During my husband’s military tenure, we often set eyes on the ocean and wiggled toes in the sand. Our life embraced coastal living with sea and shore for many years. However, we didn’t love living near the water.
“Give us a cabin in the mountain,” we championed. Over time, however, we warmed to the beach. We came to love it, and I grew to sense God’s presence at the shore in beautiful ways. I’m convinced something special exists at the beach – that God Himself meets us there.
Maybe it’s the breeze evidenced as it flows through a head of hair, championing God Himself – invisible, yet visible through His works. Or, perhaps it’s the rolling ocean, rushing forward to greet visitors, only to retreat as if coaxing our entry. Faith swims in those waters.
Several verses alluding to beach elements reside in the Bible as well. They point to our Father and His goodness. Below are nine of those verses and their accompanying attributes. Take them with you whether you head to the beach or simply dream of sifting sand this summer.
