The feeling of nature on the skin reaches a part of the inner core of your soul that changes your emotional and physical being at the very moment of contact. The feeling of wind on your face, the hot sun beaming down on you and the ocean waves crashing. Sounds and feelings that are indescribable. A feeling that everyone should experience, yet not all are able to embrace such peaceful sounds and see the beauty of the ocean.
When you come to the presence of being aware in this moment, nothing interferes or causes you to feel burdened or stressed, unless you allow it!
As we experience nature, it naturally flows with elegance, with ease, and sometimes there are rough patches. Like life; we have the moments when everything falls into place, the ease and peaceful feeling when Gods path lines up to ours. Then when a storm hits, the waves crash higher and harder, causing destruction to nature. Life happens like that too, a death, divorce, job loss, friends walk away, families are evicted, anything that disrupts our peaceful sea discourages us to go beyond the line into a chapter of the unknown.
Isaiah 59:21 “As for me, this is my covenant with them, “says the Lord. “My Spirit, who is on you, will not depart from you, and my words that I have put in your mouth will always be on your lips, on the lips of your children and on the lips of their descendants – from this time on and forever,” says the Lord.
Take natures intelligence and put it into practice in your own life.
God provides for every living thing, animals, plants, and humans…trust Him!
Matthew 6:26 Look at the birds of the air: They do not sow or reap or gather into barns–and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
Luke 12:24 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest, they don’t have storerooms or barns, but God feeds them. And you are worth much more than birds.
Psalm 136:25 He gives food to every living thing.
Not just with food does God provide, He provides in all things. (read Isaiah 59:21 again). His promise is to always be with you, from now on and forever. Permission to follow your dreams and go beyond the permitted line begins with you. Release those beliefs that limit you and go in confidence that God is with you. One door closed, and another door opens, cross that line and know that you have permission to continue even amid the worse storm of your life.
You are permitted to go beyond this chapter, take the first step into your next journey…you are covered in His Garment of Grace♥
“Certain things capture your eye but pursue only those that capture the heart”
(Native American Proverb)
May a Garment of Grace be over you,
