Five Minute Friday - Ocean

Hey y'all!  I am back with another Five Minute Friday.  I hope you have been enjoying these. If you are new to my blog and you don't know what Five Minute Friday is you can hope over to Kate's site so she can fill you in.

Well, this week our word is Ocean.  

When I think of the ocean I picture sitting on the beach looking out at the water.  The waves violently crashing around!  Sea life being tossed to and fro at that moment the ocean seems so angry as if everything is in total chaos and at that very moment it seems like it can't get better.  Then while watching, right before your very eyes the waves calm and as you are looking out over the ocean you see the waves start to settle. Peace.  The peace and the calmness of the once raging ocean is unexplainable!  

You know life is like that at times it seems everything in your life is going wrong, all your plans are being tossed to and fro like the ocean, your emotions are crashing around like the waves of the raging ocean and it just seems like in that very moment nothing can get better, but then you stop in the mist of all the chaos and you look to the hills from which your help comes from and you are reminded to trust God's process.  He knows us better than we know our self, He is the beginning and the end, He has already won the battle.  As soon as you know, trust, and believe that, at that very moment right before your eyes the waves will calm and you will have a peace about you that only the Lord can give!  

Thank you so much for stopping by stop be shy be sure to say HI!


  1. Amen! Love your reminder to look to God during the hard times. Visiting from FMF : )

  2. Isn't the ocean simply fascinating? It might be the ONLY thing we can perceive with our own (human) senses that represents BOTH complete Rage/Danger and total peace/beauty.
