God often moves in waves and that He calms the waves around us and within us.
Some waves are exhilarating and full of adventure. Some are terrifying and full of pain. There is no way to avoid every wave in life such as trials; life can trails actually cause us to look to Jesus for strength. We can choose to trust that God will see us through them, and we can emerge from them with a new perspective as we learn to trust Him.
So the next time you look up at the sky, or into the waves of the ocean, don’t fear waves of change, surges of waves, or storms coming near, rather, look for the reminder that Jesus works through the waves.
“You rule the raging sea;
when its waves surge, You still them.” Psalms 89:9
“But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.” James 1:6
In one of my favorite songs, the refrain of “Oceans” highlights this point:
“And I will call upon Your name and keep my eyes above the waves, When oceans rise my soul will rest in Your embrace, For I am yours and You are mine.”
