During a long walk on the beach, I asked God to show me something amazing. In my mind, I was thinking He might show me some dolphins frolicking, or a fish frenzy, but God, in His mighty wisdom showed me something else. He said ‘it’s the same, but different.’ What could He possibly mean? I just kept walking. The waves were crashing, the sun was out, and it was an amazingly beautiful day. I had walked to the south end of the island and was turning towards the bay side when I notice that I could no longer hear the sound of crashing waves! The crashing waves were right there! I could see them, but it was suddenly peaceful. It was the same, but different. There were no dancing dolphins, just silence. If you are going through a tumultuous time, and it seems like there is no end in sight, keep walking through it. Our God is mightier than the waves. Take notice of when peace is revealed, you’ll probably walk right into it.
The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their roaring. Mightier than the thunders of many waters, mightier than the waves of the sea, the LORD on high is mighty! Psalms 93:3-4
