To me, the ocean is beautiful and another example of the power and goodness of God. He made it pleasing to the eyes and filled it with interesting creatures. It showcases His glory every night as the sun sinks below the horizon. It serves as a playground for those who ride its waves, and as an education for others who study its currents (my grandpa did both!). It’s where seagulls gather and where tiny crabs burrow into the sand. But more than that, it is a reminder that although things appear to stop, like where water meets the sky, that is only an illusion.
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11, NIV)
