A recent cruise from Louisiana to Costa Maya, Belize, Roatan (Honduras) and Cozumel took us through the Gulf of Mexico.
I enjoy being on the water and falling asleep to the gentle rocking of the ship like a baby being cradled in the safety of their parent’s arms.
But now it was time to find a quiet corner and behold the beautiful landscape that lay before me. I snapped a few pictures and, frankly, felt quite small as a human being. The scene before me reminded me of how majestic the earth can be as if God took His finger and painted the beautiful scene Himself.
“What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 1:9
“He made the moon to mark the seasons, and the sun knows when to go down.” Psalm 104:19
“In your anger do not sin. Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold.” Ephesians 4:26-27
“… for I have always been mindful of your unfailing love and have lived in reliance of your faithfulness.” Psalm 26:3
So true. Every day I’m reminded of the many blessings in my life and I realize that God is faithful in all He has promised me, His child.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,“ plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
Praise God from whom all blessings truly flow!
