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 Â 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.” Â Ecclesiastes 1:9
“He made the moon to mark the seasons, and theÂ sunÂ knows when to go down.” Psalm 104:19
â€œIn your anger do not sin.Â Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry,Â and do not give the devil a foothold.” Ephesians 4:26-27
“…Â for I have always been mindful of your unfailing love and have lived in reliance of your faithfulness.” Psalm 26:3 Â
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 plansÂ I have for you,â€ declares theÂ Lord,â€œÂ plansÂ to prosper you and not to harm you,Â plansÂ to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
Praise God from whom all blessings truly flow!
