loud & bold love affair.
the other night luke and i were sitting on the beach watching the most beautiful orange and blue sunset, listening to one wave crash after another.
a big swell was breaking so the waves were loud and bold.
we were talking about life, and all the ways God is working around us.
i told him of something i heard when i was younger about the ocean.
…i think it was the start of my ocean love affair.
it was a quote that said:
“Because there’s nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it’s sent away.”
no matter how many times we tell God we don’t need him, or don’t want him, he pursues us.
the waves crashing on the shore, kissing it loudly and boldly every three seconds reminds me of this amazing characteristic of our loving God.
He constantly pursues and loves us loudly and boldly.
He refuses to stop – to stop loving us, to stop kissing us, to stop pursuing us.
& it’s our job to do this back.
to become the waves, one day…to the people around us.
thankful for a boy i can talk to about this sort of stuff and who encourages me so well.
thankful for a God that hides hints of his never ending love for us all over this earth.
now go find them.
