THROUGH THE WAVES
Read Luke 8:4-15

These are the ones who, when they hear the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patient endurance.— Luke 8:15 (NRSV)

I was at the beach admiring God’s beautiful creation. Wading into the water, I was being tossed around by rough ocean waves. I kept falling down and going under. It was quite funny, actually. I decided to go deeper in the water where the waves were easier to take and I wouldn’t get knocked down.
I compared this experience to my relationship with God. When I grow deeper and closer to God, I can take on life’s waves more easily. I don’t get knocked down by every challenge that comes my way.
Deeper into the water, I could stand up and face the waves with boldness. When I dive deeper into scripture, God makes my burdens easier to carry. I’m learning every day to find the joy in the waves and allow God to carry the weight.
God waits for us to take the first step deeper into the waters. Sometimes our challenges may be too hard to take on by ourselves. But God is by our side wherever we go. We don’t have to carry the weight alone.
