I Think Of You

"When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused." - Rainer Maria Rilke

As I walk along the beach with the wet sand squishing between my toes and

with the salty ocean breeze blowing in my face

I think of You

As I look at how far and deep and wide the ocean is

I think of You

As I watch as the waves pound against the rocks and

as I observe that invisible line drawn between the waters and the sand

I think of You

I could sit here for hours and meditate on how great and mighty You are because

the ocean makes me think of You

Why does the ocean make me think of God?

I have only been to the ocean a few times but each time I visit, I become more homesick for it and when I even think of it now, I tear up.

There is no place on earth that has ever come close to how the ocean makes me feel or how it causes me to think about how great and awesome God is.

The ocean is so vast, so powerful, so deep and it draws me to a place where I wish I were today.

There is a song by Ten Shekel Shirt called the Ocean and I believe it best represents my feelings towards God and how the ocean causes me to meditate on Him.

Does the ocean draw you closer to God?

Or is there another special place that makes you think of Him?

Thank you so much! Although the ocean is many many miles away from me and i've only been to the coast a few times, I am forever homesick for that place.

I long to move there. I'd rather have no money and be in a place that I feel closer to God than at the place I am now.

I pray that one day soon my family can pack up and move to this place. It's a place that I know I need to be.

Maybe i'm homesick for it because of the fact that i'm homesick for the place that I need to be with God.
