31daysofholdingbuttonIt started with a simple conversation about vacations and the sights we had each seen. We talked mountains, bears, elks, frozen lakes, fish. It was then that I remembered.

We had taken a cruise a few years back. We had taken cruises before but this was the first time that we would be at sea for several days.

How does one capture the vastness that lies before your eyes for days?

There are no words to describe the feeling of not seeing a thing, not a single thing, but water for days. No land. No shore far off in the distance. No clouds. No birds.

Just water.


As far as the eye can see.

My mind was at such a loss to describe the feeling, the wonderment of realizing that water as far reaching as the horizon also meant water equally as deep. My mind could not truly wrap itself around what was truly immeasurable. To get up for two mornings and look out and confirm water was still all that could be seen was incomprehensible.

And it all spoke of a Creator, a God that was majestic beyond my understanding or ability to grasp.

It boasted of a God, Who Alone, holds the oceans in their place.

Who kept the sea inside its boundaries as it burst from the womb, and as I clothed it with clouds and wrapped it in thick darkness? For I locked it behind barred gates, limiting its shores. I said, “This far and no farther will you come. Here your proud waves stop!” (Job 38: 8-11, NLT)

My God can hold an ocean back with one little shore.
