Finding Him...

When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
..

I watched the ocean yesterday.

Sweeping.

Pulling.

Tossing.

Breaking.

I saw myself in those waves.

So vividly... I knew.

When will this end? I asked. The sweeping. Pulling. Tossing. Breaking.

Life has come so fast lately...

As I watched the waves.. sweeping... pulling... tossing... breaking... I heard a whisper.

"Look," My Boy said.

I turned to see it it. The moon-path... shining its way across the choppy waves.

Yes, there are waves right now. Yes, they are sweeping. Pulling. Tossing. Breaking.

Yes, my Jesus is here.

In the midst of it all.

Yes, He is my protector. My strong tower. I run to Him and am safe.

For I am the LORD, your God,

the Holy One of Israel, your Savior...

(Scripture is from Isaiah 43, written for the Nation of Israel. I also believe that Jesus walks through my waters with me... His child.)

Question for 2Day:
Was there a time when God brought you through deep waters?

I think He's doing that now. I think I'm in the midst of it. I can't always see Him or what He's doing but I know He is.

Mmmm... I'm right there with you, Elaina. Hang in there!

I know all about waiting--for the right guy, for high school to end, for my boobs to come in (two out of three ain't bad).
