Remembering today that my God still controls the wind and the waves! Nothing is allowed without his permission. Our victories, our failures. Our hurts and heartaches. Nothing falls outside of his plan for our lives. Nothing.
God will bring us back to places to remind us of His faithfulness.
I have travelled the world looking for the perfect sunset and often find myself sitting on this beach, only 45 min from home. It is here the Lord gifted me the poem footprints in the sand after my father’s suicide. The Lord brought me back to Ipperwash beach many many many times over the years but especially when the waves of life have been too much for me.
I find myself running here to reconnect with him, with my family, to find peace.
I was reminded of this today… he still controls the wind and every single wave! That peace belongs to him and is found in his presence.
This place is so precious to me. No one can take away the beautiful lessons that God has taught and re-taught me on this shoreline.
No one can take away the peace I find here.
I see full well the care God has lavished on me over the years, the way he’s brought my family together in this place, how he’s grown my faith right here on this shoreline.
So today if you feel the waves rising up over your head, or the wind blowing hard across your face, consider the one whose allowed it. Consider the lesson he’s teaching you in it.
Peace belongs to God. Man can’t steal your peace. It is secured in him!
Today, the waves may be crashing upon the shoreline (or my head) but tomorrow this same water will look like glass, because the Lord of my life has said “peace be still.”
