I’m not sure why my soul longs for the beach, whether it’s the vast expanse of the gulf or the miles of sand and seashells. Whatever the case may be, the feeling is strong. I get clarity when I breathe in the salty air, and peace that settles on me from the rhythm of the waves crashing one after another. The flight and the calls of the seabirds take me back to my childhood days of frolicking on the beach, digging in the sand, and body surfing on the waves. We cannot forget that God appointed every moment for a purpose. My purpose today is to worship him in solitude and glorify him with my praise; it’s easy at the beach. When it’s not a beach day, and your world seems upside down, make your praise and worship more prolific because it’s in those moments that God will reach down and lift your heart and hold you closer. It’s easy to meet God at the beach, but it’s more beneficial to call on him while you are in the valley. So, wherever you are, at peace or in turmoil, reach out to God and ask for his divine presence to settle upon you for comfort, as only he can bring.
These things ye shall do unto the LORD in your set feasts, beside your vows, and your freewill offerings, for your burnt offerings, and for your meat offerings, and for your drink offerings, and for your peace offerings. And Moses told the children of Israel according to all that the LORD commanded Moses. Numbers 29:39-40
