“Father, make of me a crisis man. Bring those I contact to decision. Let me not be a milepost on a single road;
make me a fork
, that men must turn one way or another on facing Christ in me.” - Jim Elliot

Water Falls.

Water falls into the Pacific Ocean
photography by Anthony Kaetzel

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.  
 1 Peter 5:7

Sometimes it feels like a waterfall.
Pouring out.  So fast.  Uncontrollable.

It falls.  And keeps falling.
And then it collects.  Like water in a hidden cove.
It tosses and turns.  Waves of worry.  Getting bigger.

And I feel hidden.
And I feel like I am alone.
And all I can see are waves and boulders.  And no way out.

Beyond my view.
There is an ocean.  That I cannot see.
And it is big enough to take care of every fear.  Every concern.  Every thing.

Siesta Scripture Memory Team Verse # 5

I know the topic is worry, but I see beauty as well. Living close to the ocean... all will be well. All is well. Sometimes, we just can't see it.

Thank you. I've been searching for words of comfort during a time of upheaval, and God has used your beautiful words to bring peace.
