Something to think about
There’s something about the sea that touches us deeply. We become more acutely aware of our deeper selves as we listen to the rhythmic roll of the waves and view the vast expanse of the ocean. Certainly, there is something about the seashore that connects me to what is most important for me, to my God who is limitless in his love and mercy. Here I can sense the presence of the God who journeys with me, helping me slowly to glimpse the unfolding mystery of his love and to trust his guidance in my life.
I have let go of many things at the seashore – hurts, fears, resentments – and it has always been a place of great healing for me. And I know that I’m not the only one to experience this. The healing qualities of the sea have long been documented allowing us to disconnect from our chaotic world, if only for a short time. We don’t often value this type of tranquillity, but it can be incredibly restorative for us when our own resources are low and we feel unable to cope.
Isn’t the seashore a reflection of our lives? The shoreline is like the space we inhabit between the great unknown – the mystery of God, heaven and eternal life – and life as we know it, the mundane reality of the here-and-now.
