“He marks out the horizon on the face of the waters for a boundary between light and darkness” Job 26:10
(Is hard to believe… A month ago I was taking a picture in Revere Beach, MA… Today I’m in Brazil in Jardim Camburi Beach… And I finally stepped in the beach… Even tough I’m in a tropical country, I haven’t been to the beach yet… This picture call tell you why. It has been raining a lot… The weather here is as crazy as New England weather… and on top of that we are still adapting… and taking it very slow… But this afternoon I just had to go there… It is indeed a beautiful beach and the sky was so dramatic creating a contrast between light and darkness…)
“Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.” Hebrews 4:13
(I always have this expectation when I go to the beach. I take the bus there and I always look for the moment where I can see it from far away. Today it was just way to gorgeous… The combination of orange, yellow and blue was just perfect… Today was definitely worthy waking up early and taking some time at one of my favorite places maybe for the last time…)
“He calmed the storm to a whisper and stilled the waves.” Psalms 107:29
“… my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.” Isaiah 6:5b
(This verse is a bit out of context I guess but I’m going to explain why I chose this verse… Well, today we went whale watching! I always wanted to go whale watching and it is so nice!!! I totally recommend it! We have so much fun, the weather was good and the whales and the dolphins were showing off!! We had a blast! Now with the verse… Well, I love the ocean and by now I think you can tell by numbers of pictures I take at the beach (I wish I could go more often…) And as the boat was going into that endless ocean I could only think about the greatness of our God… then I started to see the dolphins (I wasn’t expecting to see any… they are my favorite animals… it was a great surprise!) and then the big whales… I mean… What else can you do but give thanks to God? It was one of those “magical moments” that God let me see how big He is… I kind of hard for me to put into words, but I think you know what I’m talking about… It is not over yet… Well, then we go to church… The last worship song said this: “Glorious, my eyes have seen the glory of the Lord”… Then comes the preaching and the preacher uses this verse… Even tough I didn’t see the King like Isaiah did, I can assure you that through His marvelous creation we can see Him everyday!
By the way, today was supposed to be the last week of the “Sunday Praise Project”. I’ll see if I’ll finish it next week or maybe not… let’s see how it goes!)
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” Revelation 22:13
(It was drizzling but I had to go there…)
Color and Theme Project: Week 7 – Color: Blue – Theme: Discouragement
I claim this scripture to overcome discouragement:
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.” Psalms 46:1-3
(I’m so blessed to live near the beach… I haven’t been there for weeks… I missed it so much… I knew that I had to go there. It is one of my favorite places to talk with God and find courage to face life!)
Color and Theme Project: Week 1 – Color: Purple – Theme: Guilt
I claim this scripture to overcome guilt:
“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:1
(Early post today. Woke up early to see the sunrise and what a privilege… I hope there is enough purple in the picture… I think so, do you?
This is one of my favorite places… I love this pier… He knew I needed to be there.
Is almost time to hit the road back home… and I glad I’ll go with this in my heart!)
