Psalm Saturday

Time to join my friend Collette again over at Jesus Loves Mums for Psalm Saturday.
Join us this week as we share how something in the Psalms spoke to us.....

"He assigned the sea it's boundaries......"
Psalm 33:7a, NLT

I love the ocean. You can look as far as the eye can see and all you see is sky and water.

While I'm standing on the beach, I realize just how small I am and how big my God is.

Digging my toes into the sand, I simply cannot wrap my mind around the fact that God, MY God, knows how many grains are lying there.....let that sink in for a moment.

Then, while reading in Psalm 33 this week I came across the above verse and that got my mind to racing.

I found myself thinking that the tide rolls in and out, but it only goes so far. Why?
How does it know that "this" is far enough?
How do the waves know that "this" is far enough?
There is nothing to make a barrier, it could keep rolling and rolling, but it doesn't.


Because God has total control over it and it obeys His command.

I need to be like that very ocean that I love so much.

God gives me freedom and He allows me to roll here and roll there. But unlike the ocean, I try to keep control and ignore His commands and pretty soon I find myself completely in a mess and creating problems for myself and those around me.

I've flooded this area and made a mess and I've let that area dry up and made another mess.

...Help me to realize Father, that if I'd just be obedient and let you have control that I can enjoy 'rolling' with You, just like that big ole' ocean.
