The Pacific Ocean

The beach. There is nothing that compares to reading your Bible along side the Pacific Ocean. This is something I have learned from experience. Something about looking out into the water makes me realize how so very tiny my problems are compared to the size of the sea. I am one of 7 billion people on Earth, pretty much a drop in the ocean, and sitting beside the sea, I still feel loved when I open my Bible. 

We live in a world that is full of hurt, shame, and regret; however, sitting next to such beautiful creation and reading about a beautiful creator gives light to the darkness of those words. When I was twelve I opened this book for the very first time. I did not know much about Jesus but I did not mind reading for the first time in a long time. Yet, even then, I never expected to be reading this book beside the Ocean 6 years later, still learning more and more about life, love, grace, and freedom.
