How the Ocean Calms my Soul

So it’s been quite awhile since I’ve posted. Part of the reason is because I’ve been on vacation and wanted to try to disconnect from the internet world as much as possible. The other reason is because I’ve been low on words to say lately. Everywhere I look I feel that other people are saying what I want to say more eloquently. I’ve been enjoying using my time to read and connect with  friends and family, but I’m getting the itch to write again!

Our vacation was wonderful. The days we spent in Monterey and in Sonoma County were some of the most relaxing times I have had all year. There’s something about watching the waves crash against the rocks as the tide rolls in that calms my spirit like nothing else. In the mornings we would go for walks around the rocky beach and every day I was reminded that God is FAITHFUL and POWERFUL. As I sat by the powerful, yet calm ocean I would sing Oceans by Hilsong United and tears would run down my face.

Tomorrow I’ll share more pictures and some of the fun things we did, but I wanted to share today how my heart found peace again on our trip. Now the hard part will be to continue to hold on to Jesus when the storms of life are still a reality.

“Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)”

You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior
[x6]

I will call upon Your Name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine
