M I G H T Y 🌊

Over the last few years, I’ve been able to visit the ocean and it never failed each time God taught me something new! There’s something about watching a rush of waves fall into the shore that completely demonstrates God’s majesty and I get lost in it! I press in listening and waiting.

This last visit was with my HUSBAND on our HONEYMOON! That statement alone is something I never thought I would say, but here we were sitting on the beach together. When I look at Alec, I’m reminded of God’s provision in His timing. If it were up to me, I would have been married right after I graduated college, but God had something else in store much later than my plans. ALEC!

I think it’s easy to get caught up in the world’s timeline of things, but when I look at the waves, they obey God. They do as God says. He says to BE STILL and the waters are still. The waters aren’t doing it when the world says to, but when God says it’s time, they listen.

So what does that mean for you?

What if you started living not on your timeline, but on God’s?

What if you started listening to His way sooner instead of the world’s timeline?

How would that change your life?

The answers to those questions are crucial. God doesn’t just want to be your God when you want it, but ALL. THE. TIME. He wants to lead literally every step of the way. The waves don’t sometimes listen to God, they always listen to God.

Are you sometimes listening or always listening?

At the end of this trip to the ocean, I see God mightier than ever. I think that’s why waiting is good and I think that’s why God tells His people to wait all throughout Scripture. The lessons He wants to teach you in the waiting are absolutely crucial, but you have to let God be in control always!

Do you believe in His might in and for every circumstance?? God is mighty! Rest in it!

Mightier than the thunders of many waters, mightier than the waves of the sea, the LORD on high is mighty!

– Psalm 93:4

Honeymoon Reads

Sitting by the beach has always been a great place for me to unwind and reconnect with God. There’s something about the sun, waves, and ocean breeze that draws me into the Lord.

It’s also a great opportunity to read some books!

The first one I want to share with you is The Gospel According to Satan by Jared C. Wilson. This book is a 10 out of 10. Throughout the book, Jared classifies different lies we believe in our culture. Some of these hit home more than others, but it’s convicting none the less. Jared takes lies Satan tries to convince us are truth and he counters each lie with truth found in the Word of God.

If you’re looking for a book that incorporates Scripture, this is a book for you! The verses are explained in the correct context and it’s a great read! This one will help you identify, uproot, and replace lies we far too often believe.

The other book I got to read on the honeymoon was Holy Guacamole by Carrie Stephens. This one is a little harder for me to recommend just because it provided some practical application, but it missed the mark on some interpretations of the Bible. At some points in the book, Carrie suggests some things that don’t line up with where I stand theologically.

I will say, reading this book shed some light onto some areas of my heart where I need to accept what God says about me instead of what the world will say about me. Carrie is also VERY entertaining. As an author, she has a very strong voice that makes reading her writing so enjoyable.
